It's Spring!!!

Today's Friday Mashup challenge is all about Spring. It is sure is looking like spring around here. My weeping cherry is all blossomed out and the daffodils are popping through everywhere!

Here is today's challenge.

Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  1. Create a project using the "Scattered Embossing Technique".
  2. Create a project with "Spring Colors or a Theme".
  3. Or Mash it up and create a "Spring project with the Scattered Embossing Technique".

As I looked at the challenge, I thought, the Scattered Embossing Technique sounded really cool. I watched a video on it, (just type "scattered embossing" on Youtube). I then decided to try it out with Chevron embossing folder. Unfortunately, things didn't turn out so well for me sooooooo, I ended just making my card look Springy!

Here it is!

I guess you could say that I cheated a little. My embossing shows up in the gold polka dots. Now here's a little tip. The first time I used some of this polka dot paper, my snail showed right through it. This time I was smart and just put snail behind the polka dots. It worked out great!!

Also, the flowers I made where pretty simple. Just take any size of circle punch you like and punch it out. Next take the triangle punch ( available in the Occasions catalog) and stick the circle into the corner to "knick" out the side. Do this several times around the circle. It's a fun little technique!

Well I hope you enjoyed today's card. Take a moment to head over to the Friday Mashup and see what the other Design Team members have created!!

Happy Stamping!


  1. A bouquet of spring posies with a bit of bling- great designed card, Lynda. TFS!

  2. Very cool technique with the flowers, I need to remember that! Love how you used the DSP for the flowers also.

  3. Super cute card Lynda.

    I also tried scattered embossing with vellum and I didn't like the look. I tried many different embossing folders before I ended up using the dotted embossing folder. I think scattered embossing might look better with cardstock with the chevron embossing folder.
