Embossalicious Folders

Crafter's Companion have shows on the German Shopping Channel HSE 24 on June 11th showcasing the fabulous Die'sire Embossalicious Embossing Folders and I created a few samples for the shows.
My first card uses the gorgeous 6" x 6" Elegant Frame embossing folder which I have embossed onto Core'dinations card stock and sanded to reveal the core.
I added three wooden bird cages for dimension along with some natural twine and a small tag with the sentiment 'hello' added to the top.
I have also added a pewter bird cage charm which I coloured with ginger alcohol ink to coordinate with my card. Three wooden hearts have been added along with natural twine to the top of each cage.
I also added a large dimensional flower cut from white card using the Die'sire Camelia Quilling die, colouring the edges of the flower with Distress Ink.
My next sample for the shows is totally different, a real masculine steampunk feel to this piece using the Gun Metal embossing folder embossed onto metal and coloured with Alcohol Inks and then sanded with wire wool.
I added the focal image to a Scalloped Tag, coloured with brushed corduroy Distress Ink and flicked with water.
I added a smaller scalloped tag, stamped with text using black Archival Ink and added metal embellishments to cordinate along with two wooden moustaches.
Three small brass keys were added to the left had side of my card for further interest.

Thanks so much for stopping by, Tracy x x
