Little Tangles Challenge #11 - Embossing


Welcome to another Little Tangles Challenge!  This week we are all about embossing - dry or heat.  If you have been following me for a while now, you know that I have a bit of an attachment to my heat gun.  I LOVE heat embossing.  Here's what I came up with:




I used my newest Neat & Tangled set, On the Strip 2 as well as Kindness Matters.

First I embossed those dot strips in silver on vellum (I LOVE embossing on vellum).  Then I added the sentiment in gold.

When looking at the design, I realized that those little circles are exactly the same size as my Power Punch, so I randomly punched out a bunch of them.  Then I gold embossed a 1/2" strip of vellum and adhered it to the back of the piece so the gold shows through.




The base is Whisper cardstock.

Now it's your turn!  We'd love for you to play along, you can use either dry or heat embossing in you project, and you might just win a free set of stamps!  You don't have to use Neat & Tangled stamps, although we love to see them, and Danielle has some cute free digis here that you can use.  Can't wait to see what you create!

Supplies Used
Paper/Cardstock:  Recollections - Vellum; CTMH - Whisper Cardstock
Stamps:  Neat & Tangled - On the Strip 2, Kindness Matters
Ink:  Versamark
Other:  CTMH - Gold and Silver Embossing Powder; WRMK - Power Punch; Tombow - Mono and Vellum Adhesive
