One of my Stampin' Up! sisters, Amanda, has made several cards using this new 
Ampersand Textured Impressions embossing folder from the Spring Summer catalogue.
When we were first shown this folder at Convention in November, it
did nothing for me at all - it frankly didn't float my boat.
Since seeing Amanda's creations, I have been tempted to buy it
and this afternoon I came up with this......

I used a brayer to ink the embossing folder with Pacific Point ink.
I stamped the corners with one of the stamps from the "Clockworks" stampset.
The words are from the "Loving Thoughts" stamp set 
and the & at the top of the card is one of the  Essentials Hardware Clips
(it's actually silver, but looks black on the photo!)
I'm quite happy with this - watch this space, I could be making more of these!!
