EIO Design Team Gallery Sneek Peek!


The Embellish-Online Design Team Gallery opens on the 5th, and this month I got to pick the theme.....Fellas and Fall! Sometimes it is a little challenging to design for the fellas in our lives, but I have to say that I really enjoy making masculine cards once I get in the groove! For lots of masculine inspiration, be sure to stop by on the 5th and take a look-see!
This card features tea bag folding using a Tea Bag Folding Cube from Impression-Obsession.
This is far easier than it looks....fold up 8 squares and ta-da...a fun medallion. I LOVE the Cuttlebug embossing folders.....branches and brocade. The corner punches and black cardstock are by SU! Brown cardstock is Core-dinations and is from the Coffee Cafe' collection. This looks really fun when sanded a bit. I inked the corner punches after they were embossed. The ornate brad is by Making Memories. I'd tell you who made the Celebrate stamp if it wasn't lost in the rumble of my desk at the moment!!

Very cool folding-I haven't done that in years- you have inspired me to drag my book out on it and try again!

WOW, this is wonderful. Don't you just love tea bag folding. I wondered if those cubes did a good job stamping. Looks like they do, I will have to add them to my ever growing with list ;)
