Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge 76

Hi everyone!  I hope everyone that was in the US had a great Thanksgiving and if you aren’t on the US, then I hope you had a great week!

This week we have an embossing challenge.  This is actually my first time embossing with an embossing mat. I remembered when I first started card making I bought one, but never really knew how to use it.  Then it got lost in my craft room.  Then this week as I was doing some clean up, I found it!

Here is this weeks challenge:

And here is my card:

The tree and the snowflake border are form Memory Box.  The tree is actually embossing with texture, but it is hard to make out in the photo.

The background is a blend of four distressed inks: Tumbled Glass, Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire, and Black Soot.  I then splashed some water on the background & let it sit for about 20 seconds.  While you can’t see it in this photo, I also spritzed with with Perfect Pearls that was mixed with water.

The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn.  I stamped the sentiment with Blueberry ink from My Favorite Things and then clear heat embossed the sentiment.

I assembled the card and placed it on a Neenah Solar White 110lb card base.  The tree is on foam tape.  I made seven of these cards and had to cut little pieces of foam tape for each tree.  I need a taller craft table I believe!

The last touch was adding the clear sequins which is a mix from Pretty Pink Posh.

I hope you have enjoyed this weeks card and I look forward to seeing yours!

Ricky
