A lot is Happening on Fifth Avenue

Click on images to see a close up View

Fifth Avenue Floral, Central Park, Manhattan Textured Impressions, and Park Avenue.

What do all these products all have in common..? I can say, that, they SCREAM...Creative Versatility.

The large rose floral impressions were done using the Manhattan Texture Plate. If you have a Cuttlebug or the mighty Big Shot machine, this sturdy double-sided, folding plastic plate; embosses like a gem (in all machines).

The rose impression, on the black cardstock, was enhanced (by applying gentle pressure -with a direct to paper technique) using Stampin Up's White Craft Pad...I was really pleased with this effect.

The second card, (and I have to confess I went on a bender) and made fifty impressions using the all wonderful Stampin Up Cardstock Vellum..

I tried many coloring techniques; I found simply brayering ink across the backside of the vellum to work the best..

50?! You are one busy, and talented lady. Your cards are soooo beautiful. I have the impression that this embossing folder gives deeper lines than the CB one. I'm ordering it this month, so I'll be able to see in person.

Connie both of your cards are so pretty and you inspired me to take out my folder and try it out today I love how deeply it embosses on the vellum.
Thanks for sharing and the inspiration.
