Enjoy the Simple Things In LIfe

Hello again!  I have somehow gotten behind in my posting and have more cards to share than days are left in the week.  So, today you get two posts.  This is the card I made for Fantabulous Cricut's Challenge Me Monday #72.  All of the cuts were taken from Walk In My Garden.  I added distress ink to the brown background and the blue background was embossed with my Cuttlebug.    As for the sentiment, it was heat embossed and came from My Creative Time's This & That set.  

Fantabulous Cricut - Challenge Me Monday #72

I love to heat emboss but have always hated getting the extra embossing powder off of the paper.  As I was browsing Sarah's blog, Pink Cricut, she shared an awesome trick and I am passing it on.  She uses an Anti-Static Bag, which I had never heard of until I saw her post. The above link has a tutorial but essentially it is a bag that you rub on your paper and the embossing powder will only stick to the ink.  I bought one at Michael's over the weekend and was amazed!  It works so well!  Just thought I would share because it makes life so much easier when heat embossing.  Enjoy!
