Have you ever had a project that you wanted to use black embossing powder on but couldn’t find any? Good news, you can emboss in black without having to use black embossing powder! Today’s project features a set from the Occasions catalog that launched this month, In The Trees. I really love this set, and knew right away I wanted to emboss the tree before coloring it. I love how the embossing powder adds texture and shimmer to this project.
The colors I used for the leaves are Tranquil Tide and Lemon Lime Twist. I think the contrast between the light and dark leaves is beautiful. The Soft Suede tree trunk adds a nice, natural element.
I also used the Aqua Painter with Soft Sky for the shadow under my tree. I love the watercolor effect this gives my card, but a Blender Pen would work really well, too.

The next card in my Clean & Quick Cards Series is this easy, white embossed present card with a simple sentiment. This card is VERY clean with just a few elements that really make it stand out.
With minimal supplies this card could be replicated with a variety of stamp sets and materials. Using this format, you could make a card for just about any reason in a matter of minutes!
I’m a huge fan of white embossing on a darker colored base, and the Crumb Cake base on this card is absolutely perfect for this technique! The glitter enamel dots give a pop of color and can easily be changed out for pearls or rhinestones to keep it neutral.

This is the third out of four videos for my latest Stamping Saturday that I do live over on my Facebook page every month. What a cute gift to give to your Thanksgiving host or hostess this year so they have some handmade tags ready to decorate their Christmas gifts!
We used the Season Like Christmas stamp set, along with some thinlits from the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits Dies. The Scalloped Tag Topper Punch really adds a professional touch to this gift box and tag set!

I am in LOVE with the Special Reason bundle in the Occasions catalog! There are so many possibilities from feminine to masculine to neutral!
I was playing around with the leaves and cut WAY too many… or so I thought! I started building them onto the Woodland card front and POOF! My card was transformed into a wonderful cascading waterfall of leaves!
