embossing across the miles!

today, i'm over on the sweet stamp shop blog!! go check it out! :)
and while you're at it - check out their design team search here!! 

ok, so today, my cards all feature some sort of embossing!!

* heat embossing
* dry embossing
* embossing paste

so much fun!
what's your favorite type of embossing? i have to say...i'm sort of smitten with embossing paste right now! i can't help it! there are so many possibilities!! ha ha!!

here's my card using embossing paste:

love it!! that bright pink really POPS on the white-on-white background! the state image is from the across the miles stamp set (really really LOOOOVE that set!!).
and the sentiment was also heat embossed (double embossing point here! lol!) using the alpha tabs stamp set! (another FAVORITE!!).

the tabs were all popped up and added to the state image! with a little geo tag pointing to my state! lol!

my next card also using heat embossing - love it!!!

i heat embossed the images in clear onto some watercolor paper! then i colored it in roughly with some super fun distress marker colors! :)
i used the same colors for the popped up '500' (which is from the numbers - symbols stamp set!)

i looooove this card! that song totally gets stuck in my head all of the time!! ha ha!! perfect for a states image! 

my last card is one that uses dry embossing!

i just looooooooooove woodgrains!! and i think it adds SO much texture! 
i stamped the image over some fun patterned paper and then again in a bright pink. then i fussy cut out the state of the recipient and my state and drew on some faces, to add a bit of whimsy!! :)

the sentiment is from the newly released just the basics stamp set!

and those are my cards!
hope they inspired you! and if you so desire, i shared a coupon code over on the sweet stamp shop blog too!! :)
