Hello Friends! I hope that you have had a great start to July! We did, we went swimming at a friends pool, last weekend was a long weekend and we went to the cabin! Than both kids were struck with a sore tummy virus Ariel late last week and Carter this past week, he had it the worst and spent four days on the couch, which is most unlike him! After the worst night with him (lots of crying and loud! Telling us his tummy wants to be alone!)He woke up feeling so much better!
It's no secret that heat embossing is my favorite! I love it! I had a card idea in my head and it involved heat embossing onto dark cardstock but my embossing buddy was being no buddy of mine! What's a girl to do? Why not try cornstarch? So I brushed it onto the card and stamped and heat embossed and it look it turned out fabulous! The embossing buddy is getting lower on the priority list! See it works:

Ink: Versamark by Tsuneko
Twine by Doodlebug
White Embossing Powder by Hero Arts (the best white)
My next card is one that a friend asked for, she wanted a card for her daughter's teacher, a teacher appreciation and baby card! I may have been stumped! Teacher appreciation and a baby card and they don't know the gender? I was really pleased with myself and what I came up with!
I embraced the teacher appreciation with the sentiment, the alphabet background (white on kraft so it's subtle) and the notebook stamp and the small wooden clip! And I embraced the baby part with the giraffe and elephant! Sticking with a neutral color scheme worked well!
Stamps: Hero Arts: Notebook paper, Alphabet background, Many Thanks (A baby set by Papertrey Ink can't remember the name too lazy to look!)
Ink: Frost White by colorbox, Tide Pool, Bubble gum pink, cup of joe by Hero Arts
