Good morning lovelies, it a crisp December morning here on the lovely fens, and it is beautiful. I often forget how lucky I am to live in such a beautiful area, my hip has been giving me some problems this week, but I don't mind because the huge plus is it means I am up really early, we have french doors in our kitchen and a beautiful view the sunrise each morning, it always makes me smile :) 
Anyone on to some samples I have made for some fab embossing folders by Darice, It will be on your screens on Monday 8th Decemeber on Create and Craft, there is some brilliant versatile folders on the show so make sure you catch it if you can. If you can't catch the show then head on over to Crafter's Companion Website to see the full range

I used the Chevron folder for this card and went with a mono theme, after embossing I rubbed my Staz on ink pad over the top and then using a silver pen i coloured in the debossed sections, I then added some seam binding, nice quick card for both male and female. 

I used the Circles folder for this card and went for something different, I die cut some circles and then embossed them using the folder, i then used gilding wax and gold pen (my gilding wax run out half way through!) to highlight the embossed detail, i then added some twine, a sentiment and distressed the card. 

This one was using the chevron folder and i embossed 3 different colours of Core'dinations card and then cut out 2 sections from each colour and glued them together on the card, i then sanded over the embossed detail and added a sentiment...really like how this turned out. 

Items used: 
Seam Binding 
Both Sentiment Stamps are from issue 4 and 5 of Crafter's Companion Crafter's Inspiration Magazine. 

I hope you are all having a nice weekend and managing some crafting. 
Happy Crafting
