The Flower Challenge Reminder #52 Heat/Dry Embossing

Time for a reminder card for The Flower Challenge #52

This time I have used this beautiful 3D embossing folder Sizzix Tim Holtz 
Isn't this image a stunner.

Really easy to emboss and coloured with Copics. Blending and depth made so easy
with this style of embossing.

It wasn't till I was writing my last post on 3D folders that I remembered that I actually had
some from years ago I think from Stamping Up. Barely used and when I went searching I remembered I decided to give away most of my folders because I don't use them, therefore proving we should never have destashs or giveaways and we should just hoard everything.

I love how this card turned out and the ease of colouring. Now it's time to go check out what the rest of the Design Team have been up to and get some inspiration.

Thank you so much for coming to visit and I hope to see you again soon.

Yes I agree, 'hoard everything' lol. No, acutally I can't, I need to purge lol. Your card is truly beautiful and YES these embossing folders are proving to be such fun!

Absolutely stunning card again Aileen! I love your copic colouring on the embossed paper. Not only coloured to perfection, but the embossing adds more depth and dimension. Such a great combo. I'm loving this technique and how will be buying more 3D folders! I'm with you ... I rarely use my old folders, but glad I did hang on to them. Agree that destash always ends in disappointment when you realize you've given away something you need! :) xx

I have this folder but have never used. This is one of the prettiest uses of it I've seen! Really nicely done. And I completely agree about never destashing. The moment you do, that's when it's finally needed or wanted lol. xoxo

And, if you are going to destash, you should just consider sending everything to your good crafty friends that love you!! 🤗🤗🤭🤭🥰🥰!! This is such a beautiful project! Before I read the theme for the month, my eye popped straight to your card and I stared at it trying to figure out if it was a fussy-cut flower & thought the stems were so skinny that it would be impossible! Then I realized that it was a folder, but there's nothing like the new 3D folders. So much detail!! And you did such an amazing job bringing out the details in the folder! I wouldn't have been able to see many of those! Stunning job!!

I can’t believe that’s an embossing folder, Aileen. So beautiful and wonderful job of coloring.
