Embossing with Debbie Standard!

My guest today is the lovely Debbie Standard of Live Life Loud. I got to know her when we were both on the Card Patterns team. She is the ultimate colour extraordinaire! Her creations are always bright and eye-catching and perfectly embellished. Each visit to her blog is truly a spectacular visual feast! Today, she shares how she uses just cardstock and embossing folders to create amazing projects. She's also hosting a challenge with an awesome prize!!! :)

But first, let's drool over her gallery, shall we?

I was so flattered that Yvonne asked me to be a guest on her blog.  I am a huge fan of her work and loved working with her at Card Patterns last year. Her work is always so inspirational so I keep her on my list of blogs I visit often. I love working with color and cardstock. I started scrapping with my daughter, Kim Moreno, about 13 years ago and was immediately hooked.  As a critical care nurse I love the artistic outlet that scrapbooking provides me.  This is my happy place.  Since I joined Core’dination’s Design Team a year or two back I have had the opportunity to get to work with all their fabulous products and as a result have learned that it is entirely possible to create great cards and layouts with very little patterned paper or none at all.  With all the different embossing folders on the market you can actually create any pattern that you want and if you want to add color to it you can just chalk over the embossing or ink it.  One of the advantages of the Core’dinations cardstock is that the “core” is a different shade or color and you can just sand your embossed work or sand their pre-embossed cardstock to get different tones.  Here are a few of the many many different pages and cards that I have done recently.

Try this yourself and see how much fun it can be. 

Isn't it amazing what a little embossing and sanding can do to create awesome backgrounds? Drool-worthy right? Are you ready to play along with Debbie's challenge?

*Edited* The winner of the challenge will get:
1. A $25 gift certificate to Two Peas.

And if you use Core'dinations cardstock in your creation, they want to feature it on their blog! :) Isn't that exciting??? :) Don't forget me when you get famous! *winks*

The challenge: Link your newly created projects showcasing embossing and sanding in a unique way by Friday April 8 via Inlinkz (located at the end of this post).

As always, please leave a little love for my guest Debbie! :)
