Embossing Spacer

100_6878Today’s card showcases one of the new Heartfelt Creations stamp sets that Cropstop added to the store this year.  You’ll want to stop by and check them out – they make beautiful focal points for your cards!

To create this slightly larger card, I embossed a piece of cream cardstock using the Circular Grid embossing folder from Anna Griffin and the Oval Embossing Spacer. Cropstop carries two different wooden spacer plates – a rectangular one and an oval one. It lets you emboss your cardstock leaving a smooth opening for stamping in.  I chose a stamp from the All Things Are Possible (Heartfelt Creations) set and stamped it in Black Soot Distress ink. I colored parts of the image in using my Prismacolor Pencils and drew a light oval line around my image using the spacer as a guide.

100_6881Those lovely flowers were die cut from the Creative Expressions die, Exquisite Poppy, and have just a bit of Broken China Distress Oxide ink on the outer edges.  I used the leaf, branch, and frond punches (Martha Stewart) to add a bit of greenery under my blooms. Tiny white pearls adorn the center. In the upper corner I added a Baker’s Twine bow with a little Candi dot (Saville Row) in the center. (Cropstop sells a wide variety of Candi dots for embellishing your projects – you can check them out here.)

I’d love to see the projects you’re working on these days. Stop by the CURRENT CHALLENGE and link up your creations that use products from companies Cropstop carries in the store! Happy Crafting!
