Emboss and Color in One Step

I have a funny story to tell you. At the Lily Ink Pad retreat, I was the first to bed. No surprise to me as I go to bed early and like to get up early. However, while I was sleeping, my Stampin' Up! Demonstrator friend used a technique with MY embossing folder that wow'd two of my stampers who come to my Green Bay Events. One being my sister. When I woke up the next day, and hadn't even had my second cup of coffee yet, they attacked. They wanted to make a card with that technique. I thought we had. I'd done the technique before. Unfortunately, it was with a different group of stampers! So, I knew I had to create a fall card with the Embossing and Color Technique first introduced to me by my stampin' friend Cindy Elam.

Stamps: Petite Pairs (on the inside)
Paper: Rich Razzleberry, Gumball Green, Whisper White, Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Gumball Green, and Daffodil Delight Markers
Accessories: Big Shot, Flower Garden Embossing Folder, Gumball Green Stitched Ribbon, Itty Bitty Punch Pack, Postage Stamp Punch, 1" Punch

I made two designs because I experimented with coloring different parts. I colored the ridges on the one on the left (above and right below) and holes on the one on the right (above and left below). Both create an interesting look.

 For the bow, I punched a hole with the  Itty Bitty Flower punch. I wrapped a piece of ribbon over a 2" piece of ribbon and taped the ends inside. The Itty Bitty Flower punch shows and makes a cute little accent.

Which do you prefer?

 Happy Stamping!
