WRMK next level embossing folders

W.O.W I just tried out the new We are Memory Keepers next level embossing folders. I have always had a love of embossing, but these babies really do take it to the next level! The dimension and texture is truly amazing and so different to what we have seen before. Here are a few pieces I have simply water coloured and then run through the big shot using the folders. I think I am in love!

Bird crazy birthday card

Well, it's my lovely Hubby's birthday coming up & I needed to make a card. I also wanted to use some new supplies I got recently being the Tim Holtz Bird Crazy stamps & Zig Clean Colour real brush markers, so it was a match made in heaven to come up with this card for him. I love how the eyes & beak & wings can be cut out separately (using the dies, which Yu can buy separately) with no white outline. How cool is that?! Also, I used the dies that I bought that go with the 'crazy things' stamp set to cut out the balloon, hat & present. Saved me from having to mask out the hat. Gotta be happy with that right? I splatters some rally watered down zig markers for the background, which is on a lawn fawn stitched rectangles die. I stamped the 'happy birthday' Se time to from the 'crazy talk' stamp set. This stamp set is a great one I probably word have purchased even without the bird sets, I love the fun sayings & fonts on it for so many different occasions. I used a little wink of Stella on the hat, balloon and ribbon on the gift. Then for some shine added glossy accents on the ballon. It was all mounted on some lawn fawn patterned paper to frame it up. On the inside I will stamp 'you're how old?' - how funny is that! Hope you like my little card, and most importantly, I hope Hubby does too!

Minc foil storage

Hi there people! I have a problem.. No it's not hoarding! Lol (well, it kinda is.. It we'll get to that!) I recently got a Heidi Swapp Minc machine, which I LOVE! But (this is the hoarding bit) I can't stop buying all the gorgeous foils out there! And I need a better way to store them. I don't want to lose any off cuts, or damage all that gorgeousness! So I will do some thinking & let you know what I come up with.
If you have any ideas, please be sure to let me know. Happy foiling!
