Leave a Good Impression!

It's a new month and CropStop has a new product highlight...Embossing! During the month of June, the CropStop Creative Team will inspire you with their embossing projects. We will be giving away our usual Gift Certificate prizes weekly, but have some of these awesome personally autographed embossing folders to give away each week also!

All challenges during the month of June will have an added plus with them! Use embossing on your project and have the opportunity to win a Tim Holtz, personally autographed embossing folder each week that you enter! At the end of June, CropStop will put all of the month's entries into the pot and draw one random winner to receive a colossoal embossing folder prize!

Don't miss out on our June product highlight...embossing!!

Now, on to this week's sketch challenge plus! Gloria has provided us with another fab sketch. Add some embossing to your project...embossing folders, embossed dies, dry embossing. Whatever strikes your fancy. Visit the CropStop Challenge Blog for entry rules and link.

Here is my project using Gloria's fab sketch! Some of the colors look a little off, but they seriously do match! The black braided trim looks navy and the turquoise poinsettia under the rose looks much lighter than it actually is.

I used my Spellbinder Grand Label Four Die in place of the rectangle on the sketch. The different sized labels were embossed separately with a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder from the "Love is in the air" set. I stacked them using pop dots, aligning the top label embossing with that on the matted label. Other products used were Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante papers, Ranger Tea Dye Distress Ink, Memento Tuxedo Black Ink,

Here is a close up of the two aligned and embossed labels stacked using pop dots.
I added a Stampin' Up Sentiment stamped tag, Queen & Co. Pearls, Making Memory Ornamental Brad, Prima Peach Rose and Turquoise Poinsettia under it as leaves.

I really like what you did with the sketch, changing the square shape to a rectangle and your colour scheme is GORGEOUS!
