Monday Funday #4 Embossing

Hi Everyone; hoping you all had a great weekend..  I did, but with only have one day off, it's not much of a weekend.. But I did get quite a few images colored up, so that made it a little better. But enough about me I want to say  welcome to our 4th Monday Fun day over at the Farm Fresh Challenge blog.. I hope that you are "all" enjoying seeing my creations as I am still over the "moon" as being a Design Team member.

Our theme this week is>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>  EMBOSSING >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> 
Dry or Heat, it's all up to you!!!
I just loved this challenge, because it took me out my "comfort zone" as far as coloring...I did not do any coloring for either of my cards. I created these two very simple but really cute (I think) "gift cards". The perfect little note card to use as a card by it self or it can be used on top of a  gift with a cute little note inside.
 For both my cards I used the newest  Clear stamp set from The Greeting Farm. "Clear Christmas".. I fell in love with this the moment I saw it..  This first card is a 3x 3 1/2 card. that I stamped using this "gorgeous" Christmas tree from the set. I used Verasmark ink and some "Detailed White embossing powder from Stampendious. Then set with my Martha Stewart heat gun.
For my second card I took it up a "notch".. But still very simple and easy to make. This card measured at 
3 1/4 x 3 1/2. I have had a pack of "vellum" card stock from PTI for a long time, but never took the steps to use them.. So this was perfect to try with my something new. Image is also from the "Clear Christmas" set. total of 11 stamps. I stamped on the vellum with my "versamark" ink pad and embossed with the same embossing powder.. ( Not too bad for my first try.. right??? :0))))
Ok so now it's your turn. I would love for you ALL to play along with this one.. and remember, it's not only "heat" embossing, so pull out those cuttle bugs, Suzzzix, and Nesti and if it's something new for you then "challenge" our self.. You have all week to play along.
Just link your cards to Linky  at the bottom of the post of the blog page with a link back to your blog; or you can post them in either of our gallery..
