You're not the (em)boss of me

Lythan's dare this week has such a fun title, 'cept that it keeps making me sing this...

Perhaps that was the intention lol....

Anyhoo...

Hi there playmates, its Lythan here!

Doing these dares is such a joy. We all love seeing what you create so much. The way that you have taken up and run with both the Celestial dare and the Midweek extra this week has just been awesome.

As a reward - and as I was so strict last time I set a dare - here is a nice broad theme to get your creative juices flowing.
Embossing.
Dry embossing with a light box or with a die cutting machine.
Using embossing powders or triple embossing.
Using pre-embossed papers.
Embossing with found items.
Just have fun playing!


And as I can't resist being a little (em)bossy - why not see if you can get more than one emboss technique on your card?


Fantastic to have a new guest designer this week - Leo, check out her blog, she has the most yummy cards there and... we have a bonus card from our Guest Designer Kirsty. Brilliant.

And on to my card, Jared kindly emptied my scant supply of embossing powder into a tea cup a while back, christening it 'Sugar'. Don't have any of those brass stencil thingys, no UTEE either so made an emergency cuttlebug purchase lol...

Paperchase papers and ribbon, inc the Owl and Leaves that I cut out :) Bazzill Brad and Primas which came already embossed :) Does that count as more than one embossed bit?... from Rachie's shop, Queen & Co Sequins, and of course, my new embossing folder to make the background.

My 'B' plates shattered last week so embossing using the Cuttlebug was a little tricky, just to say that the Customer Service from Provocraft for those of us in the UK is shabby, but that is a whole other story as they say!

Had some good exciting crafty news last night aha I *lubs* secrets lol.

TFL!

and your not my mom....

I'm so sorry I forced you to spend money on that folder. It looks really good though. And I will allow pre embossed things for this dare (she says enjoying the power) speshly as I'm not the boss of you...

Hi Jo :)

Love this card - little owly is sooo cute! And that embossing plate is great - so neeeed a CB!!

I agree re Provocraft CS in the UK - apparently they are first rate in the US but we here have to deal with a crappy distributor! (for my Cricut)

Rant over and out :)

Lovely card, Jo - I love looking at all the dare cards (perhaps one day I'll join in).

Love this card Jo - that naughty Lythan made me go and buy one too - or was it revisiting the nasty shapeboss that made me do it?
