Embossing Two Ways

It’s time for a new challenge over at The Flower Challenge and this month it is all about embossing!

This month we also have prizes and Altenew has been so generous to sponsor the challenge and is giving away this gorgeous Cross Stitch Flower stamp set below, worth $21 USD  to our lucky winner.

Also Aileen from Colour & Sparkle is kindly giving away a set of Altenew stamps on her blog to one lucky person (living in Australia or New Zealand) who leaves a comment on her post.

Here is the card I made for the challenge using Altenew’s stamps and stencil.

I started with the background and used some BoBunny Sparkle paste to give a little shimmer to the background. The shine in this paste is beatuiful and I can say that after at least two years it is still spreadable (which is not the case for some of the other brands I have in my stash.)

While my background was drying, I started on my flowers. I wanted embossing to be the focus of my card so I picked this Frosted Garden set so that it would show off the beautiful WOW Embossing Powder. I love the sparkle and mixture of color of this powder.

After all of my flowers were heat embossed, I used my Big Shot and dies to cut them out and worked on the placement. I wanted the flower to look like the were growing around the sentiment, so kept adding layer using 3D glue dots.

I finished the card with some white embossing on navy paper and am all set to send my card with my mom in time for Mother’s Day.

I hope you have a wonderful week and don’t forget to check out all the beautiful cards my fellow Design Team members made as well. Thanks for stopping by!
