Lean on Me and New Embossing Folders!

Two new embossing folders are featured on today’s card, and they both work really well together too!  The Herringbone Textured Embossing Folder, and Stripes are paired along with another new product / stamp set: Lean on Me!  

AND… it’s Wednesday, so it’s also time for the Diva Coffee Break Designs Team Challenge!  Today’s challenge requires that we use Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight, and Cherry Cobbler in our Cards and/or projects.  LOL, I tried to stamp flowers, but just couldn’t have yucky brown leaves and stems (even tried the vintage route but wasn’t satisfied with the results). 

Lean on Me was the perfect solution to my dilemma!  The little girl in a raincoat, carrying an umbrella fit quite well into today’s Color Challenge scheme!

Love that little girl image… in her yellow raincoat and singing/dancing in the rain… la, la, la, la….

The stripes embossing folder was a little difficult to photograph… but you can see it here along with the three cherry cobbler brads.

I actually made seven new cards yesterday morning, and had an opportunity to play around with this embossing folder quite a bit… my head is spinning with potential and ideas… just wait!

And finished off the loser corner with a Cherry Cobbler button tied with Hemp Twine, and attached with mini glue dots.  You can see a bit of the herringbone pattern in this photo too.

Hope you’ll come play along with the Divas this week… just link back to our post at Diva Coffee Break Designs, and then leave a comment with your blog address.  (We seem to be having technical difficulties with the linky tool…)

See you tomorrow with a new challenge from the Creative-Sketches Design Team! 

Remember you can shop for new catalog products online in my Stampin’ Up! Store…. and even take advantage of clearance rack items at my Clearance Rack Store too!  With the convenience of having your merchandise delivered right to you door, think about how much gas you can save!

Hugs,

Sharon

Love what you did with that stamp set and with the embossing folders. Can't wait to see what you come up with using those embossing folders!

What a gorgeous color combination. The Early Espresso made your focal picture POP. That little stamp set is adorable too. That is one pretty card!

I LOVE YOUR CARD. IT WAS A LITTLE HARD TO SEE THE EMBOSSING, SO I AM GLAD THAT YOU MENTIONED IT IN YOUR DESCRIPTIONS SO I COULD LOOK MORE CLOSELY TO IT. IT'S GREAT TO SEE YOUR DETAILS. MAKES THE CARD! TFS
