Spring Card for Challenges



Hi friends! 
I'm here to share a quick CAS card I made using W+9 Hello Sunshine dies, MFT frame die + Uniko sentiment, heat embossed with FANTASTIC Hero Arts white embossing powder. I purchased this embossing powder a couple of weeks ago and I tell you it beats all the other white embossing powders I've ever tried! Fantastic product. My original plan had no embellies, just the die cuts, but I had done bad job parting the cloud dies from their "strings" and the edge of the smaller cloud cut a small hole to my paper. The clear drops came to rescue... One looked a bit lonely so I gave her a friend too. :)

I'm entering:

Less is More : Spring Walk

Today there hasn't come anything from the sky yet but being a dog owner (I have a soon 3 years old schnauzer) I've experienced both rain and snow lately! Finnish spring is very unpredictable. :)


CAS Mix Up: Inlaid Die Cutting
My smaller cloud is inlaid to vary the dimension of the clouds even more. My own choices are "normal die cutting" + heat embossing the stamped sentiment + using clear drops.


This white HA embossing powder might me my favorite embossing powder ever! I need to try other colors of HA powders too! 

Thanks for popping by and have wonderful Easter Sunday!

  1. What a lovely card Nonni. Love all that stitching and the colours you have used. I'm on the lookout for a new embossing powder as mine isn't always crisp for sentiments so I shall give the HA one a try.

  6. White EPs aren't all of good quality, mine is an extra fine powder from Tim Holtz that I'm happy with but I've got a few I don't feel work for fine detailing. The little drops fit right in, like they were planned for.

  8. Such a gorgeous card, Nonni! I love the colors you used and seeing your card again with that beautiful border reminds me that I have yet to order for myself! I think (and hope) that snow is firmly in my rearview mirror now. Today the temps have soared to 83 Fahrenheit/28 Celsius making me wonder what happened to spring. :) It'll eventually return later this week but I can't complain about the warm temps, although my 11.5 year old mini schnauzer is not too crazy about it. She's been very mellow and reluctant to stay outside for too long.
