Merry Monday #95!

Do you own an animal stamps? Time to dig them out if you do! Any type of animal will do for this week's challenge at Merry Monday! I hope you plan on joining us as we have lots of fun with our group and in store with you!

 
The animal I choose for my card this week is the little reindeer image from the "Joyous Celebrations" stamp set (retired):

I started out by adding ink to my "Holiday Frame" embossing folder (retired) using my "Brayer" and "Craft White Ink" and running my cardstock through the "Big Shot Machine". I then sprinkled with "White Embossing Powder" as this ink stays wet long enough to emboss and set with my "Heat Tool":


Did you notice the red sequins? I used a red Permanent marker and colored my "Gold Sequins":

 
Here is a list of Stampin' Up! products I used on my card for this week:
  • Cardstock: Real Red, Baked Brown Sugar, Coastal Cabana, Whisper White
  • Inks: Craft White, Baked Brown Sugar
  • Stamps: Joyous Celebrations (retired)
  • Accessories: Real Red 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, Gold Sequins
  • Tools: Stampin' Dimensionals, Big Shot Machine, Holiday Frame Embossing Folder (retired), White Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Ovals Collection Framelits Dies, Mini Glue Dots, Paper Piercing Tool, Essentials Paper Piercing Pack
Make sure you visit my teammates on the Merry Makers team for inspiration this week!

  1. Oh Debbie, this is luscious!!!!! I have never tried that technique with any Embossing Folder but this looks amazing. Can you please tell me which side of the EF did you ink? in the photo looks like you applied the ink to the "bottom" side?? It looks so beautiful, I'm drooling here.
    Thank you for sharing.

  13. That trick of coloring the sequins with a permanent marker is brilliant! And it solves the problem of not having the right color. I love everything about your card the sparkly embossed debossed section, the cutie reindeer and the sequins. Great card!
