Embossing Is Back (Technique Blog Hop)

For the Technique Blog Hop this month, we are using our embossing powders and showing that Embossing is Back with Close To My Heart.  This is one of several "technique tips" throughout the Annual Inspirations book.   With a stamp set and a color from the CTMH collection of embossing powders, you can create intricate detail on all your projects. 


If you arrived from Melissa's Heartfelt Sentiments blog, then follow along with the link at the bottom of this post to continue the Technique Blog Hop

Embossing is one of my favorite stamping techniques and I always love seeing the nice, shiny texture it produces.  This sweet bird from the Paper Bird stamp set was embossed using our White embossing powder onto a piece of patterned paper from the Taste of Summer kit.  The flowered paper is also from the National Scrapbooking Month special Taste of Summer packet which will be available beginning May 1.  Inspiration for the design of the card was the Heart 2 Heart Challenge Sketch 201504.
