WOYWW #194, embedded embossing, paper lace and a completed Kanban card!

Hello, all you wonderful people! :) It's that time of the week again, what's on your workdesk, Wednesday and thanks to Julia over at Stamping Ground you can see all sorts of crafty spaces from all over the world. Go check it out if you don't know what I'm talking about, and if you have a crafty space(desk, floor, kitchen table or counter) please consider joining in and sharing it. It's more fun than you can imagine and you will meet the nicest people here. :) If I were to tell you how nice these people are it would triple the length of this post so I can't tell you here but go join in the fun and see for yourself, won't you? :)
I have a few pics to share this week. First the requisite desk shot:
I've been trying a few new things this week. Paper lace made with punch sets I own:
Embossing flowers pasted onto cream cardstock=embedded embossing. A pretty cool technique I, of course, knew nothing about! Can't wait to make a card featuring this panel. I saw both the tech above and this one on a ladies website, her name is Carla and here is a link to her page of tutorials.
This is my first completed, I think, card of my newest set of Kanban Vivienne stamps! I had so much fun coloring these dresses and I wish my picture showed them off better. I dyed the rose ribbon to perfectly match the worn lipstick shade in both dresses but I don't think you can really tell. Anyways, I love how the projects are turning out with these stamps. And their quality is top notch! My archival ink isn't even staining the backs of these stamps, like it does every other stamp I own...is that unusual?
Anyways, thanks for stopping by and please leave a comment if you care to, but absolutely have yourself a marvelous day, fill it with wonder and joy and laughter and love! :)

    So kind of you.

    Happy Crafting

  6. great looking desk as usual! Love the card. Thanks for the link to Carla's blog. I used to have it but...I seem to lose things like that. A lot of people are into the people and clothing stamps but I haven't quite made it there yet. Its like the Gelli Plates...I am not quite sure of that one yet either. Have a great week and stay warm.

  8. Embedded Embossing interesting, must give it a go. Love the Kanban stamps but most of all what are those awesome background stamps on your desk? they are brilliant.

    Happy WOYWW

    1. Those are the Tim Holtz ones that I had to have because of the top one, with the honeycomb, I was dying to get! I was having the hardest time getting a simple large honeycomb background stamp and when I found this set I didn't want to pay $13 for it but I did...all for that one stamp! But I did figure I can and would use the others, eventually, so it was more of an investment than a, "I really want that whole set" thing(like how I felt about the Kanban sets). They are big and versatile, after all. So a little brilliant. :) I think you would have fun with the embedded embossing...lots of possibilities! :)

  14. Hi, I didn't make WOYWW this week, so I'm enjoying seeing your so-tidy desk. Loved your paper lace made with all your border punches. (something I keep promising self to do & haven't!) Absolutely pleased to see your embossing project...another technique to try, and thanks for the idea. Also thanks for the link to the videos. (I learn visually more than by written stuff...). Your Kanban project is so feminine & pretty. Those stamps are a new product to me. I've seen some of the paper 'sets', but didn't know there were stamps too. And if the rubber isn't staining...Woo Hoo. Big plus. Thanks for sharing all the knowledge. Hugs.

    I recently tried the embedded embossing technique, it's a great look, can I ask which embossing folder you used its lovely and that Harlequin style ribbon is beautiful.

    1. Thanks! I used a gears and clock faces folder made by Provocraft and labeled for Cuttlebug, though I use it on a BigShot. Hope that helps. :)
