Prettie Embossed Wednesday

Welcome to Prettie Wednesday!! Today our challenge comes from Heather - we are to emboss, either heat or dry embossing, or if you are like me . . . do both!!  This week's specials (which means they are 20% off) are Apple of My Eye and Apple of My Eye Scripture.  Hopefully you are coming here from Christie's blog so that you don't miss a thing!

For my card I used the scripture verse which was stamped in black ink.  I then stamped a solid image apple stamp in Versamark ink over the word apple and embossed it with clear embossing powder.  Once that cooled, I sponged on some red ink around the edges to make the embossed apple more pronounced - I think it looks kinda neat!

The cardbase was also dry embossed using a Quickutz Polka Dot embossing folder (I'm sort of on a polka dot kick lately, have you noticed?). 

We go back to the Prettie Peeks tomorrow - all leading up to the big release on March 1st so be sure to check in with the Prettie Girls all week!  Now, it's time to hop over to Jana's blog for her embossed goodies!! Have a great day!

Cardstock: Pure Poppy, True Black, Vintage Cream (Papertrey Ink), Patterned Paper:  Report Card (October Afternoon), Stamps: Apple of My Eye Scripture (Paper Pretties), solid apple from 3 Step School Days (Kitchen Sink Stamps), Ink:  Black, Versamark, Accessories: Clear Embossing Powder (SU!), Pure Poppy ribbon, Vintage Button, Black Felt, Scalloped die (Papertrey Ink), Rhintestones (Kaiser), Nestabilities, Polka Dot embossing folder (Quickutz), Baker's Twine (Say It With Letters)
