Hi All, this month I have the honor of guest DT on Gloria Stengel's Craft Hoarders Anonymous challenge Gloria has a fun challenge using our hoarded items, if you're like me you should have plenty of of those! I hope you pop over and meet Gloria and her talented design team they are such a sweet group, I am you will love them, so come join the fun. Thank you Gloria for inviting me to be a part of this.
Challenge #12 Who's the Boss?Show some embossing on your project. You can use dry embossing or heat embossing. You can use an embossing folder or a stencil. You can emboss with embossing paste or embossing powder. You can even create something with ultra-thick embossing enamel. You probably have some sort of embossing apparatus in your hoard! Pull these embossing tools out and put them to use!
This was really fun, I cut out a stencil with my KNK Zing using one of Monica's Creative backgrounds, (can you believe I hoard cut files too!) I smeared on some hoarded embossing paste onto black card stock, then used some of my hoarded Recollections embossing powder with glitter in it. Heated it up and I have this really cool background. The image is an old one from Gecko Galz called Between the Lines. I used my Perfect Paper Crafting Mini Rulers to get the perfect black background trim around my image. The pearls on a roll were purchased at Christmas last year and the little black satin bow with a pearl was from My Craft store customer garage sale 1 year ago! How funny is that, it was put in the garage sale because someone hoarded it before me and I bought it and added it to my hoard! It really feels good to start using up some of my stash.
It would be great if you could join in at Gloria Stengel's Craft Hoarders Anonymous challenge Who's the Boss. Great way to push yourself to use up some of that hoarded stash., (she has some awesome prizes) and have some fun while your at it too.
That's it for today, thanks for looking. ~Diane
