H2H Challenge: Embossing

Smiley from

That has to be the loveliest word I've heard this week. Between Scrap Pack, a workshop and prepping for my Studio J class tonight, I've not had much me time...creatively speaking. And I've not been able to participate in the H2H Challenges for quite a while either! School breaks and traveling will mess with your scheduling I suppose.

But I'm happy to see the challenge this week was embossing because that means I have a card to share!

Here it is:

Stamps: CTMH Share The Magic (October 2010 SOTM)
Inks: CTMH New England Ivy, Cranberry, Versamark
Papers: CTMH New England Ivy, Cranberry, White Daisy, Black, Vellum

I used the same coloring technique as in this card. I haven't used it very often, but I sure love the look it gives.

How about a nice shiny close-up? Smiley from

In case you missed the technique the first time, emboss your image on vellum, flip it over and color it in with markers and blending pens. It gives it a nice watercolored look. I used several CTMH markers to color the back of the image: Barn Red, Cranberry, New England Ivy, Olive, Grey Wool, Black, Honey, Grey Flannel, Vanilla Cream, Blush.

Well, I still have to get dinner planned and cleaned up before class starts so I'll sign off now. Have a great weekend everyone!


  1. I love Santa embossed in gold - very holiday-ish! Thanks for playing along with H2H!

  2. This is awesome, Angela! I also haven't had much time to participate in H2H in awhile but I need to make the time. I miss it! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Santa looks great with the gold embossing. And really like the embossing on the edges of the paper too.

  4. How festive! That gold embossing sure provides a wonderful outline of your image and the matting! Fabulous effect! Thanks for playing along with us at Heart 2 Heart challenges!

  5. Wonderful card. Love this effect, especially with the gold embossing.

  6. Love the gold embossing, I'll have to give it a try with this stamp set too. Thanks for playing along with H2H.
