Week #13 Blogger's Challenge, Embossing


I knew the minute I saw this challenge that I wanted to try a embossing technique that will be in the NEW October Technique Junkies newsletter (coming out next week!) called Cuttlebug Smoosh Technique. It wasn't one of my TJ Design Team assignments, but I had been wanting to try it cause it looked so fun! I don't get to use my Cuttlebug much, since I'm normally working on stamping for my Stampin' Up! business, but for this challenge I decided to pull it off my shelf.

I also saw a card done with the new Basic Grey and Purely Pomegranate and thought they were such RICH colors together! That was my inspiration for this card. I taught a class last night using the Three For You punch, and grabbed it since it was close by. The centers of the flowers are a dab of Liquid Glue sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the Challenge Blogger's to see how they "Embossed" this week! There are SO many ways to emboss, it will be interesting to see what they choose to do!

Sets: Artfully Asian
C/S: Basic Grey, Whisper White, Purely Pomegranate
Inks: Purely Pomegranate, Basic Gray
Other: Ticket Corner punch, Pomegranate ribbon, Grey Taffeta ribbon, Liquid Glue and Dazzling Diamonds, Three for You punch, Cuttlebug Embossing folder
