Just a quick and simple little card today.
I wanted to play with the new embossing paste, and this was my first attempt!
I was inspired by Nance’s sketch at The Paper Players Sketch # 350.
I added Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to the paste after I put in on the card- maybe a little too much glitter….
it looks like it is our Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper, huh?
The Embossing Paste is so easy to use! Here is a SU video showcasing how to add Embossing Paste to your cards:

Hey there! I finally got around to playing with Monika’s sketch at
Creating Pretty Cards Challenge #72 at Craft Project Central.
I have to say it has a lot of elements but in the end, it all came together:)
I used the SU Oh So Eclectic Bundle to create the focal point and used up some scraps of Color Theory DSP.
I loved how the solid flower stamp goes beyond the lined image stamp of the flower –
no white outline when die cut. See what I mean? Nice touch, I think.
I only used a simple stamp and die on this card but there are some other REALLY cool things in the bundle!!!
Take a few minutes hear what Shannon West from the SU office has to say about the Oh So Eclectic Bundle:
