I'm playing along with PTI's Make It Monday:

Emboss Resist Using Die Cuts

I used the Vertical Chevron plate to create my background. I then embossed it with white embossing powder and rubbed the following colors from top to bottom: Hibiscus Burst, Berry Sorbet, Raspberry Fizz and Pure Poppy.
I die cut out the Hello (from Wonderful Words Hello) in the card base then stacked four more beneath it (it's hard to see the hello but it is raised. Then I used the Initial Thoughts die and button stacks for the embellishments. I think I'll try a blue one next. Fun times.

Virginia's View Challenge was to do some Paper Piecing.

Paper Piecing is one of my favorite card making projects because the finished project is always so interesting and appreciated. I used Papertrey Ink's Doodlie Do stamp set and fussy cut all the petals. I cannot remember where I got the paper but usually choose a 6X6 pad and use various papers so they will coordinate.
