Fresh Idea Friday - Clear Embossing

Happy Friday Everyone!!

Maria here today...I get to bring you this week's Fresh Idea post.

I can't lie....I had NO IDEA what to do for today's post. My schedule has been all out of whack since the kids have been out of school and my craft time has been very sporadic. To say the mojo was gone :(

I have a few ways to jumpstart my creativity:
1. My favorite color combo :)
2. Try something new (or at least something I don't do often)
It's been forever since I used my heat gun so I decided to do a little heat embossing. I stamped the branches from
{Where You Should Be}
and embossed them with clear embossing powder along the right side of my card.
There are a lot of great {ippity} images for this!!
Since the design was so pretty I didn't want to take away from it so I attempted a CAS (Clean and Simple) card....another style I don't do often. The Lisa's are AMAZING at CAS designs and I am always inspired to try it.
I don't think my design is quite as stunning as theirs are but it DID spark my mojo and I have been crafting ever since :)

~Stillness allows us to hold all possibilities.~
