Blogger's Challenge (Sept. 21)

Better late than never I suppose! Here is my Blogger's Challenge card finally. This week we were to showcase embossing - of which there are numerous 'embossing' ways. I took the easy way and used my Cuttlebug and embossed the Close to Cocoa piece. I then took my SU Vanilla Craft pad across it to hit the raised portions. I also sponged all the edges with the Vanilla Craft pad.

This is a new stamp I just got today at a stamp convention I went to. I had to go because Jackie from Inky Antics was going to be there and I had to meet her. IA has a message board and Jackie 'chats' with us over there, so I felt like I 'knew' her. It was awesome to meet her - she is just too sweet. Ok - back to the card...the stamp is by Inky Antics. I used markers on it and then spritzed the stamp with water. I didn't recolor the stamp in between stamping - I did re-spritz the stamp though before stamping the next two times.

All Supplies SU! unless Otherwise Noted
Stamp - Inky Antics
CS - Ruby Red, Close to Cocoa, Very Vanilla
Ink - Vanilla Craft
Other - Ruby Red & Close to Cocoa Markers, Clear Button, Striped Ribbon (from a ribbon share with Jody), Glue Dots

Great minds think alike! Love what you did and yours turned out so well just swiping the craft pad across, much better than mine ever does.

Very pretty. I love the frosted look of the Cuttlebug folder and the clear button and ribbon is a nice added touch. Cool stamp image too. Ida
