Practical Scrappers Embossing Challenge

Practical Scrappers has something fun in store for you this week! In fact, it's so much fun that I can't imagine why anyone wouldn't want to create a fabulous project and join us for this super-sweet embossing challenge.  Whether you like to emboss stamps, dry emboss or something in between, get out your paper, glue and embossing folders or powders and join us at Practical Scrappers!

I started this project by creating some pretty poppies inspired by Lisa Johnson a Designer for Papertrey Ink (my all-time favorite store for paper, stamps and even dies I use in my Cuttlebug!).  Lisa provided an excellent tutorial so you can make these sweet flowers, it is on her blog right here. I opted to use gems instead of ribbon as the flower centers... a small difference from the actual tutorial. I loved how these blossoms turned out and plan to use them in other projects again and again!  In fact, I loved Lisa's project so much I even ordered the leaf ribbon from Papertrey Ink that you can find right here and as shown below on this close-up shot of the flowers and ribbon.

Now, since this was actually an embossing challenge and not a flower challenge (grin), I did a lot of dry embossing with my Cuttlebug and used several different embossing folders.  I even embossed the flower blossoms before I used Lisa's technique to create them!

You've still got plenty of time to join us at Practical Scrapper's for this challenge... hope to see you there! I'm one of the three Designers who will select the winner for this week's challenge and I simply can't wait to see what you all design.  For more inspiration and ideas by all the Designers, visit Practical Scrappers!
