ESAD Holiday Catalogue 2018

Hello and welcome to another wonderful ESAD hop. 
You are currently here with me Kim Oliver- KOCreations Cards. You have most likely arrived from this clever ladies blog - Lou Kitzelmen

Today we are focusing our creative abilities on some of the stunning products now available in the just released 2018 Holiday Catalogue.
 I have a button further down for you to continue moving through to the next lovely designer in the hop when you have finished looking here. 

I have chosen to use an Embossing Folder that I fell in love with as soon as I saw it in the 2018 Holiday Catalogue and has now become a fast favourite and a go to for my backgrounds and elements.

 'Tin Tile' Dynamic TIEF

It's called the 'Tin Tile' Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF)
I have paired this with a stamp set from the Annual Catty called 'Country Lane'.

Here is my project

Happy Birthday

Just look at all of that texture!
The Embossing folder creates an amazing background piece. I used the folder on a piece of Crumb Cake card stock and then did a little distressing work using some new Shimmer Paint (found on page 38). I have used 'Frost White' (#147046) and applied it with a Sponge Dauber. I then rubbed Memento Tuxedo Black Ink over the top with another Sponge Dauber to grunge it up and add character. I curled the opposing edges and glued to the 'Thick Whisper White' card base.
