More Embossing....

Here are 2 cards created for todays SCS color challenge - Always Artichoke and Groovy Guava. I included heat embossing on both of these cards as well.
First card was done with colored pigment inks from Colorbox and Ranger Ancient Gold embossing powder in "Enchanted Gold" - it is gold with irridescent glitter mixed in - really cool stuff! I embossed the flowers, the green flourish/stem and the frame. I attached the sentiment with a couple pieces of hodgepodge hardware.
**** on a side note..... my brand new tin of hodgepodge hardware took a header off the table and all over the floor.... now I have a HUGE mess to clean up!***
The second card was made with the Country Blessings stamp set that was featured in Country Living last year. I embossed the sentiment with clear embossing powder (I used chocolate chip craft ink to stamp the image). The leaves and acorns were done with Prisma Pencils.
Blog Candy Challenge!!!
I have a Matte Pack of K&Company Amy Butler paper to give away for this week's Blog Candy Challenge. I'm looking for cards made using Heat Embossing - as much as or little as you want to use! Just leave a comment with a link to your card and you'll be entered to win the Matte Pack.
Challenge will end next Tuesday (September 11). I hope to put the cards into a gallery for everyone to view - just to keep in mind when entering this challenge.
Thanks for reading!

I love your cards! Will have to pull the embossing stuff out, it's been packed away for a while and I tend to think of another option because it's such a hassle to get it unpacked and set up!

As for your challenge, here is a link to a Xmas project where I have embossed on paper and on chipboard. The English version is after the French.
Thank you for putting together a challenge.

Your blog is great! Thanks for sharing with us. Here's a link to my card I made a couple weeks ago. There's black embossing on the flower and on the swirl accents. http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/636975?cat=500&ppuser=68495
Happy Friday!

Can't get enough of your cards. (and I'm obsessed with heat embossing; I actually wore out a heat gun in less than a year. Here's my project that uses lots of embossing.Hope the long link works if not here's my blog (the entry is called Vampire tendencies: gift card totes).

Thanks! Mel

P.s if you're interested comment for my blog candy :0)

Your card is simply beautiful! TFS....I have a card that I embossed on but it's not what I would call beautiful...its more on the CREEPY side! I hope you like it.
