And the Blog Candy winner is … Bette S. Her comment was:
I’m giving away some Blog Candy. Details to follow.
I saw a very similar version of this little beauty on Pinterest and I had to CASE it. I like how the focal point is mounted tone-on-tone. This adds a subtle dimension while maintaining a clean, simple look. Just gorgeous!
The pine and bough are heat embossed with white embossing powder. If you’re new to heat embossing, the Embossing Buddy is a must. It’s a little bag of powder that you rub on the cardstock before stamping. It removes any static in the paper and any oil from your fingerprints. Without doing so, specks of embossing powder will stick to these elements and you will end up with white specks where there shouldn’t be any!
Three of my favorite products are used here.
The color Old Olive, our 5/8″ Organza Ribbon and Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I’ve had a love affair with Old Olive for the past 15 years. I love that color!!! It’s my go-to for anything botanically green. It’s natural, earthy and sophisticated. Old Olive makes me happy. Love it!
Our Organza Ribbon is also a go-to for me. I use ribbon a lot and it’s typically this one. Ribbon adds dimension. It adds balance and a sense of flair. It’s a great filler when your project is simply missing “something.” And because this ribbon is a sheer white it goes with just about anything!
And Stampin’ Dimensionals … need I explain that one? That great little piece of sticky foam makes a big impact. It adds that little lift to help showcase the focal point of any project.
