Tuesday Throwdown #228: Embossing

Happy Tuesday, friends! Hope you are ready for another week of crafting fun with the Tuesday Throwdown gang. Our challenge theme this week is Embossing. All you have to do is incorporate embossing - wet or dry - on your project.  Our sponsor is Avery Elle but you can use any stamps as long as you follow the theme.

I made a simple birthday card using the Make A Wish set by Clearly Besotted Stamps. The background is embossed with the X-Cut Stars folder. The greeting is stamped with VersaFine Majestic Blue and popped up on foam tape.


Here's a close-up of the stamped images. I did some inlaid die cutting before embossing the stars in the background and slotting the balloons into the negative spaces. I adhered some thread to the balloons and for fun I cut one loose to fly off the card! In keeping with the starry theme I included a strip of Bo Bunny patterned paper from the Blast Off 6x6 pad (now out of print). To finish, a few blue bling.

Challenges:

Now it's your turn to create a project based on this week's theme: "Embossing". For ideas and inspiration, take a peek at what the rest of the DT members have made. Remember to link up your project at the Tuesday Throwdown Challenge Blog by 3pm Pacific / 11pm UK Monday, January 26th. And the most important requirement: Have Fun!

Thanks for stopping by today. I'm behind on my visits again. Rosie was (and still is) needing extra attention this past week due to a chest infection. She's on the mend now as the antibiotics are finally kicking in... and I'm able to catch up. See you on my rounds!

Beijinhos!

  12. This is fun and full of celebration! I love the glossy look on the balloons-how did you do that? It Nothing is crooked-all is straight...i have a problem making things straight:) My husband says this...men! Love the little bling and I like how you show all the tools of your trade. Send a big hug to Rosie from me. I am glad she is mending and will say extra prayers and tell my Katie girl to fly over to you and give a lick to Rosie
