Hey all, popping in with a quick post for the latest Make It Monday over at Papertrey Ink. This week the challenge was all about using your dies to emboss an image onto your paper and then coloring in the images.

My cards started with the Cover Plates Heart Die and then the images were painted in with Distress Inks.

The sentiment was cut using the die from Wonderful Words: Hello. I adhered a strip of ScorTape to the top of a piece of True Black cardstock before cutting out the word. Once cut I took off the release paper and sprinkled it with glitter. Popped the word up on the card front with foam tape.

Distress Inks: Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Squeezed Lemonade, Mowed Grass, Salty Ocean, Seedless Preserves
