All Puffed Up...

It's been too long since I have posted but we are in strange times.
I have so enjoyed keeping up with your fabulous posts, commenting 
and learning from your wonderful and amazing creativity....
Today's cards have been inspired by CAS Mix Up Challenge....

Today's Cards.....

Twofer is asking for Circles or Bubbles, so I have used a circle die for both cards.
My Seahorse card has been inspired by the CAS Mix Up Challenge, 
which is to use embossed vellum.
I have stamped and heat embossed onto vellum the little squares 
and onto the seahorse with Lindy Embossing powders, which are so very pretty.
On the back of the vellum seahorse, I have used an embossing tool 
and the seahorse all puffed up....A new technique for me....
Cracked paste was used on the die cut seaweed and on the sentiment strip.

I decided to use the Jellyfish stamp on my second card, 
as I thought it would look good all puffed up....
I used a stencil and distress ink, onto card stock, to use as my background.
Stamped and heat embossed the jellyfish in silver onto vellum as the front layer.
The circle die cuts were used under the vellum 
and then the fall outs heat embossed in silver on the top.
Finishing off with the sentiment heat embossed onto the vellum.

Many thanks to all the very kind messages I have received to ask after me.
I have truly appreciated each and every one of them.
Enjoy your Crafting and keep safe and well.....
Challenges I would love to enter.....
