Tag Archives: embossing


Hi friends!

I took a calligraphy class a year ago and wanted to incorporate it into my cards. But the calligraphy ink together with the cardstock doesn’t work, they really dont like each other and the ink bleeds everywhere… And as I couldn’t use calligraphy on cards I don’t write calligraphy as much as I used to anymore.

When I was re-organizing my craft space this weekend I found an embossing pen from Tsukineko that I forgot I even bought. ( Husband, are you reading – The pen was on sale. Or maybe even for free… ) And the best part?? It has a regular tip AND a calligraphy tip! Yay! So now I can write calligraphy and heat emboss it! I know I’m being a total nerd about this, but I’m so HAPPY! ( I love my Versamark pen also, but it has a bullet tip and a brush tip so I can’t use it to write calligraphy. )

I have to practice on my writing, I don’t think my teacher would approve the writing on this card, but hopefully I can get back to where I was with some practice. 🙂 So this is the story about how this card came together…LOL… I know, I’m a TOTAL CRAFT NERD….

By the way, “Hurra” means Horray in English.

As always, thank you so much for stopping by and take care!

Flowers painted with distress ink


Today I made a card using some Hero Arts flower cling stamps.

I stamped them with versamark and heat embossed them with white embossing powder. After they where dry I cut them out and added some wink of stella and some glossy accent. I used the small hello die from Simon Says stamp and added wink of stella and glossy accent to that too. The background is made with distress ink and I also sprayed some perfect pearls mixed with water over it. To finish off I drew black lines to create a frame.

I’m not super happy how this card turned out but I thought I shared it anyway… 🙂


Take care!
