Stampin' Up! Card Ideas from Canadian Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Sandi MacIver

Stampin’ Up! Woodlands Embossing Folder


Hi stampers, Welcome to the Totally Techniques Blog Hop and my card for this month’s Technique Challenge is created with the Stampin’ Up! Woodlands Embossing Folder so I called it Woodlands Water colored.

You can find the Stampin’ Up! Woodlands Embossing Folder on page 39 of the  Holiday catalog with a coordinating stamp set; Among the Branches. (Links below)

This month the challenge was to watercolor an Embossed Background.  We could use the “Color Me Irresistible Specialty Designer Series Paper” or we could create our own embossed image.  Now who am I to walk away from that challenge, ha-ha…

This is the first of two finished versions, which actually started last night like this:
