Impress Us!! HSS Challenge

Hi Stampers!! It's time to make an impression or show us who's the (em)boss at Hand Stamped Sentiments! Hee hee! Get out your heat tool and/or your embossing folders or plates and get crafty.

This challenge I wanted to showcase both heat and dry embossing. And I wanted to use the new set called Festive & Fun from the Holiday Mini. Check out the different textures on the strips of Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green....I used different embossing folders. But wait........there's more!!!! I also ran the satin ribbon through the Houndstooth Embossing Folder. Can you see it??

If not, here is a close up of the ribbon. You can click on the photo for a larger view. Fun, right?! I saw this done at a SU! Regional Seminar, the demonstrator even embossed paper napkins, fabric, she tried everything. It seemed fun, so I had to try it.

Colors: Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, Very Vanilla, Early Espresso
Stamps: Festive & Fun
Accessories: Stripes, Houndstooth, Square Lattice, Finial Press and Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folders, Big Shot, Espresso Satin Ribbon, Gold Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Zig Painty Marker (gold), Corner Rounder punch

Happy Stamping,

Ok, seriously so cute, the play on words at the beginning of your post. You are so clever! Love the card. It looks amazing with the different embossing folders and gold embossing powder. That is so cool, embossing ribbon. Never would have thought of that.
