Embossed Elements: Cloudy Sky + a GIVEAWAY



Hi, everybody! I'm coming to you today with the June edition of my monthly Embossed Elements feature for the DeNami blog. Today I'm featuring a truly versatile item: the Cloudy Sky Embossing Folder from the DeNami store. There are just so many different ways to use this awesome design!

My first card is a sweet all-purpose card. It uses just one DeNami stamp (Noah's Ark), and two embossing folders: Cloudy Sky and Beach Waves. I think this would be so cute as a baby card, a baby's first birthday card, or even a thank you note for a Sunday School teacher!


My second card is perfect for the 4th of July! I again used the Cloudy Sky embossing folder as a backdrop, this time for an outdoor celebratory scene featuring Chickie in Balloon, Chickie w/ Sparkler, and Patriotic Chickie. The sentiment comes from the Everyday Greetings stamp set.


I hope this gives you some ideas you can use with the Cloudy Sky embossing folder! Thanks for taking a peek at my embossed projects today. Be sure to check out my giveaway!



How would you like the chance to win this Cloudy Sky Embossing Folder? I have one up for grabs in an Embossed Elements giveaway! Want to be in the running? Just leave me a comment on this post using the word "CLOUDS." There's no need to be a follower of my blog to enter, but if you are a follower (or become a new follower!), you can have a second entry in the drawing--just leave me a second comment telling me that you are a follower and how you follow. :)

I'll leave commenting open until 11:59 p.m. EST on Wednesday, June 25, 2014, and will draw one commenter at random. The winner will be announced right here on my blog on Thursday, June 26, and if I'm able to find an email address, I'll be sure to contact the winner as well.

Thanks for joining me today!
Emily

Good Morning Emily and what a great way to start off the week by admiring some of your beautiful creations.
Your little ark of critters floating on the waves is just precious. I like how you combined the two folders to create the scene.
And the little balloons among the clouds and the very patriotic little chickies on the ground are all adorable.
Thanks for sharing and hope you are ready for a great summer! It will be gone before we know it

Emily, your Noah's ark card has planted a mega-watt smile on my face! I have several Noah's Ark themed items in my home, including several cross-stitches that I made years ago, as well as other 'ornaments', tea-towels, small framed images. Years ago, I also had an Ark, made by a friend, surrounded by pairs of little animals. I gave it away....sighhh. I still have to finish the 'birth sampler' for my nephew and guess what: Noah's ark image (it is soooo stinkin' cute!!) Your second card is a delight; those little chicks are darling. Today, despite the rain and clouds, you've brought me sunshine. Love the Noah image x a zillion! Hugs~c
