Hello everyone, Livia here with
This months theme "Thankful"


This project was fun to put together, I'm very
Happy with the outcome, 
I'm in love with the neutral colors, and the 
Embossing just gives it that little extra shine,
Here are my steps:
First I stamped a swirl with versa mark and embossed 
It with Burnt copper leaves, Canadian Maple and
Just Java in the right bottom corner 
Second I embossed the letters in Thankful and the
Arrow with Burnt Copper Leaves 




Thirdly I arranged my flowers and embellishments 
To where I wanted them and adhered everything
My final step I used versa mark around the edges
And embossed using Burnt Copper Leaves, Canadian Maple 
And Just Java Also if you notice the pumpkins also have
A little embossing too.
I will list the EC products used below
Thanks for viewing ❤

Stephanie here to share with you My Thankful project with you. I wanted to go a little outside the box with this one. I made a mixed media tag featuring one thing I am truly thankful for... COFFEE!! I know there are others out there that are with me on this one.


The Blend Stamp designed by Pam Bray Designs by Emerald Creek was  the inspiration for my tag. To keep with the coffee theme I stamped the images with coffee Archival Ink and sprinkled Just Java Aroma embossing powder. Oh my it smells delightfully yummy!

I wanted to give the mason jar an antique glass feel and Vintage Beeswax was the perfect Embossing Powder choice.

I colored the coffee beans, jar label and wooden table with alcohol markers in the shades coffee bean and soft brown



To continue my thankfulness for coffee I painted my tag with latte themed watercolors. I spritzed the tag with water and randomly applied colors.





I wanted to add a lil interest to the tags. I flicked the alcohol marker brush tip in its own cap. Quick and easy way to add some visual texture.


Next I inked the edges of the tag.


Add some dimensional foam tape on the back to lift the stamped image up a bit.


Apply coffee bean jar to the painted tag. Only thing left to do is add some coordinating fibers and tie on the jar lid with My thankful for coffee quote. The tag is perfect to add to a gift for your favorite coffee fiend and book lover.

Hello! Karla here today with a Thanksgiving scrapbook layout and process video for this month's Thankful Challenge! I have so many things to be thankful for, but one of the most important thing is my family, so I decided to share a layout using photos from our Thanksgiving Dinner, which was in October since I live in Canada. I went with a non-traditional colour scheme (for me anyways!) and really love how this turned out. After you check out all the closeup pics you'll see a link to a video where you can see the full process.


I used some of the wonderful aromatic Black Cherry embossing powder to emboss stitched lines around the border of my layout. The texture actually creates a stitched look, and it smells amazing!


This Vintage Time Piece stamp by Emerald Creek is one of my favourites! Be sure to check out the video below where you can see how I created a painted background and then embossed over top for a custom look.


I even coordinated a flower I found in my stash with inks and powders - so many possibilities!


I really love how these leaves turned out stamped with the Emerald Creek Maple Leaf Stamp - the Dragon's Egg and Patina Oxide powders look gorgeous together.


Here's the Process Video where you can see exactly how I created this layout as well as some tricks and tips!



Thanks so much for stopping by! I can't wait to see what you come up with for the Thankful Challenge, and hope you have an awesome week ahead!!

Hugs,
Karla

Hello everyone, this month's theme is "thankful" and I associate that with the Fall, change of seasons and overall the start of a cozy season with hot drinks, fireplaces and a lot of laughter.
I decided to use some of the smaller stamps from Emerald Creek to create an inspirational ATC chain. ATC stands for Artist Trading Coin, in this case. Yes, I got caught in that trend as well :)

Want to see how I put together my very first set of Artist Trading Coins? Here is the step-by-step tutorial. Enjoy!
I hope you enjoyed my quick video. Have you created Artist Trading Coins before? If not, why don't you create some for this month's Emerald Creek dares challenge?

Hello friends!
I want to say how thankful I am for each and everyone of you, for friends and family and the opportunities life has brought to me.
This month I wanted to create an art panel using Fall colors. Fall is always a busy season but full of seasonal fun and frolics.

I am in love with the newest embossing powders and chose to use the new Dragons Egg in the above project. Here is the video process.


I hope you all have a great month and join in the dare. ttfn

In The Night... by Stephanie

Stephanie 

Hello again, Stephanie here! I’m so excited that it’s finally getting cooler here in the south. With cool weather and falling leaves comes my favorite time of year... HALLOWEEN! My project for the “In the Night” is a creepy, fun wall hanging that depicts a Halloween nighttime scene. Look at all those yummy embossed bits!




With this piece I decided to cover it entirely with Emerald Creek Embossing Powders. Full list and links at the bottom. I base coated the piece with acrylic paints including a few Paper Artsy acrylics.



I used an Embossing pen to color the area I wanted to emboss because it’s such and intricate design and multiple layers. I worked from front to back as to not mess up the layers as they are embossed. Tangerine Sparkle is the perfect shade and texture for the jack o’lanterns


The Raven definitely needed Salted Raven Enamel Embossing Powder. On the cross I chose to use Dirty Sand Baked Texture and the tombstone looks eerily awesome in Gunmetal (honestly one of my absolute favorites!) I chose to add some Just Java Aroma to the cross later.



The bats at the top are covered with Onyx Frost and the bats on the right are adorned with Slicked Smoke. Mardi Gras on the pumpkin stems.

I decided the bats needed a lil more color so I layered Dragons Egg on the top bats and Midnight Magic on the right. I really love how well the embossing powders worked together! Also added a base coat of black paint to the rim. Next I used the embossing stamp pad over a stencil and embossed with Gunmetal. Chic Camo embossing powder covers the creepy tree.


I felt the piece still needed a little something and added a ghost and scaredy cat wood cut out. The ghost is covered in Silver Sparkle and the scaredy cat is Slicked Smoke and Vintage Beeswax.


Purple lights around the sparkly ghost.



To finish the wall decor I added some tulle poufs to the top and Cut out a circle of scrapbook paper I have in my stash that has creepy monster eyes. Below are a few images before and after the paper backing was added.








I hope you enjoyed my project this week! This can be done with any wooden decor no matter the theme! I had so much fun working on this!
