HSS #85- Impress Us!

I love, love, love our challenge this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments! We want you to pull out those embossing supplies and "Impress Us!"


I had to do my most favorite technique as of late, inking the striped embossing folder and making gingham! I can't get enough of this technique! I love gingham and use it a lot in decorating. I am so happy that now I can make it in any pretty SU color I want!

Stamps: Pursuit of Happiness, Extreme Elements
Ink and Paper: Melon Mambo, Basic Black, Basic Grey, Whisper White
Other: Big Shot, Striped Embossing Folder, Lots of Dots Embossing Folder, Melon Mambo Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, Modern Label Punch, Medium Oval Punch, Basic Rhinestones, Scallop Border Punch

Ok ladies- now it's your turn to IMPRESS US! I can't wait to see what you come up with!

  3. Love the gingham. I have this folder and have yet to use it. THIS technique might be the thing to do it. Love your color choices too! The pink really pops against the black.
