A new to me challenge blog that I came across from Buddy Bonnie’s entries so I decided to give it a whirl. What a great idea to be inspired and challenged to use all of those embossing folders that are in my stash. This challenge is an Anything Goes Embossing with a Twist of Pink. I wanted to make my embossed panel the star of the card so I used a SimonSaysStamp 3D Kaleidoscope embossing folder that is very detailed. I die cut a piece of heavy weight pink cardstock then lightly sprayed it with water and ran it through my Big Shot. The detail is pretty awesome. I did CASE a card I saw on the Facebook group Share Handmade Kindness but unfortunately I didn’t notate the maker to give credit. From there I constructed and deconstructed what to do next multiple times adding a black layer then removing it, trying to get a clean heat embossed sentiment and on and on. So I settled with a simple Script Hello die from SSS, stamped “there” from Hero Arts Stamp & Cut Floral set and a Tim Holtz Sizzix Garden Greens leaf that was previously cut out but not used. Without that black layer, the card seemed to have been missing something so I lightly stenciled pink on a Fun Stampers Journey Splash Zone stencil. Hard to see but it adds a little background detail….well, at least to me.
Thanks Darlene and Diane for another fun challenge blog.
Thanks for stopping in for a peek. I appreciate you and your time. Take care and be safe.

Lovely card! The 3D folders give so much dimension.
Wow! The dimension is awesome and has huge visual impact.
WOW!!! This is so beautiful. Love the texture and the pink, black & white combo is so striking.
I’m with everyone else on your embossed background being amazing. I love how you let that shine and didn’t overwhelm it with too much. The sentiment and leaves and perfect. Great idea and way of bringing it to life.
Incredible dimension from that folder, definitely steals the show! Thank you for joining us at Can You Handle the Pressure!
