Playtime!

I've been bad.  Very, very bad.  I've pretty much locked myself in my office for the past few days and indulged myself in play time!  For me, that mean anything from stamping, scrapbooking, using punches, die cuts, etc. 

I just learned a new technique and was so excited I thought I'd blog it for anyone that might be interested.  It's called embedded embossing.  Here are two samples of what I did.  These are my first attempts so cut me a little slack. ha!





Can you see the texture in the paper?  I just think this is so fun. 

 You may never see me on here again (oh stop dancing for joy, I WILL be back)!

I think your first attempts are really successful!! I love the cards and admire you for trying something new--I'm not that brave...But I do have a puppy! :-))

Pretty cool attempts, Jill. I'd say you've done this before. I love both of them, so different yet using the same textured paper. It's been eons since I've done anything crafty besides crochet.

I just learned that technique last week! Isn't it fun? Do you have a Cuttlebug or (I think it's called) a Big Shot?
I love my Cuttlebug!

I don't do it either but is sure is pretty. I started a scrapbook in the 50's before all the pretty stuff. Just pictures and articles about anyone I have ever met that came out in a newspaper. I met the man who wrote "There Will Always Be Honky Tonks In Texas". Now is that important or what? lol

Love it Jill, You are very creative. All my stuff is still sitting in boxes...this makes me want to get it out and stamp like a wild women.
