Big Hugs and Thankful Palms

I came up with a set today and it's satisfying to have a 2-for-1 moment~

The Ton Stamps Happy Palm/Easy Expressions, Pink and Main Beautiful Slimline dies, Tim Holtz Deckle Trimmer, Brutus Monroe Mustard Seed Cardstock

I split that gorgeous palm approximately 2/3 in and both pieces decorated decent sized cards.

Bravo Collage

I assembled some shinies (every season since it's been a blur ;) ) from my scrap pile and arranged them on a glitter embossed background~

AALL & Create Crashing Waves (Embossed), Stamplorations Bravo die, Avery Elle Wonky Stitches, Erin Lee Creative Triangle Collage, Brutus Monroe Snowflake die/Leaves die

If you're new to glossy paper, my suggestion is this...

cut a section out you plan to use and keep the rest shiny.

I have well-loved cutting plates and they leave marks on the rest of the shiny sheet. 

Trust me, you will get hooked and wanna shiny up all kinds of cuttings!!!

I'm amazed I don't hoard the stuff; to be honest.

#1 KPop Fan

The Greeting Farm K-Pop Idols,Darice Elephant Leaf Embossing Folder, Sizzix Texture Fades Rays, We R Memory Keepers Next Level Embossing Folder, Circle Dies

I brought out three embossing folders, all from different companies, for this challenge ;).

I forgot I even had the Elephant Leaf one until I pulled them out to see what I could merge on a card.

The bottom strip was done with We R Memory Keepers and the top with a Sizzix Texture Fade.

Although done in white, the three folders give it loads of interest.

Love that I can make use of these texture makers!

Thank you for your visit today~
