Guest Designer for Momo

I am so excited and honored to be asked to be a guest designer for Momo's blog. This week Tuesdays challenge is embossing which for me was a piece of cake as I emboss everything in one way or another. My first project is heat embossing and a card for Operation Write Home which is close to my heart as I have two children who are Marines (Semper Fi). The cardstock is American Crafts, the madalian background was done with Rangers Alcohol inks and then stamped with versamark and Hero Arts stamp then heat embossed with Stampendous black embossing powder. The sentament is from stampin ups Curly Cute set with versamark and white enbossing powder. Also used misc. ribbon from Micheals and gold decocolor paint marker by Marvy for stiching marks, the inside was stamped and embossed also.My second project is dry embossing, I dont remember the name of the paper collection but I do remember I loved it and bought alot of it. I use Martha Stewart border punch and dollar stamps and ribbon out of the dollar bin from Michaels. The embossing was done with an embossing folder from QuicKutz and my trusty Bigkick from Sizzix, cardstock American Crafts.
I hope you enjoy my projects and again thank you Momo for inviting me to take part in your challenge you are truly inspiring.
