Supplies used: SU Fifth Avenue Floral and Thoughts and Prayers stamp sets. Blue Bayou, Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, White CS. Chocolate Chip and Baja Breeze ink. Soft Sky DS Ribbon, Simple Flower Embosslit, Texture Plates Kit #4, Fiskars border punch, large half-back faux pearl from SU Pretties kit.Here's my Wednesday Belli Challenge post! This week Chris challenged us to use embossing on our cards. So this was a good opportunity to try out a couple of the new embossing gadgets from Stampin Up! I used the Simple Flower Embosslits die and the diamond design from the Textured Plates Kit #4. The Embosslits die is kinda cool because it cuts the shape at the same time it's embossing it. This is different (and easier!) than the Cuttlebug dies that come with coordinating folders so you can emboss them after you've cut them. The Textured Plates, on the other hand, don't emboss as deeply as the Cuttlebug folders. However, I tried spritzing the CS first with water before I ran it through my Big Shot (a tip I read on SCS) and I actually got a pretty decent impression. The Textured Plates aren't intended to emboss like the folders though, so I'm thinking these work as good as their supposed to. I like them a lot more than I thought I would! The Belli DT created more fun cards using embossing!! Check out the new Creative Belli Blog and see what the other gals did!!
