April Challenge Results!

Hi All!

Thank you to everyone who participated in the April Dry Embossing Challenge! Please check out the entries when you have a few minutes.

This month’s random winner of the Simon Says Stamp $25 gift voucher is entry #13 by Connie. Congrats Connie, I emailed you!

Onto some highlights… the first is by Mary Jane:

Mary Jane

She achieved a dry embossed background effect by adhering white die cuts onto white cardstock. And because they are die cuts, she was able to highlight one with color. I love the look!

Next is this fabulous water scene by Linda:


Sometimes it’s hard to get a solid image on paper with ink on an embossing folder (which is why I prefer toilet paper!). But, as a water scene, it totally works – I love how it’s not perfectly solid – it adds to the waviness of the sea. Her fish are fantastic – metallic and glittery – and they are dry embossed too. Such a great card!

The next card I want to highlight is by mojo3356…


This card is the coolest masculine card! I don’t know how she did it, but it’s completely awesome. If you’re out there mojo, please share your technique!

Finally, this card by Dayse:


She layered two pieces of cardstock that are embossed with the same folder, then she cut the hearts out to reveal the duplicate embossing behind. Creative!!

Thank you again to everyone who uploaded their cards. I’ll be back shortly with the launch of the May Sketch Challenge – I’m very excited about this one!

      Thanks Dayse. You could’ve blown me away with a feather when I found out I’d won.

    Congrats Connie! And thank you all for your kind comments on my masculine card. I made using just one embossing folder. It’s a Sizzix Tim holtz one that comes in a double pack. Embossed four papers (grey, brown, black and silver metal). Ink the colored papers a bit. Then just cut away sections on the metal one and patch worked back together using colored pieces. Kinda like a puzzle. The square heart embellishment is just a puffy sticker from my stash..
