Always Fun Challenges - Dry Embossing

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How was your weekend? We had lots of time to catch up on jobs. I think I mentioned the garden a while back it has been sadly neglected so we are still trying to claim it back. We did have a lovely time in Glasgow there is lots to see there.

The start of the new week sees the start of the new challenge at Always Fun Challenges. The theme this time is Dry Embossing. Now I have had one of the 3d Embossing folders from Creative Expressions for sometime now and I had never used it. So this seemed like the ideal opportunity.

This is the Ornate Lace Embossing folder from Crafter's Companion. I must admit that I had to experiment a bit to get it to work with my Platinum Die Cutting machine. I used a piece of white card that I then inked with some Distress Oxides. 

Click on the logo and you will be taken to the Challenge blog. 

Now I have had the Star Flower Leaves dies from John Next Door for a while. When I saw the Star Flowers were back in stock I had to order them. 

This is a Crafter's Companion sentiment die. 

Have a great week. This week I start invigilating at our local secondary school. It will be strange going to work again. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Happy Crafting
