Embossing Blog Hop & a Card

Hi guys! I just finished a blog hop. I do a lot of blog hopping just to get inspired by the various DT and to get ideas of how to do techniques. This particular blog hop is all about embossing -- both heat embossing and dry embosssing. I got my own Cuttlebug last November and it's been one of the best gifts ever! I love love love the textures and the look it gives to a card. I do a lot of Clean & Simple card making (they're easily my favourites)...and the Cuttlebug folders just make those cards look so much more. :)

So here's a hop all about Cuttlebugging -- and new techniques to try with the folders. Whether it's just plain Cuttlebugging, adding ink to the folder or chalking up the Cuttlebug textures -- there's so many ideas! So hop on over to Carson's Creations blog...and get some inspiration and a bit of education (if you're new to the Cuttlebug like I am). Have fun! (there's lots of prizes to sign up for along the hop, just for an added bonus). :)

Anyways, I decided to make a card for the challenge of the hop. The challenge is this:

Create a new project (a card, layout, altered art, etc.) using either dry or heat embossing (or both) Let us know if you used a technique you learned from this hop and which one.

and of course there's a prize as well:



I decided to simply use the Cuttlebug to give an embellishment a "texture". This is a baby card I made. I love making these little carriages -- they're so simple, and they look adorable! :)

I also added glue dots to the back to lift it a little...to give it extra dimension:

Thanks for dropping by...I love hearing what you have to say. :)
