Shopping our Stash #42 - Embossing

I found this week's Shopping our Stash challenge nice & easy. Hooray for that, because I found myself frustrated with a lot of my creating this week!

Supplies: paper & stickers from K&Co;
gemstone strip from $store;
cuttlebug embossing folder

I think this technique is called embedded embossing? Not sure. I adhered the letters & then ran the panel through the Cuttlebug, so that the letters are embossed as well. I'm surprised I had the letters I needed to spell anything, because that sheet of letter stickers has been around a long time, as have the gem strips. Used the whole package too, so yay me!
As always the Shopping our Stash challenge ends on Monday afternoon, so you've still time to get yourself linked up over there!

I think that is what it's called and I love it although I never remember to use it! LOL! Diggin' the letter stickers and those are some bad ass gem strips!

That is a super cool look! I don't think I've ever seen embossed alpha stickers before--I love it. Love the cheerful colors, too!

Now that's a new technique to me...... Looks awesome!
Sheets of alphabet stickers are useless after a while unless you can think of folks with obscure names to spell on a card!
Love the funky colours and bling :0)
