DCM midweek: did we make an impression

The midweek dare was set by Sue, who did a great tutorial and showed some marvellous examples of dry embossing, including pergamano, which I just don't have the patience to do.

So my attempts have simply been done using Cuttlebug embossing folders.

On the first card I used the front of a Papermania card that had a pastel pattern of random circles on it. Having run this through my machine, I then inked the surface and added a stamped image of one of the flower foam stamps from QVC:

The second one is a gatefold card, similarly using an embossing folder and inking - the fairy etc are rub ons:

and this is the inside of the card, the card blank itself having an iridescent sheen:


  1. you have been busy hazel,what beautiful cards :)

  2. Lovely Hazel, the fairy looks right at home.

  3. I love the effect of the embossing on patterned paper Hazel...very pretty X

  4. love the cards Hazel, that first one is so elegant

  5. I'm continually so impressed by the quality of the image you get from those foam stamps Hazel - lovely cards!

  6. You have been busy Hazel.
    The top one is my favourite with the stamped image on top of the embossed card. Such a lovely idea to combine the two.

  7. Beautiful Hazel…….……….and not one card but two no less!
    I love the inked embossing; it creates such a great effect I always think.

  8. I love these cards.....and I love your blog site. Your work is so inspiring. Thanks for sharing with all of us bloggers. ;-)
