Admidst the kleenex...

I was able to create some cards today. I seem to have caught a really bad cold, one where after a while it hurts to blow your nose because you've already blown it 5 times in the last hour.

On another note, my camera has been annoying me lately! I haven't been able to take any close up pictures of my projects without them going fuzzy. I couldn't figure out why there wasn't a close-up setting on there. I finally pulled out the manual and read it...and found the button. So enjoy these extra close-up pictures of some of my latest cards.
This one was really simple. The finished size is 3" x 3 1/2". I stamped 3 hearts, cut them out and adhered to the card with foam tape. Stamped the xoxoxo, and tied a chocolate brown ribbon. Probably took about 5 minutes.

I've been wanting to try heat embossing images onto ribbon, so this was my first attempt. I had trouble with the first image...too much static on the ribbon:
The embossing worked, but it wasn't a clear image, kind of looks like it's snowing. I don't have one of those de-static things from Stampin' Up, so I thought about what the next best thing for removing static would be and came up with: A dryer sheet! I rubbed it on the ribbon and then stamped and put on embossing powder and as you can see it turned out a lot better!

This one reminded me of strawberry lemonade. I started out with the ribbon. I've had it for a while and hadn't used it on anything yet.

Look at the close up of that bow! Amazing! (Ok, so maybe I got a little too excited about the close up function on my camera!)

This image and ink are from Stampin'Up. It's groovy guava. Very cute!

I also tried heat embossing on this one. It worked alright, but because of the fabric content of the organza ribbon, the heat gun melted part of the ribbon and made it a little crinkly. I didn't mind the crinkly, it gave it a little texture, but the melted part I hid on the inside of the card :)
