Like A Boss!

Welcome to my blog and the Like A Boss Blog Hop!  You are in for a SUPER treat today!  This hop is all about all forms!

Our short (but bossy) hop runs in a circle, so just keep reading and clicking on the next blogger's link and you will be heading in the right direction.  :)

My project involves both dry AND heat embossing.  I really don't know which one I prefer!

Just in case you aren't the bossy type...this is an example of dry embossing supplies...creating a texture on cardstock when you run a plastic embossing folder through a machine such as the Sizzix Big Shot...

AND this is an example of heat embossing supplies...creating a shiny raised image by stamping with Versamark Ink, sprinkling with embossing powder, and then heating with a heating tool until it changes...

Craft Heater
You can see the heat embossing on the blue swirls in this snippet of my adult coloring book page in this close-up.  I used a fine line glue pen to outline them and then sprinkled with a mixture of clear embossing powder and prisma glitter (a retired CTMH super-fine glitter.)  I dry embossed a piece of White Daisy CS with the Floral Embossing Folder for the panel behind it...

Let's not forget all that SWEET Shimmer Trim I managed to use--the colors just matched all the coloring with my ShinHan markers SO WELL!  I used Coral, Aqua, and Green...along with a beautiful sentiment from the Happy to Be Friends My Acrylix stamp set and the Florence Sequins.

Which kind of embossing do YOU enjoy most?
