Have a Beautiful Day

 This week I've been in the dry embossing mode... and today I have two more to share

With my first card, I am playing along with the 
  • I love this overall patterned EF (Practical Publishing - Floral Fancies EF) and think it looks like tiny flowers - which prompted me to die cut a heap of these little ones from the Sizzix Small Tattered Florals set from coloured card
  • In my stash I had some green smooched die cut leafy stems - Sizzix Delicate Leaves set and attached these to the embossed panel onto a white card.
  • And then set about covering the stems with tiny flowers, then added white Nuvo Crystal Drops to the flower centers.
  • To finish, stamped the sentiment (Stamping & Papercraft - All Season Wreath set) with Versamark and heat embossed with white EP, on a matching green card strip

  • This card came about because I was searching through my drawer of pre-stamped images (these are years OLD), and this one tickled my fancy for a male card... had to colour this with pencils as not sure the old card would hold up the water, added some silver glitter pen to the dial and hand and fussy cut it out
  • A friend gifted me this unknown EF which had a lovely circle in the centre just the right size for my image
  • I embossed it onto Core'dinations Retro Mod Squad blue card and sanded the raised embossing
  • Attached all the elements to a white card and finished with a stamped clear embossed sentiment - Darkroom Door - Happy Birthday set
  • I think there are a few witty remarks can be added on the inside when I use the card... "...not even father time can hold up time for you",  or  ".... you old codger"

Thanks for stopping by my blog..   have a Wonderful day  ..  Cheers Robyn


  1. I love it when you can make use of stash you've had in your pile for a while! And how satisfying that the centre of the lovely embossing folder fit your image. I like how you used the textured card as I think this gives a more masculine feel too. Thanks for playing along with The Male Room. x

  2. OH WOW!!! Both cards are FABULOUS! Love the embossed background you chose to go with your beautiful yellow flowers and that masculine card is AWESOME! Thanks so much for playing in our challenge at Can You Handle The Pressure … we appreciate your support and hope to see you again next challenge!

  3. Both cards are fabulous!! The floral one is gorgeous and the father time one so fun!! Thank you for joining our challenge at Can You Handle The Pressure!

  4. Two wonderful cards Robyn! LOVE the gorgeous and colourful flower with all those amazing blossoms. So pretty! And what a great masculine card. Love the background and the perfect clockface image. So cool! xx

  5. Beautiful yellow florals with the gorgeous embossing folder. Thank you for sharing with us at CYHTP Embossing Folder challenge.

  6. Two beautiful cards, Robyn! Love them both, but your old Father time card is 'wow' and I love how you used that folder and the images in combination together, Jo x

  7. Both of these are lovely but that beautiful texture with the yellow flower spray is just an eyecatcher for sure.

  8. Fabulous cards, love the rusty look on the blue one and the images you used. Thank you for joining The Male Room "dry embossing" challenge. I hope to see you in our new "sport" challenge also.

  9. Oh my, Robyn - just adore your yellow flower sprigs! Must've taken a lot of patience to cut all those :) Fun masculine card too with Father Time!
