Embellishments with Lizzy

Hey there, OTR friends! Lizzy here today.
I thought today I'd share with you a few embellishments I've been creating, based
on a pile of You Tube videos that I've been watching.
Mostly they feature gold. I'm taken with gold atm!
And these are great for the Pocket Letters, File Folders and Flip Books I'm currently
OBSESSED with making!
Enough talk;)
Punch or die cut any shape you chose. Use washi tape to cover the bits you do NOT
want to heat emboss.
Dip into your choice of embossing powder. Naturally, I've chosen GOLD;)
Heat emboss, then remove washi. Actually, sometimes I remove the washi
BEFORE I heat emboss.
Entirely up to you!
And repeat!!!!!
Then get creative.
Another idea. Punch or die cut hearts or butterflies in glitter paper, and normal cardstock/patterned paper. Cut the glitter ones in 1/2 then layer onto the other side of your shapes:
 Chunky glitter works a treat. I actually made my own glitter paper...
 Finer glitter for the hearts...
Die cut tags. This time I 'experimented' with off centre and diagonal cuts.

Like I say, be imaginative. Experiment. Have FUN!
Hope you get some inspiration from these ideas ~ Happy Scrapping!

  4. I have been watching all those videos too... I am determined to not buy more paper... pffft .... until it comes out then I get FOMO (fear of missing out). great ideas now I just have to stop watching the videos and actually make something. I love that you recycle so much ... you are a HUGE inspiration to me Lizzy <3
