Hi Creative Embellishment fans, Maggi here to show you two entirely different cards; it’s my split personality showing through!! 😁
Collaboration with Rinea
This month our designers are joining forces with Rinea Spark Your Creativity and creating with Rinea foils and CE’s wonderful embellishments. I used a gold 4″ x 6″ sheet of gold foil from Rinea’s Metallic Variety Pack and embossed it with Tim Holtz’s 3-D Texture Fades – Gears Embossing Folder. Then I dampened a paper towel with Alcohol Blending Solution and wiped it over the embossed surface removing much of the gold color revealing the silver tones. To grunge it up a bit, I misted with black mist and heat dried.
The embossed foil begged for a frame and Creative Embellishments Steampunk Frame was perfect. I heat embossed the frame with Lindy’s Midnight Gold embossing powder. I topped the frame with a couple gears heat embossed with gold embossing powder.
My favorite part of this card has to be the sentiment (from Tim Holtz Big Talk – Snarky) which I can so relate to!!! I popped it up with foam tape and mounted on a piece of embossed silver Rinea foil. I wanted a really grumpy face for the card and this dog was all I could find. It’s a stamped image (Tim’s Crazy Dogs), inked, fussy cut and popped up with foam.
I have two standard poodles who rule my home and life so I like to make poodle cards, tags and layouts! For this card I used the larger of the frames in the Fancy Oval Frame Set and heat embossed it with Eileen Hull Designs Molten Dimensions White Wonder embossing powder. It is a super chunky powder that retains it’s chunkiness when heated. I used an older Valentine’s collection from Simple Stories and just layered up a couple of papers, added the frame, the poodle die-cut and the stamped sentiment (Tonic Studios set).
