DCM Little Extra

"Well, as you know Tuesday is the day we have our new look Little Extra dare and this week the team have let me (Sue) loose to do my own thing, so I thought I’d ‘attempt’ to do a little tutorial for you….please be gentle with me!" (It's her birthday today :))

Check out Sue's fabulous tutorial on all the different dry embossing methods.......Well done Sue! My card uses two of the methods from the tutorial. One being hand embossing using a light box and the other is using an embossing folder.

Paper is K & Co, flowers are Prima and the ribbon is from Ribbon Oasis I'm not sure what make the stencil is as I've had it for ages. Once I'd embossed it I just swiped over it with a pale pink chalk ink pad.

I've also completed some of my samples for Nikki from Dewdrop Craftz and have a sneaky peek for you :)The stamp will be released on 1st October and £1 from the sale of each stamp will be going to the Macmillan nurses who do the most amazing work and certainly looked after my grandmother well during her last few months.

That's it for now, I need to scrap...........it's my brother's birthday in four weeks and I have done precisely two pages in his album!!!!

Take care and TFL
