Tattered Lace - Loop Set Border Embossing Folders

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How has your week been? We have had an exciting holiday and an engagement. We are now trying to get back to normal and catch up with lots of things. I am so glad that I have a few days before I need to go back to work.

Just before I went on holiday I was sent the Loop Set of four Border Embossing Folders and a cutting edge die by Tattered Lace. I made four samples for them as I didn't have much time.


I cut the embossing strips into squares the image that is left reminds me of the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth. I used white core card that I sanded back and then inked I think I even added gilding wax which I have just fallen in love with. 


For this card I used the edge die and one of the embossing folders to make a petticoat effect. 


I simply used embossed strips for this card and I added a big flower. 


The left over bits I used to make this tag. 

I said I would share some of my Iceland pictures the scenery was stunning and all covered in snow. 


This was the view across the water in Reykjavik. 


This is the Geysir that shoots steam into the air every 5 - 8 minutes.  


This is the Gullfoss waterfall partially frozen. We are planning a trip back one summer as the countryside would look so different then and we would have a better chance of seeing the whales which we didn't see this time. 


I have no idea if these samples were shown on television as we were away. They did appear briefly in the Tattered Lace gallery online. 

Enjoy your weekend. I need to make an engagement card I know just what to do. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
