Clean & Simple Die-cutting

I really enjoyed watching Kristina's video today. I love any reason to pull out my Tim Holtz distress tool (Festive Berries, Worn Lipstick, & Spun Sugar ink). I used a die from MFT called duo bracket die and a stamp set from SU (I think it is a hostess set).  I used a paint brush and my TH ink pads to watercolor the flower.   I like the soft look of this card. I plan to make few more while I have all the supplies out. Sorry for the dark photo, I finished after the sunset here in Iowa.

Clean & Simple Embossing Card 2

Okay so I had to try again, like I said with my first card, I LOVE embossing! 
I discovered a couple things this time.  I used an embossing buddy and I had to get rid of the powdery reside to get my post a note tape to stay put. And I decided it is a better idea to use just a little bit of embossing powder and throw it out because I see little specks of the other colors in my left over powder. I don't like even a few little pieces contaminating my EP bottle. 
I hope you like my card. I need more bottles of colored EP -ASAP!
Supplies: Hero Arts Birthday Blackboard Woodblock, Hero Arts Tiny Flags Woodblock, SU embossing powders.

I am alway in for some embossing! It is my favorite technique! I loved making the grateful (die MFT) embellishment, I did 3 layers of embossing. Hope you are having an amazing Monday.
