    This kit looks like so much fun! Can hardly wait until tomorrow evening! Thanks MFT! I’m so glad that you’re all ok after ERMA and that although there’s lots of damage and sorrow, so many were spared so much! Still praying for relief and speedy recoveries.

    These are so pretty- love the color combo. Cut vellum behind the die cut is a great idea. Well done, Stephanie.

    Embossing technique and blend of colors give these cards a more sophisticated look. Like the tip on using the vellum backing for the sentiment.

    I just love this technique, and I watch it over and over then I try to do it and for some reason I can never get ALL the embossing Powder to stick everywhere? Their is ALWAYS a spot that will fall off every time?? Can you help me.. I always use the embossing pouch before I put the Versa Mark on I use good embossing Powder. So it make me just not do it. Could I actually be getting to much Versa Mark on the stamp?? Thank You Connie
