Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge 42 :: Emboss It

Good Morning Peachy Friends! I hope you are all enjoying the holiday spirit and soaking up every creative moment you can. We have a very exciting post today so please, be sure to grab your java or tea and enjoy all the amazing creations our Design Team has created for you! And don't forget to check out the prizes at the bottom that you'll be playing along for - we're throwing in an extra prize if we make it over 100 entries!!

Before we move on to the next challenge, I'd like to congratulate our winner from Challenge #41!

Random.org chose... 13. K Andrew!!!
Yippee! Please email me to claim your prize! ;)
Thank you SO much to everyone who played along in this challenge!

And now, onto the next one...
**********************************************************************
THE CHALLENGE:
Create a card or layout using an EMBOSSING technique
You can either HEAT emboss or DRY emboss {or both if you wanna be fancy}
There are no limitations, but if you have Peachy Keen Stamps,
you are encouraged to use them!
Please link your blog post URL to Mr. Linky before December 21st.
(the actual posting closes 12/20 11:59 p.m. PST)
We'll use Random.org to generate our RANDOM WINNER (only one entry per person, please) on 12/20 to receive the prize package posted after all the DT submissions!

If you've never heat embossed before, and want to give it a go, here is a quick tutorial I found online. Just Google "Basic Heat Embossing Instructions" and a lot of tutorials pop up! It's really fun once you start playing around and trying different colors/images!

I read a great tip in Paper Crafts magazine this month from Kelly Marie Alvarez - use a dryer sheet & rub over your cardstock before stamping to remove any static. This way the embossing powder will only stick to the ink! Thought that was pretty nifty!

Now for our beautiful DT samples - they do such an amazing job!! Please visit their blogs to see which stamps they used to created their projects!

Here are the two stamp sets you'll be playing along for:
(One lucky winner will receive both sets!)


As an added holiday treat, if we make it over 100 entries, we'll also give away a 12 piece Copic Ciao set (valued at over $50.00) to another lucky random winner!

Good Luck Everyone, we can't wait to see your creations!!!
