Embossing Folders, Blender Pens, and Cork

I was having fun using my new embossing folders.  Both the houndstooth and the stripes made there debut in the 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalog (the big one.)  I used the houndstooth embossing folder on the base of the card.  I think you will be able to see it if you click on the picture for a closer view.  I used the stripes embossing folder on the island indigo panels.
I love the cork sheets and was glad that I was able to find a place to work them in.  And look! I even worked in some ribbon (black 1/8" taffeta ribbon!)
I used blender pens and my ink pads to color in the bonsai tree.  If you have never used a blender pen before, then check out this short video:
