It's IN THE PINK time again...


Hi Best Blogging Buddies...

Well I'm back to my favourite colour today.... (and you may well have guessed what THAT is... ) as it's time for another challenge over at In The Pink!!

This time we decided to go for Embossing....  either dry or heat!  Soooooo I decided to do one of each.

On my first - I've used an embossing folder, with lots of gems and glitter......  she looks just ready for her special day, don't you think?

Card recipe:

  • Image - Saturated Canary - Double Take
  • Coloured with copics
  • Glamour dust on dress
  • Embossing Folder - QuickKutz - Diamonds and Dots
  • Gems from stash
  • Pretty in Pink and Crumb Cake Cardstock from Stamping Up
Now to my second card....


This time I used heat embossing...  to be exact, I used my favourite embossing powders.... Frantage from Stampendous.... for this little fairy's wings....  that powder is sooooooooo gorgeous... then it's sprinkled with silver halo mix...  which gives it the bling!!

Hopefully I've caught the dazzle well enough for you to see on the photograph.  It really is extra sparkly in real life - I think I'm in love with this product!!

Card Recipe:
  • Image - Standing on a Flower from A Day for Daisies
  • Coloured with copics
  • Embossing Powder - Stampendous Frantage Aged Rose with Silver Halo mixed in
  • DP from Papermania - Lucy Cromwell collection
  • Bazzil cardstock
  • Glamour Dust on flowers
On both cards, I tried to add embellishments....  but hard as I tried,  i eventually figured they didn't need any... as whatever I put only detracted from the image, and that's not the idea, is it?? LOL!

If you'd like to join in the challenge this time.... hop on over to In The Pink!

Can I say a big thank you to all my blogging friends who leave comments....  and also a thank you to my new followers too... I hope you enjoy following my ramblings!

Well I think I've now got my pink fix for this week....  ahhhhhhhhhh..... now I'm happy!!

Big hugs to all
Christine x
