CCEE Challenge 11-01-2012 - Embedded Flowers

Our CCEE Stampers challenge hostess this month is Vicky Gould - one of the very talented members of CCEE's DT!  Vicky's challenge for today is to use the embedded flower technique.  I have to say, my flowers didn't embed well even though I shimmed up my EF.  And, the fact that two of the flowers are polka dot doesn't help show the embedding of the EF very well.  But I will give this a try again!  If you'd like to give this technique a try, drop your card into Mr. Linky for everyone to enjoy at the CCEE Stampers blog!

Card Recipe:

Stamp:  SU Nature Walk and SU Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper:  SU Bashful Blue and SU Night of Navy
Ink:  SU Night of Navy
Accessories:  Flowers from stash; SU Ribbon and SU pearls

Be sure and check out the wonderful cards of the DT over at CCEE for some awesome inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by - later gator!


  1. Very pretty, Kathy. My first try didn't work either. No sure why. I love that bird.

  2. Love your birdie sitting on the ribbon!

  3. I do love all the blue.....and have kicked myself for not getting this set.

  4. it's a lovely card Kathy.

    greetings karin

  5. the blue is fabbo and that birdie looks quite content sitting on the ribbon

  6. This is so pretty, I love the blue and the addition of the bird.

  7. Very pretty, Kathy. I do like that bird perched on the ribbon. I'd have to say that I think a folder with more texture does work better with this technique, BUT conversely, a more textured one means the flowers stand out less because they're more smashed into the background. It's a swings and roundabouts situation, I think...both look good, just different.

  8. This is beautiful Kathy. I love the embossing and how it goes so well with the polka dotted flowers.
