Embossing time at Crafting by Designs

Good afternoon to everyone and welcome to Week Five Challenges at Crafting by Designs!

I am one of the hostesses for this week and I am introducing you to our “embossing” challenge. We want to see any kind of embossing, wet, dry, or faux, in your project. You can also create any kind of project you heart desires, but you must use some kind of embossing.

My project uses dry and wet. The pink background with the dry embossing was completed using a Sizzix embossing folder and distress ink. My wet embossing was done with an {ippity} stamp set, “Now and Always.” I used one of the flowers from that set. If you are interested in “Now and Always,” click here. “Now and Always” is one of my most popular {ippity} sets. I cannot keep them in stock. You can go ahead and order, I will have more within the next week or so.

I am also using a sketch from StampingScrapping® Techniques and Tutorials paid access site. See that little teapot? That was designed by my good friend Cindy, owner of StampingScrapping. This set, “Tea Time,” is another must have. These clear stamps are the perfect size for Copic coloring.
Now, head on over to Crafting by Designs for our Embossing Challenge and for our many other challenges. You have until May 5 to enter your little piece of art for the embossing challenge, whatever it might be. There is still plenty to do over at Crafting by Designs. We also have some wonderful sponsors for April! We would love to see you there.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
