Irresistable Texture Technique Blog Hop

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop! 

This month there are 7 of us highlighting the “Irresistible Texture” technique, which focuses on using embossing folders to add that extra ooomph to your artwork. 

 This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique.

If you are coming from Tonya's Blog, you are on the right track!

For my item, I decided to create a card with both the new Hopscotch paper pack and the Hearts Embossing Folder. Both are available in our new Seasonal Expressions idea book that just came out.

I m not sure it shows up very well in the picture, but to make those cute hearts stand out just a bit more, I rubbed some indian corn blue ink over the cardstock once I had embossed it. It made a subtle difference that helped make the hearts pop off the page a abit more.

Here is a close up where you can see the detail a bit better. I chose one of our little "M" sized stamps for my sentiment because the heart detail coordinated perfectly. A little White Shimmer Trim and some silver sequins and sparkles brought the whole look together.

And here is a picture that shows all the patterns that come in the Hopscotch paper pack. I only focused on the top two. 

Now hop on over to Sheila's blog, which is also the start of the hop, to see what cuteness she came up with.

With a smile,
