Scrapy Land Blog Challenge #28 - Embossing

Happy Wednesday!! I'm sorry it's been so long since I've posted. I'm still trying to get caught up from being gone for so long. It's time for another Scrapy Land Blog Challenge. For this challenge, we want to see your embossing projects (heat or dry), using a brand of die that Scrapy Land carries...there are over 40 to choose from :)


For these cards, I started with a Tim Holtz Distressed Brick embossing folder. I spritzed pink cardstock with water before I embossed it to bring out the texture then stitched it to the base. The edges were distressed with a Zutter DIA.


The flowers are clustered over a Cheery Lynn English Tea Party Doily die. Cheery Lynn Dandelion dies were tucked among the blooms.


The sentiment banner is a Taylored Expression Banner Stacklets 1 die. The sentiments were heat embossed with Lana Pink Embossing Powder from Sparkle & Sprinkle. The butterflies are Memory Box Pippi and Memory Box Isabella dies, covered in Doodlebug Sugar Coating. The button on the crinkle ribbon is a Poppystamps Stitched Button die.


I am entering these in the following challenges:

1) Little Scrap Pieces Show It Off Saturday - Anything Goes
2) Jo's Scrap Shack Funday Friday - Anything Goes
3) Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes
4) Sparkle N Sprinkle October Challenge - Anything Goes w/glitter, ep, flocking

Now it's your turn!! Head on over to Scrapy Land to see the amazing projects my design team sisters have created for today's challenge!! Then link up your embossing project using a brand of die that Scrapy Land carries!! I can't wait to see what you create :)

    1. Pink bricks & lovely floral bouquet is not something I'd think to put together, but it is just doggoned beautiful on this card. The brick has such texture and the delicate doily behind that lovely floral bunch, is a brilliant luck. Add in the sparkle of the swirl and the tiny white butterfly, simply stunning. You are the layer queen! TFS & Hugs. (hope you are all rested & back together from your trip and rush home, and that things are well).

  41. My sweetest friends, these are completely magical and I fell in love with them the moment I saw them! You've created the loveliest landscape, as you always do. The brick wall is so beautiful and I'm amazed I still don't own that embossing folder. I've wanted it for years! The frilly-backed floral arrangements are blossoming in love and the butterflies are perfectly dreamy. Your work is always exquisite, my dearest friend. Thank you for always inspiring and always bring a smile (and a sparkle!) to my heart. :o) I hope you're having a wonderful day!
