Popping Up Poppies

Dear Blog,

I won this embossing folder at a card class last Saturday and was determined to use it.  It is not my best work, but it's okay.

I like the colors.  That embossing folder was hard on my cardstock.  :-) 


  1. Did it kinda go through your cardstock in places? I've had that happen and I read somewhere that if you lightly mist the back of your cardstock before you run it through really detailed embossing folders that will help. I guess it makes it emboss more easily, so the folder or design doesn't tear through your cardstock. I haven't tried it yet, though. So maybe you want to be the guinea pig for this tip? :) I'll follow you now so I can check back and see how it works, if you try it out, I mean. Deeyll(from WOYWW)

    1. I will definitely have to try that because that is exactly what happened.

  2. What a gorgeous embossing folder and how lucky are you to have it? I love the card you have made using it.
    I occasionally get the card torn at places with embossing folders. I use a Big Shot and if this happens I sometimes use the next shim down on the pad and then place chipboard as a shim but not quite so thick as the shim. The tip above sounds good so I may just try that next time. Or else use slightly thinner cardstock.
    Stick at it, you will find your own way. That is what crafting is about yes?

    1. That is exactly what crafting is about - trial and error. ;-)
