TTCRD Happy Holiday Blog Hop!

Hello Everybody,

We have our first ever Blog Hop with Through the Craftroom Door and we have lots of prizes to give away!!  Be sure to stop by for a  chance to win a one year subscription to the best online magazine Through the Craftroom Door.

Start with TTCRD Challenge Blog, leave a comment and hop to the next one on the list. You must leave a comment on each blog to be eligible. If you also become a follower you double your chances at the prize!

Many of us also have some blog candy to giveaway so get hopping and check it out!

When you reach the last one on the list (TTCRD) leave a comment in the inlinkz.
I have created a little tutorial on how to make your embossed images pop off the page!

Things you will need:

Step One: Pick a die cut that you would like to cut out!

Step Two: Place your die cut in your chosen embossing folder!

You could stop here if you wanted to but your raised pattern is not as pronounced as it could be!
Step Three: Ink up your brayer and roll it all over your diecut and it will add ink to all the raised areas giving it a little more of a pop to your paper!

Voila! Now you can see the dimension in your paper! It's ready to put on your card!

Thanks for joining us in our Blog Hop, next you can skip on over to
 Penny's Blog

Kite Play!

Hi Everyone,

Thank Goodness it's Friday!! We have pulled the kids from school today so we could miss the thanksgiving traffic and come up to the cottage last night.  The colours up here are just gorgeous!  Fall is my favourite time of year!!  This leads me into our new challenge over at the Outlawz in our Copic Challenge Group , Fall activities!!  Here is my card to help get the creative juices going:

I have entered it in the following challenges:
CMC Challenge Group - Bright Colours

It just occurred to me that although my activity is done in the fall, the colours I have used are really spring. oops! I loved the kite dp paper so much that it blew me away! (ah ha ha ha!)  I had fun with my cameo again, geez I love that thing!! The image is by this month's sponsor Make it Crafty.

They have some fabulous digital stamps! You can find their shop here.  One randomly-chosen participant in this month's challenges will win Zoe's awesome new E-Book "Colouring Techniques With Markers"!  A great guide full of helpful tips to using your copics!!
