Challenge #35: Emboss It!

Hello Users!

We are excited to have you back for another challenge!  This time, please make a project that has some form of embossing on it!  Heat, paper, stylus, whatever! 

***REMEMBER: All of our challenges call for you to use your hoarded supplies! A challenge requirement is to tell us in your post what you used!***

Please link your creation using Inlinkz by Friday July 20th. No blog? No problem! Just use keyword USE035 when uploading to an online gallery and leave us a direct link so we can find your creation. (Linking tips are at the bottom of the post!)

Please make sure to mention you are playing along with a Use It Tuesday challenge (a link is great too!) so we know you are participating.

As always, one lucky participant will be randomly chosen to be a featured guest designer in an upcoming challenge!

Here is a little inspiration to get you started:

Caroli told me the title means 'little friend'...which is exactly how I think of my hoarded supplies!  So glad she used her left overs from her Echo Park paper to make this fun layout!  Her embossing is not just on the title...she embossed those buttons, too.  They used to be clear!  Genius!

Cathy had a seed planted with our challenge!  All the background flowers are heat embossed, she also embossed the card with an old folder and...she made that flower with some kraft paper!  Simply stunning!

Danielle turned up the heat (gun, that is!) to make this sentimental layout!  The chevrons and word 'forever' are all done in white embossing powder.  She dressed it up with hoarded buttons, scrappers floss, brads, eyelets, and flowers from her Sassafras stash.  Isn't this sweet?!

Haven used her hoarded ribbon, cardstock, and alphabet letters to make this card.  Fess up, users...how many of you have hoarded letter stickers?!  Haven also used her Diamond Plate embossing folder to not only emboss the paper, but the foil that is over it!  Awesomeness!

Heather doubled up on her card as well, so you surely can't say she 'moosed' up the challenge!  The embossing folder had never been used (still had the plastic on it!) and she bought that colored embossing powder as a 'must have' item ages ago.  Glad it found some use and she did not feel that buying it was a moose-take!

Marjolaine got this scrapbook kit back in 2004!  Who can beat that?!  She was able to pair it with left over pieces of kits she opened 3 years ago.  Oh Baby!  Way to use it up on such a sweet double page layout!

Stephanie used 'faux' embossing by punching out circles to make this stunner, but there is nothing faux-pas about using her stash of papers, an old celebrate tag, and buttons!

Tammy pulled out a dusty ol' cuttlebug embossing folder (I bet you have the EXACT some one in your drawer, too...don't you?!) to make this hippo-licious card!  She paired it with an image and sentiment received in a swap ages ago, as well as some old bling, cardstock and ribbon.  Hip-Hip-Horray for using that stash!

Tess made this gorgeous card using everything from her stash but the ribbon!  The papers are all 2-3 years old and the arrow is 3 years old!  She loves it so much she just might hoard it! HA!  That would be a good idea for a new challenge blog!  :)

Victoria pulled out her starter pack of Sizzix embossing plates to make this card bloom with awesomeness!  She also pulled out her Stampin Up flower punch (garage sale find!) and her stack of hoarded Costco paper to complete the look!

And we are thrilled to have Holly designing for us this week!  She won Challenge #33 and came up with a real winner for this week, too!  Look at this darling shadow box she made from her hoarded paper!  She embossed the leaves and the font.  Holly, this is amazing!  Thank you so much for designing for us!

We can't wait to see what you create! Now go Use It!!
