Happy Hearts Day...

As a proud SINGLE LADY...I'm sending my LUVVVVV to all my family and friends around the world today.  Thanks for all the LUV and friendship through the years!!! 

This week at Woodware USA the theme is EMBOSSING...Any way you choose it!  You can use dry embossing, wet embossing, and even embossing STICKERS like the ones you can find at Woodware USA and in Europe.  Here are a few cards I made for the challenge.  Of course, they are full of LUVVVVVV...

My first card is FULL of yummy goodness I have been loving to work with and has VERY LITTLE stamping (only the sentiment is stamped with Versafine Onyx and clear embossed).  It is created using a hodge-podge of embellishments and see that dry embossed circle thingie there?  That's from a TESSLER embossing die I picked up at a stamp show.  It's called Gotta LOVE their dies!!!  I just put it through my Cuttlebug and more stylus embossing necessary!
Stamp Set Used:  Circular Greetings
Embossing Die Used by Tessler

Don't you just love that Jolee's key and the yummy patterned paper??? I LOVE it!!!  Gotta add my favorite black bling too!

I felt a bit guilty making the card above...Yes, I did.  After all, this is a WoodwareUSA stamping challenge so I thought it necessary to make a card with MORE stamping so here's my second project: 
Stamp Set Used:  Circular Greetings
This time, I stamped the circular sentiment over and over with Versafine Onyx ink then embossed with this silvery iridescent embossing powder (it's pretty clear, with holographic sparkles) then decided to hand cut some hearts and emboss them with about five layers of the same embossing powder.  They work well on the "Sucker" stick don't you think?   The card was distressed with Ranger Lipstick Red Distress ink too. 

Here's a closer look at it:
