Sept SOTM Sneak Peek

I'm getting ready for my team meeting next week, so my table is filled with September SOTM right now. I wanted to something with heat embossing, so as I was browsing through the CASE Study Blog Hop I was excited to come across Heather's pretty embossed card. Here's my take on Heather's card, so I can link up to the CASE Study Anniversary hop!
I used the new Chalk It Up papers, which were a perfect fit for the Color Throwdown combo this week. I used the sketch over at Freshly Made to define my layers. I used B&T for the base just like Heather, but I chose a bright Sorbet for my card base and embossed it with the cute new Arrows Embossing Folder. I wrapped the card base in Lagoon Hearts Washi tape.
Since I didn't have watercolors at hand, I grabbed sponges instead. I heat embossed the tree using White Daisy Ink and Clear embossing powder. Then I sponged in rings using Sorbet, Sweet Leaf, Lagoon, and Slate Inks to get the watercolored look the Heather had in her card. I stamped the banner sentiment from Lifetime of Happiness (which might just be my favorite set right now) in Slate, cut it out, and popped it up with 3-D Foam Tape. I hope my team likes this as much as I do when we make it at our meeting!
