Tek Tuesday ~ Embossing on Fabric!!

Hey there crafters...ughh what happened to Tuesday?? See what happens after a long weekend up here in igloo country ...Yes, we celebrated Victoria Day weekend (aka. May 2-4) what a hoot!! Fireworks, barbecues with good friends, the kiddies playing and having so much fun. So for this week's Tek Wednesday I found this very informative Tutorial here at Shelley's (aka. Scrappergirl). I never really thought about embossing on fabric to use with card making, I really have trouble thinking outside the box at times... hee, hee. I stumbled upon Shelley's blog looking for info on Embossing techniques. Her stuff is fantastic!! Check out her amazing Photography skills too...Shelley you rock!!

Kendra and I didn't didn't get much crafting in this past week...too much going on outside, kids soccer in full swing, barbecueing & relaxing with the neighbours, yard work, gardening... oh and also nursing husbands with a pinched nerve. Yes, Joe pinched a nerve in his back a week ago and we had to call an was pretty scary. He's coming along though, back to work today but taking it slow. So I've been playing nurse too Fink!! I did have to make a card this week for Joe's neice's confirmation...I realized other than our Angels we don't really have any religious images. So I drew an ornate cross that will be released next month at the Cafe store... here's our (My) card. Kendra helped lots...Thanks Kendra. I forgot, Kendra and I made coffee filter flowers after she posted last weeks Tek Tuesday...oh no that was Tek Wednesday too...hee, hee.

I'm really happy with the cross I drew very vintage looking. I used Kendra's Copics to colour the pearl drop. Here's a close up of the sentiment which is included with the cross and various other sentiments and occasions phrases.

There's one of the roses I made, I like how it turned out, I had a tough time with scrunching and poofing them as Kendra calls it. We both made about 7 or 8 each so watch for them on our cards.

Here's one more of the card laying flat. I love these tag nesties that my friendly neighbourhood craft store has. Kendra cut out a duplicate of this tag in box card to reinforce it because it hangs off the edge when the card is open. I inked the edges of it in Brown. The cross also with inked edges and raised up on pop dots. Because the two main elemnets are so ornate I used very little embelllies. The lace ribbon is from Dollarama.

While we were making that Kendra was also playing with her new "buckles" Nesties, I think that's what their called... She'll be here soon with pics. Kendra was trying her new embossing powders doing a few layers on box card, what a huge transformation. This is what ispired my Tek Wednesday Tutorial.

Wow this weeks flying by...see you tomorrow to announce this week's Feature Friday Winner!!...

Nurse Kelly & Kendra
