What beautiful cards, Gina. I love them both, especially the one with the poinsetta..Thank you for showing this great technique. Now I have to get it and try it. Learned and love to emboss now and the gold looks so pretty. You and your very talented ladies have given me hours and hours of joy watching you making these awesome cards.

I wish you all a very merry Christmas and a healthy, happy and prosperous new year.

Melissa, for stubborn VersaMark, take some dawn dishwashing liquid on an old tooth brush and scrub it until it feels smooth. That works well for me. :)

I love this technique and made several right off the bat after watching the video.  I do have an issue though.  My stencils seem to have left over versa mark on them even after cleaning.  I use a baby wipe and stamp cleaner.  What do you clean your stencils with may I ask?  It makes for a lot of extra work cleaning off the unwanted embossing powder the way I am currently doing it

This is a wonderful card idea!  I made two today.  I masked off my flower and added red embossing powder, directly over silver powder.  It was fun.  I needed some cards that are flat for mailing and this fit the bill.  Thanks so much for the wonderful idea!

OH boy oh boy loved this one for sure. The only thing I hate making my own cards is cutting my layering pieces. I really wish you  or someone would sell them already cut and ready for A2 and the next size card.someone had a special on pre scored cards and envelopes that I grabbed up and of course had to cut my 2 layering pieces myself. A chore I wish I could escape Am I the only one who hates trying to get the measurements right?  That's why I love it when you have your special kits that include it all. Love all your hints and of course all your products.
