Diffuse Your Artwork

Welcome to the Technique Blog Hop
Brought to you by
 Close to My Heart Independent Consultants 

 You've arrived here from Darlys' blog be assured you'll see all the artwork if you keep on hopping.  The featured technique this month is on the new embossing diffusers.  These are very cool and simple to use.  This is the first time I've used these since they arrived, so be gentle.  

I made a card, a Christmas card, I seemed to be hooked on making Christmas cards lately.  I love Christmas stamps and paper, which are the items I hoard in my stash. :)  

I liked how this turned out.  The diffuser gives the card a dimensional look without all the work.  I used traditional Christmas colors. The folder I chose is the new Snow folder and I brushed the Fern cardstock with some White Daisy pigment ink trying to get a snowy appearance.  

Items I used with this card.

  • Card Base:  Colonial White value pack
  • Cardstock:  Colonial White & Fern
  • Exclusive Inks:  Cocoa, Cranberry, Fern, New England Ivy, & White Daisy Pigment
  • Shimmer Trim:  Red
  • Other sourced gold ribbon.
Thank You for taking the time to view the hop.  On the 15th of each month a new technique is featured, so mark your calendar.  It's time to hop on to Catherine's blog to see her art.  

Create from the Heart,


  1. Beautiful! I love the way this turned out.

  2. Love it! What a great idea with the trees. I would love to lift your idea!

  3. Like how you used the folder "upside down" to give the appearance of falling snow.


Thanks for the Love!
