Awesomely Artistic IS Awesome!

I got a box of new goodies this week and one of the first things I had to play with was this great new set...Awesomely Artistic. There are so many really nice elements in this set that I know it's going to be a favorite!

Another new catalog favorite is the Brick Wall Embossing Folder. I love that it is 6x6 so that it will work perfectly for any card, no matter the orientation.

I love dragonflies, and it's been a while since I've had a new dragonfly stamp. I cut off his wings...that sounds mean!, but they got extra special treatment with some Dazzling Details to make them shimmer.

Have an awesome weekend!

Edited to add: If you love this original card I designed, then you are sure to love my latest tutorial which combines the beautiful new stamp sets Awesomely Artistic, used above, along with The Wilderness Awaits. I will take you step by step to create this embossed brick wall background above, plus a lot more.

May I ask what treatment you have given to the wall to make it look so realistic? Great card!

Kim said...

I agree with Linda, your coloring on the brick is awesome! Really pretty card!

Thanks ladies! First I tried running the EF through the big shot inked but didn't like the way it turned out. So the second try was just inking the embossed piece using sponge daubers. I was just playing & experimenting, so don't remember for sure what colors I used.

Beautiful card. Love the background.

This is absolutely beautiful! I can't wait to get my hands on that EF and play with it.


Just curious, was that a Stampin Up embossing folder?, or another brand?

Thank You!

Hi Donna, Yes this is a new embossing folder from SU! called Brick Wall it's a larger size at 6x6 so that makes it really nice as well.

Lovely card! I have a couple of brick wall embossing folders, but I do like that 6x6 size. It would be nice if SU brought out more like that.
