MU#5 May 6 Embossing (Dry or Heat) Nature Theme

Lisa here! Guess what? Yep, thats right! Its Friday and time for another Friday Mashup challenge! I am SO excited to bring this weeks challenge to you all. I live in Alaska and everyday I marvel at the extreme nature that surrounds me. I can be found outdoors all year round, just enjoying every thing Mother Nature has for us here. So this week I want all of you to make nature inspired cards OR just make us a card with some form of embossing on it, as I'm a big fan of embossing also. So here we go:

1. Make a card inspired by nature

2. Make a card with embossing on it somewhere

3. MASH it all up and create a nature card that uses embossing somewhere on it!

Here is the card I came up with it. Its TOTALLY me...the trees, the colors and of course, my favorite, moose! As you can see I MASHed it up and did both nature and embossing, dry and heat. The card base is embossed with the CB folder Distressed Stripes, and then I used a copper color to heat emboss the moose.

Now head over to The Friday Mashup blog and link up your card, and dont forget to go visit the other design team members and leave some love for them. Also, leave some love for the other folks who join in on the challenge!



  1. Hi Lisa, I love your Moose card! You must have been so happy when you saw what the challenge was this week!

  2. Lisa, thank you for such an inspiring challenge this week. I really like your masculine card, the colours are brilliant together. Cheers, Kasey ~ in Oz

  3. I seriously love this!! Hubby and I are traveling west for vacation...lots of national parks. This gets me in the mood for the great outdoors!

    Love that moose!! ;-)

  4. Great challenge Lisa! This is one of my favorite sets and I never thought about embossing the moose. I'm going to have to dig it out now! Love that EF too!
