A Two-Fer Day

Well, am I bright today or what??!!!!!!! I bought this new embossing folder set called Fall Set by Sizzix (2/pkg.) and when I saw the Splitcoast Free for All challenge today (embossing), I was ready to use it. It is very bright and I had a bit of a time trying to get a good photo. I used a Marvy clever lever embossing punch called Oak Leaf and stamped my sentiment using a barrel of alphabet stamps I picked up at Hobby Lobby. The twine is Cappuccino.





It is also Queen for the Day challenge #74 on Splitcoast today. The newly crowned Queen is Carolyn aka snowmanqueen. I can't believe I didn't do a snowman card as I love them soooooo much. This is the card I cased.  The image is Stampendous Star Lilies and the sentiment is Flourishes Zinnias. Colored with Copics, used a doily, and punched a Martha Stewart classic butterfly on which I stamped the sentiment I have on my Spellbinder nested pennant. The dp in unknown and the blue cardstock is DCWV and a terra-cotta cardstock.

Have a wonderful weekend!!!!!

Now THAT is how to use a detailed embossing folder! Whoo hoo! YOu've really done a great job by letting that fall scene shine on orange cardstock, with just a leaf and twine as accents. Way to go! ANd that second card has the most beautiful lilies! A beautiful card to honor 'snowmanqueen'.

Wow what great cards! I love that you stamped you sentiment on the oak leaf on the first card and how the doily is peeking out on the second but they are both simply beautiful.
