Tickled Pink Stamps Christmas Challenge #6 - Embossing

Christmas is in the air today even if it is the first day of August! I'm back with another holiday card, this time for Tickled Pink Stamps Challenges Christmas Challenge. This month we are looking for embossing on your projects. It could be dry embossing or heat embossing. Either or both is fine and the choice it up to you! Heat embossing has never been one of my favorites so I decided to use dry embossing. My trusty Cuttlebug gets lots of use with my collection of embossing folders so I selected the snowflake one for the die cut mat behind my image. I also used a snowflake border punch by Fiskars that has an embossed element.

My image is Lil Christmas Frankie from Tickled Pink Stamps. He's clearly an elf, but he reminds me of Jack Frost too for some reason. I colored him with my Copics and Prismacolor Art Markers and fussy cut him before using 3D dots to adhere him to my card. Of course I had to add some bling and some hardware and couldn't resist a punched snowflake with a mulberry paper rose center.

You have all month to play along with the Christmas challenge. This challenge is ONLY for Tickled Pink Stamps images. Those include Lil Lolitas and Lil Lads, Lil Pinkettes, Pink Pets, and Cherrie. The prize is 2 rubber or 4 digital TPS images of your choice! Feeling in the Christmasy mood now? lol

My layout is the 2nd Pink {Ink} Sketch Challenge by the fabulous Kellie Winnell. This is a brand new challenge which started last month. Kellie is also sponsoring the challenge this fortnight so as owner of Tickled Pink Stamps she has a fabulous prize for the sketch winner - 3 rubber or digital images of your choice PLUS a sentiment set and matching die! How amazing is that?! This challenge is open to images of all brands. If you'd like to join in the fun, Sketch #2 can be found here.

Wish me luck staying awake today. I was up far to late with my crafty doings, and I may need extra caffeine to make it through! I have a very busy week in front of me so stay tuned for more projects from both TPS and SSD! Thanks for stopping by.... I appreciate the visit and all comments are gratefully received!
