Technique Blog Hop - Irresistible Texture

It's time for another technique hop! This month we are featuring our embossing folders. Our newest ones can be seen on page 11 
of Seasonal Expressions!

If you've arrived from Wendy's blog you're on the right track! Just keep clicking the link at the end of the post to continue on the hop.

My card features the Diamond embossing folder. I love the versatility of this folder. Can't you imagine it for just about any project? I did the embossing on a piece of B&T paper from the new Hopscotch paper pack. I love the subtle pattern under the embossing. 

The stamp set is called A Little Note. I colored it with a blending pen and lifting ink off the lid of the stamp pad. Some 3D Foam and piece of Flaxen Extra Thick Twine finished off the look. But wait! needed some bling! It's hard to see in the photo, but each daffodil has a Bitty Sparkle in the center. Plus there are 3 Puffy butterflies from our new Junebug Puffies!
