Hello! Yes, you read correctly - dies aren't just for die cutting, they can be used to emboss too!
That is what I have done using the Embossing Mats that have just been made available in our new catalogue. It feels like I have a whole lot of new things to play with when in fact I am just using the dies I already have in a new way. What a bonus bargain! These Embossing Mats are a must have item in your toolbox - you won't regret it!
So, I knew I wanted to make a card that uses this technique to emboss with dies. I even knew what dies I will use. But then, when it comes to colours - what a dilemma!!!! Do you know that at Stampin' Up! we have 50 colours to choose from (excluding black, white and vanilla)? There are a variety of ways to arrive at a selection of colours to use. In this instance, I got my inspiration from the CAS Colour & Sketch Challenge #275
I really like how well it has turned out - the colours paired with Whisper White just add a real crispness and vibrance to the card. Thank you Wei from CAS for the colour combo.
Thanks for stopping by, and may you have a stampin' fun weekend!
