Bah Humbug Embossing

Hi folks, it's the first week of my stint as a Guest Designer on the Bah Humbug Blog. The subject this week was Embossing. I managed to make two cards this week! The first card is using a lovely embossing folder from Cuttlebug, of a village scene. I embossed this through my Big Shot, using Coordinations card, sanded it back a bit, and glittered the rooftops. I mounted it onto silver card, and backed it with a lovely Artylicious backing paper from the Season's Greetings CD.
I then stamped a pretty Whiff of Joy stamp of a little girl with a muff, which I coloured with Polychromos pencils, and set in front of the village scene. A piece of tartan effect ribbon and a sentiment finish off my card.

My second card uses a lovely Elusive Images lantern stamp, which is stamped onto a piece of Stampbord, and triple embossed to look like a tile, after it has been coloured. I have then embossed a swirly corner design in black onto my backing paper to tie in with the wrought iron feel of the lantern. I was obviously feeling cold as I made these cards, as both sentiments are sending warm wishes!
Don't forget to pop over to the Bah Humbug Blog to see what everyone else has been up to. Thanks for looking, Judith xx

It's easy to see why we were so excited to have you on the Bah! Humbug! team when you create beauties like these Judith. Love how you have demonstrated two different embossing techniques, with super results. We hope you will enjoy your time with us at Bah! Humbug! as much as we will enjoy having you.

These are both stunners my friend. That CB village folder is my favourite Christmas folder and I made nearly all my cards with it 2 years ago. They didn't come up to this standard though! I love the EI lantern image too.

You embossing techniques are both excellent and truly enhance both your cards.
