Welcome to the ICR Blog Hop!
It has been a wonderful year at ICR and we are ending the year with a blog hop by all the
team members who were creating for ICR this year!
For this blog hop, we are creating cards with
any type of EMBOSSING.
It could be heat embossing (wet embossing) or,
embossing with an embossing folder (dry embossing)

I have a set of 5 christmas cards to share today.
I have used both wet and dry embossing techniques on all the cards.
I hope you enjoy reading about them as much as I enjoyed making them!!
For the first card, I doodled four christmas trees,
painted them using Sakura Koi watercolours and fussy cut them.
I then cut the snow bank using Mama Elephants's landscape trio dies and,
embossed the background with Cuttlebug embossing folders.
I then placed the background panel on a 5"x5" red card stock base.
I finished the card with a sentiment from Hero Arts and a bit of jute twine from MayArts.
I have seen versions of this card a lot on Instagram and Pinterest, and,
I was inspired to try making my own.
I embossed the background panel with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and,
blended Memento Summer Sky ink onto it.
I stacked three stitched circle die cuts one on top of the other and
added googly eyes, a shiny gemstone for the nose and a doodles smile.
I then added twigs, (die cut using Memory box dies)
for the arms and a doodled and coloured scarf.
I then placed the panel on a red card stock base and
added a sentiment from Hero Arts to finish the card.
I love the feeling of breeze, when I see this card
I particularly love this card!
I learnt how to colour the Holiday Bow from the Ton stamps,
The rest of the card is simple..
A Cuttlebug embossed background panel and,
a gold heat embossed sentiment on vellum finish the card.
I doodled another three Christmas trees, coloured and cut them for this card. Again, I used the Mama Elephant landscape trio dies to create the snowbank and Cuttlebug embossed the background.
I finished the card with sentiments from Hero Arts and jute twine from May Arts.
For this card, I Cuttlebug embossed swirls on the background panel, to begin with.
I then stamped and heat embossed and fussy cut two cups from
the Paper Smooches 'Cyber Cafe' stamp set. I placed the cups on a vellum panel on which I had heat embossed the heat swirls in white embossing powder. I then hand stitched the panel onto the card base. I added a gold heat embossed sentiment and some green Bakers Twine to finish the card.
I hope you enjoyed reading about these cards, and I hope you are inspired to create some of you own this season!
