Technique Tuesday
Today's technique is using your Crop-a-Dile to dry emboss on your cards!
Can you see my 6 little dots on the bottom of my card?
I used my Crop-a-Dile to make them!
First take your Mat Pack to make a small mark where you want to
dry emboss. Next take your Crop-a-Dile and use the top part
that you set your Eyelets with and Place on your marks
and squeeze. There you go all done!! Super Easy!!
Have a Happy Stamping Day!!
Card Recipe
Stamp Set: True Friend, Stem Sayings
Card Stock: Chocolate Chip, Groovy Guava, DSPaper Afternoon Tea
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Groovy Guava
Accessories: Silver Brad, Crop-a Dile, Scalloped Punch

Casing a Card!
Today's card was cased from May's Cover of Stampin' Success.
This card was so easy to make. I used Sky Card Stock and DSPaper
Afternoon Tea. I stamped the swirl from "Priceless" Stamp set in Sky ink.
I also stamped Kind from "Baroque Motifs" Stamp Set in sky ink too.
I then used Die-Cut Blooms from the Occasions Mini Collection.
I love these die-cuts, they are so much fun! I hope they make it to the New
Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog!
I also used the Felt Flowers as an added bonus to this adorable card!
