Hello! You’re going to love the Just Add Ink challenge this week – we’re adding embossing!
Make a project with any kind of embossing you like – heat, paste, folders…. There’s so much potential! Go nuts and add all the embossing if you like!
I decided this challenge was the time to dust off my neglected embossing mat and use them with the Butterfly Beauty Thinlits to create a pretty background effect.
If you haven’t used an embossing mat before, it’s an extra set of layering plates & mats for your Big Shot that transform cutting dies into embossing dies. They don’t cut through – they just leave the imprint on your cardstock. Magic! Especially when you add a spritz of Shimmer Paint (which of course you can’t see in the photo – but it’s there and it looks fab!).
I’ve layered butterflies from the same Thinlits set on top and cropped down one of the bigger sentiments to just include ‘friend’. Of course, the sentiment is heat embossing in white – that’s my favourite use of embossing!
The DSP is from the Floral Romance suite. This sheet is a vellum finish and just gorgeous! The colours and pattern are so beautiful. I love Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive together.
