Video: Happy Sparkly Birthday Cupcake!

Today’s technique for Scrapbook Boutique is a simple one, embossing with dies.  And what better die to choose than a Wonky stitched one from MFT!  I decided to film as I created so you can watch the process.

You can see my video here or Watch it in HD at Youtube.

  1. So adorable, Therese! I love your embossed frame, all the lovely shimmer on the cupcake, and how you added dimension with your pencils! So cute!!!

  2. Very fun little images you put together here! I like your debossed die! I am so surprised how well the white embossing powder shows on the light grey card. I am in the market for a new white powder, and I might try this one, I think you have used it several times. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Cute card. I sure liked watching you emboss the frame–brilliant. Also, you intrigue me with your pencil art, I’m never sure where to use it. Thank you.

  4. So cute and that wonky die is perfect for this technique. Guess what – my Altenew order arrived – sooooo excited to play! Have fun up north. xx

  5. A very effective technique, and one I should try to use more often:) Love the simplicity of this design, but the result is so darn cute!

  6. Love that shimmer, like Wink on speed! 🙂
    BTW…your link to SBB Smooth White Cardstock doesn’t ..and I have trouble finding it at the store…Di xx

  7. I’ll have to see if I still have my rubbery pad…I love the way this card looks, Therese! Those wonky frames and sweet stamps are adorable. The white embossed sentiment is just right; it doesn’t take away from your central design. Another great video!

  8. That debossing is such a great way to showcase your sweet shimmery cupcake, Therese … think I need a silicone mat! Lovely as ever to watch you work! Hugs, Anita 🙂

  9. Nearly missed this being at mum and dads, love how you have done this card, must try this embossing with die cuts idea. Love your little cupcake and bunny.

  10. Yup. Those wonky stitches make awesome embossed frames! Love your soft coloring on the images too.
