Don't know why I couldn't sign into my Blogger account, but I'm finally back in!
I have been playing around with my embossing folders lately, which have been sorely neglected. I've used a few in my card-making, but I feel like I'm not doing them justice. So when I came across some flat, silver and gold sequins at Michael's, $1.99 for a package of a gazillion, I wondered if I could run them through my Vagabond. Would they crumble under the pressure?
To my pleasant surprise, it worked! I tried just about every embossing folder I own, it was so much fun!
A few days later I wondered if alcohol inks would work on them. Another success!
Aren't they fabulous?! I love how differently the colors look on the gold as opposed to the silver, and how much they look like metal.
I went back to Michael's for more (you know, in case they quit making them, ahem), and came across some good-sized hearts, so I bought a packet. The embossing worked great on them as well!
Now I'm on a kick of embossing everything I can think of that's flat enough to glide through my Vagabond. I did some small clear bags and was very pleased with them. They're difficult to photograph, but I'll see what I can do about that and throw some photos on here.
Thank you for taking the time to stop by! I post things I craft or make in the kitchen and sometimes talk about my family. I'm the mom of identical twin daughters who are all grown up now, and I've been married for almost 40 years. My life isn't very exciting, but I like it that way. Whether you are a subscriber or not, I hope I've shared something you can relate to and feel at home here in my little house out back.
