Challenge 25 'Embossing,' Winner of Ch 24 & Goodbye to Elaine

How to play: This fortnights theme is 'Embossing,' you need to make a craft item (card or other) which features embossing somewhere, it must also include a DIGI IMAGE somewhere but this doesn't have to be a Bee Crafty one.

Please submit your entry by Saturday 13th March (Midday UK) by posting on your own blog and leaving a comment below, with a direct link to your item if possible (see the link tip to the right). The PRIZE is one of Bee Craftys downloads!

There are lots of different approaches to embossing and many tools available, my DT have used a variety of techniques and included some tips to inspire you with their examples...

Victoria spotted a great tutorial on The Cuttlebug Spot which inspired her to create this fantastic double embossed card using 'Seated Bunny.'
 
 
Sheri has combined two embossing techniques to great effect in her super boys card using 'Seated Boy.'
 
The main panel was embossed with an embossing folder (Dots by Quickutz). The little panel that Seated Boy is sitting on was embossed by hand using my Score Board & Tool.
 
Start with a larger piece of paper, you can then trim to size. Tip: If score tool is not scoring easily, lightly rub a piece of wax paper over your cardstock. The tool will now move more easily.
 
Kim has used heat embossing on her charming birthday card using 'Little Lady Birthday.'
 
Here are some tips for heat embossing on a digital image:

Option #1: To emboss the entire image, print image from a ink jet printer. Ink stays wet longer. Apply embossing powder immediately so that it will still stick to the image. Emboss with heating tool. (I didn't do ithis option on my card.)

Option #2: If the embossing powder doesn't stay on at all for you using option #1, try using a Zig emboss writer. It's a pen so you would just go over the entire image and then apply the powder. Work with small sections as it dries up fast as well. Emboss with heating tool. This is what I did on my card.
 
Lori's very pretty card using 'Whimsical Girl and Bird' is embossed with 2 different Quikutz folders - Large and Small Dots - in addition to some heat embossing with clear embossing powder and heat gun on the image.
 
Trix has created a charming, rustic card with 'Fluffy Bunny and Flowers' which uses an embossed background.
 
Winner of Challenge 24 'Sew Cute' ...is Renata for her beautifully made and cleverly stitched card, well done!
 
Goodbye to DT member Elaine. Elaine has been a great member of the Bee Crafty Design Team, producing consistently lovely, well crafted cards....but due to other commitments has had to leave us.
Best wishes Elaine, you will certainly be missed!

I had a really fun time with the challenge and always like to use embossing on many of my cards!

This card is very special to me as it's for a dear sweet boy who will be turning (Ten) this week. I thought it would be a lot of fun to submit Jett's card to a lot a of challenge and then if it happens to WIN, I can show him on his birthday!

Thanks for a great challenge - you can find my card on my blog - Click Here!

Thanks,
Lisa
