Challenge #17 "Quirky Embossing"

Hello...Myriam here with our new challenge post for you,
so hope you can play along with us....

I am sad to tell you that this is my last challenge with the Quirky Crafts team, I am leaving due to other commitments. I have really enjoyed this whole experience with the design team and obviously I learned a lot. I want to say thank you to the team for giving me the opportunity to share my ideas and to have been able to improve with every challenge!!!

Gabriela will be taking my place on the Design Team from challenge 18, she has been a great 2 month Guest Designer, and we will need another 2 month guest designer so if you are interested please let Cazzy know.

Now this week our challenge theme is:
Quirky Embossing
Requirements: Any kind of project with Embossing folders or dry embossing - any type of embossing will do - even fake embossing using die cuts.

Our fabulous sponsors are: 

And the prizes are:

1st place: 4 images from Sweet Pea Stamps
2nd place: 3 images from Limited Runs Stamps
3rd place: 1 images from Robyn's Fetish


Using Sweet Pea Stamps Cherry-Blossom by Helena Reiss Crafts-Too Dotd embossing folder and Frantage embossing powder.

I made an ecological setting for my card, I used the image MOLLY HARRISON LITLLE GIRL from our sponsor  SWEET PEA STAMPS and my tree stump is embossed with an embossing  folder.


For my project I made this tag with the digi Watermelon Margarita
 from our sponsor Limited Runs Stamps. The image was coloured with colors pencils. I used an embossing folder to emboss dots on my background.

For this new challenge, I worked a card. I used a dots embossing design all around the card with not very homogeneous lines. The image that I used: BD Shark Cupcake from Limited Runs. I used the Paper Piecing technique; then I used a wide blue ribbon and a sentiment The sentiment is in Spanish, because I plan to give this card to a special friend.

For my card I used embossing folders with distress inks and  "Art Deco Flower", digi provided by our sponsor Limited Runs.

Hi everyone! For my card, I used "Vintage Cupid", of our sponsor Limited Runs. On my card I used embossing folders with different designs and effects. 

I used Limited Runs Birds on a wire and Bird House, and gave them a background using embossing folders that were free with a magazine, there are three of them, and I enhanced the embossing with chalks.

This beauty is Helena Reis's Dia de los Muertos from Sweet Pea Stamps, I think she is gorgeous! I used a Sizzix Tim Holtz cracked glass embossing folder with Coordinations paper sanded to reveal black.
