Embossed, Debossed, and just plain BOSSY! Oh...wait....

I'm kind of bossy, actually. At least, I was. I probably still am, but it doesn't really come up as much when your a grown up. HOWEVER...today we are talking about getting EMbossy and DEbossy!

Yup. Made both of those words up and pretty darned happy about it if I do say so myself. Just say'n. I'm playing along with the Moxie Fab World Embossing and Debossing challenge. This was a little tricky for me simply because I don't have one of those fancy little embossing machines like a Cuttlebug or a Spellbinders Grand Calibur (which I think I want, but that' another story...). Nope. I don't own anything of the sort. SO...that being the case, I had to use what I had on hand. I DO have a Martha Stewart Scoring board, so I pulled that out along with a Martha Stewart embossing/debossing punch. Apparently Martha came to the rescue for me on this one. Great. Does that mean I owe her one? That CAN'T be good!!!!

Hello Kitty Be Mine Card


I had a bit of fun with this one and decided to go cutesy! I kind of love it, actually. It's a fun little Hello Kitty Valentine's Day card full of color and happy things! The papers are all Echo Park. The sticker is from the Target dollar bin...thanks to my sister for that little Christmas gift! Love them! And the punch is the Martha Stewart embossing punch of which I spoke earlier. It does the embossing/debossing at the same time as punching! FUN! I used my score board to do the embossed frame and then sanded the punched pieces and the frame to make them pop! The ribbon is just a fun one I found buried in my stash...I thought it went perfectly with this playful card!

I just love how cute it is! Sometimes cute is just plain fun! Just say'n.

And...it is Wednesday and that means it's time to showcase our workspaces with Julia over at WOYWW!

My desk is showing the aftermath of four cards that I created yesterday along with some rubber that I need to get cut and mounted (but I'm out of foam, so mounting may not happen...we shall see...). The Hubbums gave me that little bag yesterday. I love it! I'm going to make it even CUTER!!! So...there you have it! Oh...and yes, my Hello Kitty Be Mine card was, indeed, one of the ones I created in all that fun!

Happy Wednesday!

Jingle Out!

ETA: Check out this fabulous giveaway that Melissa is holding for her birthday!

  21. Hello Kitty is as cute today as she was when my daughter rendered me broke & desolate after BUYING her Hello Kitty stuff from 1978-1986! Actually, these days I find her WAY cuter because she doesn't cost me a cent! Your card is perfect! I have that same ribbon in my ribbon stash & it really DOES fit great there! And I NEEEEEED to look for that Martha punch/embosser/debosser! Coooool!
