View Full Version : Feb. Crop Embossing

Ok ladies, since my sister and I just got a cuttlebug :D Let's see what you can come up with that includes embossing. If you don't have a bug you could dry emboss with a stencil and a stylus. Hopefully I'll have time to play today...

No fair, you have the cuttle bug!! Can I stamp & emboss with my gun?

I wasn't going to even touch my supplies today, Thanks sis, now I have too.

I love these challenges!

Here you go...for all you snow girls...

Very beautiful Karen!

No stamp embossing, you have lots of preembossed things, you could make something with those...

Ginny, you are a task master!!

Very Nice card Karen! Is the strip in the middle a ribbon, or just unembossed card. We just got our cuttlebug, so a couple questions. How did you get both sides embossed with out losing detail? did you put both sides of the 4 x 6 paper in 2 folders at the same time?

I love it!

Oh, that is so pretty. Love it. :) :)

You have to work with the CB a bit...I have learned to make two scores with my ScorPal and then emboss one side to a certain point (I put a post it note to make me stop) and then turn it around and emboss the other end with a different folder...That leaves the middle stip for ribbons, stamping a line seniment or brads, jewels, whatever you want...

Thank you for explaining. Ginny has the machine this week (we are splitting custody) so I will refer to this post when I get to play with it again.

02-22-2009, 03:12 PM
OH! I thought that was a ribbon across the middle. Very Nice!

Thats a great trick Karen....thanks for sharing!! Might have to go have a play!!

Here's mine, :D The background is embossed and the clovers. Thanks for the challenge.

I love that Karen...two patterns on one card!
and Cyndi - very nice! I love the St. Patty's day color and clovers.

I didn't have time to do this, but thought I'd post one I did a while ago since I had a lot of embossing on it. I had to put it on blue paper because the white border wasn't showing.

02-22-2009, 06:07 PM
Cyndi, Wow, this is beautiful! I love the texture and the color. The colors in the stamp bring it all together very nicely!!

Cass, I really like the the choice of embossing patterns.

Great cards ladies. I love Cyndi's colors - WOW. Cassie, I think I may have to break down and get that paisley folder; I'm loving how yours looks.

02-22-2009, 07:30 PM
Oh Cyndi! It is just beautiful! You know we all love te HM so much, and St. Patty's on top of it, Way Kewl!

Cass, I never got the paisley folder, but after seeing your great crd, I think I'm off to find it...

Had a great time ladies, thanks for letting me play!

02-22-2009, 08:07 PM
Nice job ladies, they look beautiful! I got a couple minutes to play earlier, but didn't get my cards finished. Hopefully in the next day or two...

Well all the good stuff is at DS, but I got this one done with what I had. Not my best work, but I like the different textures.

This is one of my favorite embossing folders! Great card!

02-23-2009, 01:46 AM
Lovely cards, ladies. I'm blessed to have all the embossing folders shown, so I'll do some lifting soon. That is another HM stamp that is so cute.

02-23-2009, 05:47 AM
Boy, there's been some great cards. Cass, I keep meaning to scraplift this on of yours, so elegant. Karen K. very pretty, love the soft green. Janie, love this card, great how you inked it, still need to try that. :)
