Creation Station Blog Hop - Anything Embossing!

Welcome to Just Julie B Stampin' - and welcome to the Creation Station Blog Hop for August! We are creating with 'anything embossing'! And my favorite (and easiest) way of embossing is dry embossing with our embossing folders. It just adds that needed bit of texture, and with very little effort.

So the card I made here was for a class I recently held, and I Love, Love, Love it! I used the Kindest Gnomes Bundle, and mostly the Gnomes Dies to create this fun card. And the Timber 3D Folder was a subtle, but perfect background for one of the layers.

I used the Sale-A-Bration designer series papers, Rings Of Love for the card front, and used that for my color palette. I highlighted Poppy Parade, Mint Macaron, White and Soft Suede, with Crumb Cake as an added neutral. - I love that our designer series papers guide the perfection of our color choices for cards!

And I know I haven't said it yet - but I LOVE these gnomes!!! There are just four dies that make this perfect little guy! So easy, and so adaptable for any occasion! And how cute are the little mushroom accent pieces too, right?!

I did finish the inside of the card, but kept it very simple! I've been doing this a lot lately - using just a 1/2" scrap piece to accent the inside with a piece of designer paper that matches the card front. So simple, makes it all come together, and uses up those little extra scraps - Win, Win, Win!

I hope you enjoyed your quick stop by! And hope you continue to hop onto the next stop, where Denita will wow us with her creation -

See you soon,

Julie B

Your little gnome really made me smile this morning. Love the fresh, fun feel of your color choices and the dry embossed background is the perfect bit of extra texture.
