CTMH Spotlight Blog Hop – Embossing

Welcome to the November 2011 Close to My Heart Spotlight Blog Hop!  This month we are embossing!  There are different types of embossing (dry or wet).  Normally, when I think of embossing it’s the technique I used below where you use embossing powders, a type of wet (slow-drying) ink, and a heat gun.  There is also dry embossing where you use a stylus or fancier embossing folders to create a raised look on your paper.

This blog hop is a circle so if you are just starting, continue until you make your way back here.  If you are coming from Tamatha’s Blog, you are on the right track!

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart unless otherwise noted: Black Cardstock, Baby Pink Cardstock, Baby Pink Embossing Powder, Silver Embossing Powder, Versamark Ink, Key to My Heart stamp set, and Love Always stamp set.

I do not emboss very often but I do like the look of it.  This card has a very elegant look and only took minutes to make.

Thanks for stopping by!  Your next stop is Elizabeth’s Blog!
