Texture Emboss Projects For an Extra "WOW"

Looking for a way to "WOW"?
Add some texture embossing. 
Here are some samples to show what I mean.

This first image shows a simple, beautiful way to feature a small stamp as the main focal point. The colors,  Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive are nicely balanced with matching inks and paper colors. The stamp is featured on coordinating punched ovals (the Extra Large Oval Punch and Scallop Oval Punch) and highlighted by a strip of matching paper.

By the way: these 2 cards were part of a series of posts I did on uses for scrap papers. You can read those original posts here.

Now for the "WOW": There's really only 2 differences in the Jazzed up version. The horizontal strip of paper has been punched with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch and the bottom part of the card has some texture embossing done with one of the Delicate Designs embossing folders (which happen to be on sale this week!)

Everybody loves a sale, right? Did you know that Stampin'UP! has a sale every week!  New items are announced each Tuesday - which has become my favorite day of the week! 

Here are the items on sale this week. They always seem to come up with a nice balance of embellishments, and Big Shot accessories and a digital item.



I appreciate your business and I'm here to help, contact me with any questions
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you've been inspired
