There’s another fabulous challenge starting today at Time Out and this fortnight, our theme is … embossing with an optional twist of sparkle! Here’s my embossed, sparkly card …
I stamped a green ombré background onto some spare card (as demonstrated here by Laura Bassen), adhered the Memory Box tree outlines onto it (cut whilst at the Lake House … thanks, Ardyth!) and then did some easy trimming out. The trees were treated to a coat of Wink of Stella, topped with Glossy Accents, and were set aside to dry. I die cut a window into a white card panel, stamped the Uniko Studio sentiment, embossed the panel using a swiss dots EF, and added a fine strip of glitter paper to each side. On the card base, I adhered some glitter paper where the window was to go and popped the embossed panel up on foam dots (thanks, Geri!) over the top. The trees were popped up on foam dots in the aperture and adhered flat where they touched the embossed panel. I finished by adding a minute star sequin (thanks, Darnell!) to each tree and to the J in the sentiment.
So, where will your creative imagination take you this time around … dry embossing … heat embossing … embossing paste … and will you add the optional sparkle twist or go without? As usual, our overall winner will be invited to be a Guest Designer for a future challenge and in addition, if you use the twist, you’ll be in with a random chance of winning a stamp set from our sponsor, Avocado Arts! I do hope you’ll be able to find time to have some fun and play along … all the details, together with a ton of inspiration from our awesome Guest Designer Lesley and the Design Team, are over at Time Out. See you in the gallery!
