Stampin'B's Challenge - Heat & Dry Embossing

Joanne (jojot) was the hostess for this week’s Stampin’B’s DT challenge – to use both Heat and Dry Embossing.

It was fun, especially with this cute set – Owl Occasions by Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps. I stamped Olivia the owl with Chocolate Chip pigment ink and embossed her with clear embossing powder. After cutting out the circle using a round Nestabilities die, I sponged the Creamy Caramel before removing the die, which gives an extra “layer” to the circle. I then double mounted it on River Rock (regular circle) and Chocolate Chip (scalloped circle). The background of River Rock was run through the Cuttlebug, using the Forest Branches embossing folder and then sponged with River Rock. I added the embossed sentiment in a Spellbinders Double-ended Tag and a ribbon; and I was done.

Sweet 'n Sassy provided the stamps for this week's and next week's Stampin'B's challenges.
