Humble Pie Challenge : Dry Embossing Post #2 for today!! (Don't forget to keep scrolling down for the 1st!!)

My goodness, can you believe it is December 11 already?? Only two weeks until Christmas...are you ready? If not, you should probably kick it into high gear!

I've been busy with so many projects lately, that I was able to post TWICE today! Under this post, you will find some cards and information on a fundraiser we've been holding at our church. Feel free to take a gander at that post while you are here! (although, maybe grab a coffee first!)

Well, with another Friday comes another Humble Pie challenge! This week we are looking for projects featuring dry embossing. For this, I pulled out my trusty Cuttlebug. This is a tool I highly recommend adding to your crafting room. I chose this cute little snowman from the latest Humble Pie release. Remember, the only place you can find Humble Pie stamps in at The Town Scrapper.




I stamped the snowman...or perhaps it's a snowgirl in this case!...on Neenah cardstock and coloured her with Copic markers. The background was embossed with the Swiss Dots folder and highlighted with blue ink. That Polar White Flower Soft somehow found it's way onto this card too! lol I also used some Spellbinders Labels to cut out my focal mats. Spellbinders are another of my favourites! Not only do they cut, but they also emboss your paper and can act as a stencil too. The purple strip of Bazzil Bling (which was also used as the card base) was embossed with the Swirls folder. The DP is from a Christmas DCWV stack. The sentiment was printed off my computer. As a finishing touch, I added some flat-backed rhinestones for a bit of bling.



So, hop on over to Humble Pie and link up your project for a chance to win a great prize. You do not have to use a Humble Pie image, but if you do have them then we'd love to see them!

Have a fantastic Friday!
