Stampin’ Celebration is back with a new challenge for May. What a fun set of inspiration pictures, don’t you think? I just love all the bright happy colors!
I thought it would be fun to incorporate all the colors into a card using my circle punches and this cool technique. I have seen it called both embedded embossing and inlaid embossing, either seems appropriate. I used every circle punch I have to make this one and just randomly punched the awesome Summer Smooches DSP (available again on June 1st), then played around with the pattern. Once I attached them to a Whisper White layer they were run through my Big Shot using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. I let the one big circle hang over the edge for extra dimension. Then I attached the embossed layer to another Whisper White layer and tied it up with Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine. The twine goes really well with the Real Red in the DSP (and also with Cherry Cobbler, of course). I added some little tags using just part of a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes and the Jewelry Tag Punch. I popped the layer up on Dimensionals and it was done! I liked it so much that we made these at my Customer Appreciation Class last week. They loved it too. Perfect for kids and grown-ups alike!
I was so happy to see Stampin’ Celebration back from their break. Make sure you go visit and give this one a try. You have all month so there is no excuse!!

Loved your card! So bright and cheerful! May I inquire where you found the pictures you used for inspiration?
Wow, I love the clean look and bright colors on your card. And the baker’s twine was a perfect touch.
What a great card! I love the circle hanging over the edge – it really adds something to the whole card.
I love this design, Jennifer! It’s perfect for so many occasions and bright and happy too. I’ll be CASEing it for sure.
I love that you used all the colors from the inspiration picture in your embedded and embossed circles. All that texture is drool-worthy!
I love this fun, bright card! The texture is awesome, and I like how one of the circles hangs ‘off the edge’. Thanks so much for joining us at Stampin’ Celebration!
