Retro Rubber Challenge #10 part two...

YAY!  Today is the day to share my Retro Rubber project!  Our challenge this week is all about the emboss!  We are asking you to make a project with embossing powder.  And don’t forget to use stamps older than a year.


My project is made from an old ippity set called what matters most.  This set has this beautiful wrought iron cross that I thought would look gorgeous when I embossed it.  And I was right! 3 (640x554)

I started off by stamping the cross with versamark on PTI soft stone CS.  I embossed using black embossing powder and then cut out the image using the MFT pierced ovals.  I embossed the sentiment in black as well. 4 (640x350)

I took my embossing a bit further by using the beautifully baroque embossing folder.  Please note that embossing folders do not meet the challenge requirements.  I just thought it would add the right texture to my card.  I added some ribbon and I was done.  Simple but beautiful.

Be sure to join us in this challenge – just get out your embossing powder and your heat gun and get to work!  You can link up your awesome projects HERE.  (Remember to use stamps older than a year!)

Thanks for stopping by today!

Supplies:  CS:  SU! blushing bride.  PTI soft stone.  Stamps:  Ippity what matters most.  Other:  SU! black embossing powder.  SU! beautifully baroque embossing folder.  MFT pierced ovals.  Blushing bride ribbon.

Simple and beautiful is right! I like to add the extra touch of embossing with folders as well. The cross and sentiment are wonderful.
