October Project Parade Day 6

You know when I first started stamping, I embossed everything! Although I don't emboss as much today, I still love it!

Our Project Parade challenge this month was embossing, heat or dry. Of course I chose heat embossing, and I decided to work with Thankful Blossoms which takes to embossing so beautifully! These were my first Verve stamps, and I still love them. I got them in the spring, and they always remind me of spring, so I took my spring colours from the Basic Grey, Lily Kate papers and went from there. I picked Julee's Mojo Monday 57 sketch to get me going and it all came together quickly from there.

The small flowers and leaf were stamped randomly on vellum card stock and embossed with gold embossing powder. Then I turned it over and coloured the images with markers, and when I flipped it back, I gasped as though it were the first time I saw it LOL! So simple, so beautiful! Add a few gems, ribbon and a scalloped border and voila!

Do you get as excited about embossing as I do? Whether you do or not, we want you to come play with us. Dry emboss or heat emboss a fabulous creation and then link it to this post or upload it to Splitcoast Stampers with the keyword VVPP07. Get it in by October 24th and you'll be entered for a chance to win $15 Verve Bucks!

That's it for Day 6 of our October Embossing Project Parade! Stay tuned for more embossing inspiration tomorrow...until then, have a great day!
