FCCB #285 - Embossing!

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #285-Embossing
Create a project that features wet or dry embossing!

This Weeks Sponsor

The prize is 7 digital stamps!

And we are giving away a $25 Amazon gift certificate, courtesy of the FCCB Design Team!

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

Here is my project using the super cute Bugaboo Brat School Crayon Girl digital stamp and Cricut CTMH Artistry and Basic Shapes cartridges. I created a circular card base by welding two circles together, and then cut this cool globe shape to fit on the front. 

Since our theme this week is Embossing, I chose to use a flower embossing folder to emboss the top green cut from my globe, as well as the ruler, which I also highlighted with Distress Ink. Some awesome Distress Crayons add some fun effects as well! I finished it off with a few pretty sequins - I'm totally addicted to these lately!

I used alcohol based Prismacolor and Hobby Colour Markers to colour in this cute Crayon Girl image and then added on some Stickles for glittery shine!

The stamp set Color My World from Pretty Cute Stamps was the perfect addition! I heat embossed the sentiment on the geotag, which was cut from the Artistry cartridge and then edged my circle with Versamark before applying this cool Verdigris embossing powder from Ranger. I love the flecks of gold in this powder! I popped up the center to give it some extra dimension.

Inside, I used some more stamps from the Color My World stamp set and added some more Tim Holtz Distress Crayons.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Don't forget to head over to the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog to see what all the other sponsors have come up with - and enter your own project using a Cricut cut for a chance to win!
