It has been two weeks since we had a Shining the Light Challenge and let me tell you, I sure did miss you all last week. For this weeks challenge our fabulous coordinator Chris has come up with one fun challenge.
This weeks challenge:
To use embedded embossing, you punch out shapes or cut layers or strips out and then adhere them to your card base piece. Once adhered, place the entire layer in an embossing folder of your choice and emboss both the punched out shapes/layers/strips and the base piece all together. The result looks like seamless embossing … you have just embedded your shapes/layers to the card base.
To make the challenge even more fun, we will be giving out a prize, a $15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!! Entries for the prize must be submitted by Thursday, May 12. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday. If you are not using ODBD stamps, please do not enter more than once. Additional entries without using ODBD stamps will not be commented on or will they qualify for prizes.
While it is not required to use Our Daily Bread Designs images and sentiments on your creations, we would love to see them if you have them.As a way of recognizing those who do use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps, we will again be choosing 1 to 2 creations to spotlight for our Shining the Light Award. In order to qualify for this award, however, you must use Our Daily Bread stamps and have your submission added to Mr. Linky by May 12 at 8 p.m. EST.If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC59. When creating your posts on blogs please include a direct link to the challenge.
Now, are you ready to see my interpretation? I started out with some very subtle designer paper by BoBunny called Gabrielle which had some tone on tone butterflies on it, so I thought I'd add some more butterflies in form of the single butterfly stamp by ODBD , which I cut out with the matching custom die . To make them stay where I wanted them I applied some Tombo glue let it dry for a minute and ran it through my Cuttlebug in the Textile embossing folder, Have a look and see for yourself
Paper: PTI Vintage Cream, Dark Chocolate, BoBunny Gabrielle
Stamps: ODBD Single butterfly, Scripture Series 1
Ink: Tim Holtz Distressing Ink Vintage Photo, SU Close to Cocoa
Accessories: Spellbinders Labels 16 and 18, ODBD Custom Die Single Butterfly, Prima rose, leaves cut with my Cricut Expression and the Mother's Day Bouquet cartridge, Studio 112 half earls, Cuttlebug embossing folder Textile, Prima pearl flourish
What do you think? I was trying to make the Labels 16 die cut sort of blend in so I embossed it too and matched the embossing lines and swirls up to the embossed BG.
Do you need some more inspiration to get those creative juices flowing? Well, we have just the thing for you. Check out what
