First eBosser card

Hi everyone
been crafting with my eBosser
im so impressed with this machine
here is a card made using the embossing folder that came with the eBosser machine and a few die’s

i first cut my card blank from snow white centura pearl card 
pre cut the layers of mirri and centura
i placed the centrua pearl card  and a strip of mirri in the A4 embossing folder  and ran it thought the eBosser
they embossed perfectly no cracking  what so ever
i then cut the spellbinder poinsettia shapes (Felt) and the 2 Die-namics fish tail banner strips through the embosser all at the same time
the embosses mirri panel pattern didn’t flatten out at all
 the sentiment is from Jayne Nestroenko just my imagination stamp set 
how fabulous is that you can emboss your card first then cut with die’s
this really is a fantastic machine

dew drops to finish

using the pine branch from the stamp set onto neenha card

there are 13 stamps and 2 sentiments on the sheet fantasic value
i inked in 3 different green versa fine inks  then with my spectrum noir pen
added the berry dots and stamped the sentiment in gold
matted onto red core-dination card onto a cream card blank  with crystal glitter around the edge
to finish off added a red gingham bow
this set of stamps are a godsend …. if you have to make  a quick card

Friday with Jayne Nestorenko

Hi There Everyone

im sure i have lost some days it’s flown by
im sharing 2 cards from 
Just my Imagination stamp sets

a easy card to make 
stamp the 2 images  and sentiment with distressing ink onto centrua pearl card and die cut
i embossed the 2 panels using  mirri and centura matted and layered then added the ribbon and bows
i did add some cosmic twinkles over the stag for some sparkle and a few dew drops to finish

this card was simple to make too
i cut the circle with a spellbinder die  stamped the tree in distressing ink  raised  the front panel with 3d foam tape
attached the silver ribbon and bow with a few die cur snow flakes
of coarse it had to have some sparkle  with twinkles on the tree crystal glitter around the circle and silver holographic peel offs  to frame the card

EBosser product review

my new  Craftwell eBosser from
has arrived
so what do i think ???  
it was very well packed the machine is easy to assemble just plug in and your ready to go
how simple can it get’s beautifully designed very sturdy
so streamlined there are no bits that you could knock bang or damage
at a glance i would say it’s about as long as the Grande Caliber in length minus the handle
but smaller in height compared to caliber
very compact indeed
i have done a little test  piece of cheap as chips 80gsm paper  
made up the recomended  sandwich  from the instruction booklet ran it through
  that part is done for you  a doddle ….this is the result
it embosses A4 size and you can use any of the leading brand dies and embossing folders you might have 

the embossing folder was included with the machine and all the  sandwich plates you will need
here is a close up of a small section there is no cracking on paper and embossed very deep indeed 

I’m all ways happy to share  my findings on new craft products to hit UK
i have to say
the eBosser is top notch ….
Craftwell have  in my opinion covered everything with the eBosser a fabulous all round crafting product

no more cranking handles it's quite and smooth running

well done to crafters companion  bringing us yet another fantastic product
thank you for popping by today

good morning Tuesday

well they said we would have wind coming over
it’s howling out side …been at it most of the night
not got much sleep with things banging around out there
so here  is my cards  for today
from the new just my imagination range from

i inked up my embossing folder with ink placed centura pearl card on top ran it through my Grande Caliber
i love the effect  it gives you looks like vintage wall paper
then stamped the stag masked him off and then stamped the small tree’s
coloured in with my spectrum noir and just added some cosmic shimmer twinkles for snow and on antlers
cut out the topper with a die distressed around the edge and made a faux layer of gold mirri

had alittle fun with this card and distressing inks simply masked out the squares
coloured with 3 different distressing inks lightly dropped some water over and dabbed off with tissue to get snow effect
over stamped the tree then went in with white acrylic paint to re claim the snow
added twinkles then stamped the sentiment with Tim Holts distressing pens in the 3 inks to pull it all together
added crystal glitter around the edge and simply matted onto a plain black card base
a very modern twist using a traditional image
