Fall Colored Embossing for Friday Mashup

Happy Friday! I don't know about you all but this week seemed to drag on forever and I am SO happy to see the weekend right around the corner!

Its time for another Friday Mashup and this week Heidi is our hostess. She would like us to create a project using the colors Hello Honey, Baked Brown Sugar and Tangelo Twist and then add to our project by giving the Iron Off Embossing Technique a try.

I don't know what I did wrong but I could not get the iron off part to go my way. Each time I tried it I ended up with a smeared, ugly mess. Therefore you'll see my sentiment is embossed, with the glossy finish. If you do the technique right your embossed piece will be a nice matte finish!

I saw the new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and used that as my starting point since this whole project had me stumped for some reason. I grabbed the Work of Art set and used Hello Honey and Tangelo Twist to create a bit of a sunset behind my trees from Lovely As a Tree, that I stamped in Baked Brown Sugar. I stamped the Hardwood background stamp in Baked Brown Sugar on a Hello Honey card base and the sentiment is embossed in Whisper White on a circle of Baked Brown Sugar. The image panel and circle were both popped up with dimensionals.

Head over to The Friday Mashup blog to see how the other DT members did not fail at the technique like I did :), and then play along with us. Go check out Freshly Made Sketches also!

  1. Ironed off or not, I think this looks pretty fantastic! I love all the texture from the hardwood background and the swooshes of color. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!
