Inked Embossing -HSS 140

Half way through the week and I'm still alive.  It's a good thing I can survive on very little sleep because between pulling some late nights to get things done around the house (and some stamping too) and my son waking up at 4:15AM, I'm sure not getting much! At least I have lots of time to get a run in a few mornings a week :) 
Last night I did manage to get a little stamping done after I wrapped things up around the house.  And being that yesterday was Tuesday, I had to check out what Hand Stamped Sentiments had going on this week.  It's a technique challenge, which I love!  It's always fun to learn something new :)

Inked Embossing is a technique I have used before and it is a fun way to use your embossing folders.  It's almost like creating your own DSP.   I started out with the Chevron Embossing folder, but the ideas that I had in my head just weren't coming out the same when I tried to put them together on paper.  So, I tried the Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder and LOVED how it turned out!

Supplies Used:
Paper ~ Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler
Ink ~ Cherry Cobbler
Stamp Set ~ Snowflake Soiree
Other Supplies ~ Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder, Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbon, Finishing Touches Edgelits

Happy Stamping!

  4. Very simple and elegant. You did a great job with the challenge and with that little sleep, amazing! Thank you for joining us at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

  5. This card is so elegant, you got such a perfect impression that it really does look like textured DSP. Nice work friend!

  6. Totally gorgeous! That lacy brocade folder is just perfect for the contrast of color, and I like that elegant "Believe" sentiment. BTW, I don't miss those days of little ones waking up early...mine are 8 & 11 and I have to roll them out of bed, still snoring! Thanks for playing with us at HSS, I always enjoy your projects :) Erika

  8. I really didn't think I needed another folder...but I just might ;) I love this card and that folder is beautiful with this technique. Thanks for playing with us at HSS.
