Embossing Techniques

Y’all know how much I Love embossing!!
Heat Embossing a sentiment
Running paper through your die cutting machine with an embossing folder
Embossing die cuts. 
And cutting out a die and glueing it to cardstock to do faux embossing. 

Here are a few cards using embossing techniques

The background is embossed with the Time Worn Type 3D
and I die cut some tags from Tailor Made Tags and glued pieces of the large die from the detailed Dahlias dies this is 'faux' embossing.  The colours are Smoky Slate and Magenta Madness.  The leaves are Basic gray.  I used retired Magenta Madness Ribbon.

I used the same Time Worn Type 3D for the background
I die cut some hexagons from the Beautiful dies and embossed them with the Painted Textures 3D embossing folder.  The colours are Bumblebee and Smoky Slate.  The leaves are Basic Gray.
I used the Bumblebee gingham ribbon.

  12. Grateful to Dr. Kham for all his help for my life, My partner was having Herpes simplex Virus and we were planning on getting married early December, When we decided to get ourselves tested first and we found out that my fiancé was HSV2 positive, My fiancé was so unhappy because this was a barrier for us to get married, So i went out to search out a remedy for my partner and it was so surprising how Dr. Kham has been a blessing and healing to the masses, After reading about his work on a blog! immediately contact him and he wrote back to me that my fiancé will be okay and that we will get married this same year, I Couldn't believe him because of what i have heard concerning this virus, After doing all that is needed to be done, I was surprise that after 2week of using his medicine my fiancé went to his hospital doc and was diagnose negative. So what are you still waiting for i know it sound funny but For more info contact him via WhatsApp this will make you get in touch with him directly with this contact number +2348159922297 or Send him an email via But you can kindly Visit his Website: if you need any proof before Reaching out to him.
