stamping friends!!!! WOW, this week just flew by! Yesterday I received an e-mail newsletter from CPC's (Christian Paper Crafts) and their Fun on Friday challenge caught my eye. See I've had my Nesties for quite some time now and all I have been doing is use them to cut and nothing else. When Cindy was referring to a technique called dry embossing that she saw GinaK. use on her weekly StampTV videos I kind got curious ;D. Well, to make a long story short I went to StampTV watched the video, went back to CPC and read more about the challenge and went straight to town. It was pretty easy to do but I think I'll use another cardboard shim next time to make the embossing pop a little more. Have a look at my CPC FOF#38 challenge
And we know that in all things......
Paper:PTI True Black, SU Sky Blue, Basic Grey Periphery
Stamps: ODBD Scripture Collection 1 Romans 8:28
Ink: VersaFine Onyx Black, Tim Holtz Distress Ink Faded Jeans
Accessories: Nesties Labels 9, Fleur De Lis Pendant, Dark Blue Dew Drops, Prima Hydrangeas, Prima Heirloom Willow Leaf, Recollections light blue half pearl brad, Tim Holtz Distressing Tool, Foam Tape, Tombo Glue
So, what do you think? Does this look cool or what? :D:D.
I love the way this technique frames the scripture even more than just cutting and embossing the Labels 9 die. I think I will use this technique a lot more now...especially since I found out I actually can get some use out of my embossing mat now, where before I never really used it,LOL!!
Well, this is it for me for right now. I have something special up my sleeves,LOL!!! Yep, on Tuesday is my Birthday and a week later is my Blog Anniversary. I suppose you have a feeling what is coming, right? Well, we shall see, so make sure you'll check back... I promise you, you will not be disappointed ;D;D. At least I think you won't,LOL!!
Thanks so much for stopping by today.
Enjoy your weekend and big hugs,
