Emboss It! – CTMH Technique Blog Hop

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!

This month there are around 8 of us highlighting Embossing!  Embossing can be done in a couple of ways, one is considered dry embossing and another is heat embossing.  This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork. If you are coming from VALERIE KAPSHA’S Blog, you are on the right track!

I decided to use both heat and dry embossing.  I saw this card by Becca Whitham which was my inspiration. I used heat embossing for the sentiment.  I stamped with Versamark then used White embossing powder.  The then used the scalloped embossing folder to dry embossing the sugarplum cardstock. I framed the scalloped cardstock with a white stitched rectangle cut using the Stitched Rectangle Thin Cuts. The sentiment and butterflies are from Butterfly Friendship stamp set. I stamped the butterfly with Intense Black Ink and then colored them with the Watercolor Pencils.

Thanks for stopping by!  Please continue onto DARLYS RECKER’S BLOG where you will find some additional artwork Embossing!  Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you thought and happy hopping!

Happy Crafting!

Soft and Pastels Color Dare Challenge #323

Welcome to this weeks Color Dare Challenge! We are featuring a two challenges thin month one with Soft Pastels for your holiday creations.  Please join us by using soft and pastel colors to design your creations.

I was inspired by a beautiful card designed by Krista Hershberger as she used Sugarplum and Snowflakes.

I used Sugarplum cardstock, Ink, and Glitter paper. I cut the snowflakes with Winter Flurries Thin Cuts and the Sugarplum Glitter Paper.  I then used the Holiday Borders Stamp Set and stamped snowflakes with Sugarplum ink. I added a few of the Sugarplum Glitter Gems.
