Embossing Fun

Last night I had an embossing class.  We made cards using both types of embossing.  We had so much fun!  I forgot to take pictures at class but here are the projects we made:

For this card I used the Woodland Textures embossing folder - still one of my favorites.
I adhered it to the crumb cake piece before embossing so it would all match perfectly.
Then I added leaves using the Colorful Seasons bundle. I love those intricate die cuts.
Did\ you notice the little piece of fluff above the leaves? That is the copper ribbon all
 stretched out. f you pull it apart you end up with this really fun netting.

This card uses the Cheers to the Year stamp set. I embossed the circles on the 
background in gold and silver. I added a strip of the gorgeous Year of Cheer specialty 
designer series paper.  All of it has metallic foil - just beautiful!  The piece behind the 
sentiment is one of the foil snowflakes from the holiday catalog. I just punched the 
middle of it out with a 2" circle punch.  I'll  save the outside of it to use as a wreath on 
another card.

The card on the left is the card we made in class. It was made with the emboss resist
technique.  I stamped the snowflakes from the Colorful Seasons set in Versamark
on Shimmery White paper and them embossed them with clear embossing powder.
Then I took my aqua painter and Dapper Denim and applied a wash of color all over
 the card. The embossed areas resist the ink.  After that, I took my aqua painter and 
splattered drops of water on the card and blotted them with a towel. The water 
caused the ink to lift leaving little spots with less color.

The card on the right I sponged with Soft Sky, Marina Mist & Pacific Point. 
Sponging makes the colors a little softer.

Hope you enjoyed this peek at the fun class we had last night. Hope to see you at a class soon!
