Embossed Pop up Box

Good morning and Happy Choosday everyone. Before I get onto my make I want to remind you that we are looking for some people to join us for a few GDT slots so go over to the blog to see how to apply. Also don't forget to go grab this weeks discount code as it only lasts 24 hours!
This week our challenge is "Use Some Embossing" It can be either dry or heat embossing, it's totally up to you. I chose to use an embossing folder to create my embossing and here is my make.


I have used a pre coloured image, embellies, word art and a sentiment all from the fabulous Work and Play 10 download collection. You can buy this as a CD should you wish, and also in smaller download collections. And should you wish to buy the image on it's own you can. The embossing folder is from Tattered Lace.

Tag it!

Good morning and Happy Choosday everyone. 
We have a new challenge for you over at the Digi Choosday blog today and that challenge it to use a tag. You can make a tag, or you can make a tag shaped card, or you can make a card with a tag on it, anything at all as long as a tag features somewhere on your make. Here is my make for this week.
I have made the tag out of some Kraft card and then the papers, embellies and sentiments are all from the fabulous Picknix 2 Gingerbread Twist collection. I have used the Tea Dye distress ink to darken the edges of everything and added some faux stitching onto the papers. The 2 Picknix collections are available as smaller downloads and some even as physical paper stacks, which are so strokeable! You can find them all HERE. The die cut Poinsettia is a Tattered Lace Trio die from the latest Tattered Lace magazine.

Now don't forget to pop over to the team blog for more inspiration, todays discount code, and some news! We are looking for some guest designers to join us for a few weeks. All you have to do is enter this weeks challenge and add GDT to your name in the link up. It's a fabulous team to be a part of, so if you love Nikky's work then give it a go!
