a•muse friends Blog Hop!

Welcome to our blog hop hosted by Sunghee! Be sure to visit her site after leaving a comment on each post for a chance to win her blog hop candy!

Card Details: a•muse studio: Beautiful Botanicals 2, Satin Pearl embossing powder, green cardstock, embossing buddy, corner chomper: others: ribbon, Basic Grey DP, DCWV maroon cardstock, ribbon.

Look at those richly embossed leaves! (Sorry, I took the photo at night so it's a bit dark) Can you believe this is the Satin Pearl embossing powder from a•s? On dark papers it comes out silver and on light papers it's a true, beautiful pearl color! I use it often but I suggest you test it out on a scrap if you are worried about which way it will emboss...I tend to just go with the flow...tee hee.

I've been trying to use up some of my papers that I've been hoarding for years and it feels good! I think this economy is starting to weigh us all down and is making me stop and think a bit before I buy like crazy. I like that a•muse studio has sampler paper packs and that I can buy those instead of 25 sheets of just one color -- although if I really like a color, I will! :)

So now begins the hopping!
