Weekly Challenge - Embossing

Happy Wednesday!

The challenge this week is embossing. Make a card or project using either dry embossing or heat embossing with EP or a combination of both. Sorry that I don't have a card posted, I promise to post later today. I've got a busy morning to get started and grocery shopping, oh so fun!!

Have fun with this challenge, can't wait to see the different ideas for embossing. Remember to be entered for a chance to win a little something from me - take part in the challenge, post a comment with a link to your work here, and finish by 9am next Tuesday morning. I'll draw the winner at random and post the winning project on my blog that day.

Happy Stamping!! :)

edited to add photos:


Each of these cards was made using the new Summer Picnic DSP from the Stampin' Up!Occasions Mini Catalog. I have embossed the fruit on each card with clear EP.

For some fun, I also added Kool Aid drink mix (sugar free) to the clear EP before embossing to create a scratch and sniff effect on some of the fruit. If you want to try the scratch and sniff technique, just mix 1 1/2 parts EP to 1 part sugar free drink mix and emboss with your heat gun.



Recipes: Stamps: Tart & Tangy, Happy Everything, Pun Fun Paper: Summer Picnic DSP, Bashful Blue CS, White CS, Wild Wasabi CS Ink: Real Red, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Only Orange, Garden Green Accessories: Heat tool, clear embossing powder, Kool Aid Sugar Free drink mix, Versamarker, ribbons.

These are all so cute!!!! So, I have a question. Do they have to be hand dry embossed or can they be cuttlebugged?
