All I want is you

Here's another wonderful stamp from Little Blue Button stamps.  This one is very Ooo La La for that card you want to give your significant other.  I love her.  I made this simple creation just for him.  I know we are already past Valentine's Day, but he really has been super supportive over the last several months as I have been looking for work and just so much stress.

Question of the day, do you use embossing folders?  do you use brass stencils?

well, I don't use the embossing folders because I have not the cuttle bag even.. But I wish I had one :) Because the cards are always so beautiful if you put the embossed papers on..

Like the embossing folder you used on this card and the pink/white combo. Nice job.
I use embossing folders. Also use all my brass stencils. I think embossing using brass stencils really makes a card elegant. I have over 200 of them.

Cara Malmrose said...

Very Ooo La La Holley. I am sure your husband will appreciate your card. Thanks for sharing!

Yes, I use embossing folders all the time ... best tool ever made in my opinion. I also have a ton a brass stencils which I only use rarely now but can't bring myself to give up!

Kathy said...

She's lovely, great coloring. I do use embossing folders, but I often forget I have them. I don't use the brass stencils anymore--I find them too messy.

Jean Chaney said...

I'm sure you can never give a loved one too many cards to let him know how you feel, Holley :)
I used 5 different embossing folders just this morning for a foiling flowers project. I have some brass stencils but I don't think I've ever actually used them.

SHartl said...

Oooh la la is right!! I love all the embossing and die cuts on your sassy card. I LOVE using embossing folders, and I have a few brass stencils but haven't used them much. I have a Christmas one that I used last year though, and should pull them out again.

Shell B. said...

Consuella Jackson said...

I think any day is a good day to tell someone you love them; with or without a heart.

Karenladd said...

I love embossing folders and actually finally broke down and bought my Big Shot just so I could use them. Embossed backgrounds give a nice bit of texture and pattern without being the focal point.

Christine Telega said...

Love the card. Great a always. I use embossing folders.

What a pretty card! Your attention to detail when coloring the image is amazing. I love to use embossing folders - they bring such nice dimension to a card. I've seen how-to's on inking them first, but haven't tried that.

Melody S. said...

I love this image! And pink!
I do use embossing folders. I love all that texture! I have a few brass stencils, but I don't really know how to use them. I should learn huh?

Such a lovely card. I like the embossed background and how pink stands out from all the whiteness. I'm sure our hubby loved this card. It's great that he's been so supportive.
To answer your question ... Yes, I use embossing folders quite a lot. I like them.

KT Fit Kitty said...

What a beautiful card for your hubby! Such a gorgeous image - I bet he loved this! My hubby doesn't mind pink cards either, and he gets a lot of them since it's my favourite colour! Love the embossing and the border down the side! As for embossing folders, that's a big YES! I love them and use them all the time. I went through a stage when I wasn't using them as much but now I seem to be using them more than ever. As for brass stencils, not so much. I have a few in my stash that I haven't tried yet. I favour the 6x6 plastic stencils of patterns.

Pat said...

I love embossing folders and use brass stencils often! I usually forget about embossing my papers until I am done my cards but then I will emboss a bunch of cardstock so I have them for the next time!
