Our featured designer today is Emmy Stammler! 

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?

If I could I wouldn't go just to one place. I would travel to different places, learn about new cultures and see all the wonders the world has to offer. 


What is your favorite food?

Chocolate and coffee! it is not very healthy, but I can definitely live on it:-)


What is your 'signature' crafting technique?

Though I really like all the ready crafting materials and I'm open to new trends, I love to do things my way! All of my creations have a tailor made background papers, stamped images, hand stitched patterns and fussy cut embellishments. 


And finally... any words to our readers? 

Keep your eyes wide open! The world is amazing place and there is inspiration everywhere!  



Hi everyone!

Emmy's here with today's project and a small tutorial on how I did it!

I recently re-discovered the magic of embossing folders. And if you combine them with Design Memory Craft Gelatos®  - the effect will be amazing!

Step 1: you need white cardstock and an embossing folder. 


Step 2: After you emboss your cardstock, begin choosing the Design Memory Craft Gelatos® colors, which you like to use. I always prepare a broad range of colors in different shades, because you never know where your creativity will take you. 

For the background I choose Gelato Guava. I applied a bit of color on different places and then created the watercolor effect using the Water Brush from the Essential Tools Set (#770300)


Step 3: Rub gently the Gelato Gold Champagne on the embossed parts. Don't push the stick too hard - the color glied easily onto the paper and the effect is stunning.


Here is a close up. I didn't dissolved the golden pigment, because I really like the vintage distressed look it created.


Step 4: Take a piece of light brown cardstock and apply Gelato Gold Champagne color to the edges. Don't dissolve it woth water, but rub it gently with your fingers to create a shimmering edge.



Step 5: Using the Water Brush and Gold Champagne Gelato add brilliant shimmering effect to the butterflies.


To finish off the deisgn add brown pearls to your card.


I hope you enjoyed my little tutorial! Make sure to come back tomorrow for more inspration from our design team!
