Cooking It Up #33 - Emboss a Sticky Leaf!

It's another recipe over at Cooking It Up With Katie and this week we don't have a sponsor so the team got to play with images from whomever they liked!

The ingredients are:

Use a Leaf (punch, image, pattern, anything with a leaf)
Add some Embossing (heat or dry)
Finish with a Sticker

Challenges:
AI Factory - Embossing
Paper Scissors Rocks - Dry Embossing
Speedy The Cats Friends - Stripes
Create With Connie and Mary - Sketch
Pocket Full of Posies - Autumn Leaves
Cupcake Inspirations - Photo inspiration
One Stitch At A Time - Use Your Digi's
Create 4 Fun - Use a Digi
Paper Playtime - Orange
The Shabby Tearoom - Pumpkin Patch inspiration photo
Artful Inkables - Embossing and Flowers
Digital Tuesday - Sew Special (and a digi)


Card Recipe:
Image - Potted Flowers by Designed 2 Delight
Paper - Autumn Splendor by DCWV
Medium - Copic Markers
Embossing Folder - Basic Grey by Sizzix
Border and Corner punch - Ribbon Loop by Martha Stewart
Leaf Punch - Martha Stewart
Ribbon - Hobby Lobby
Sentiment Sticker - The Paper Studio



I colored two of the images and cut the flower top out on the second and popped it up on top.
I love how the metallic paper looks when it is embossed, it's my new favorite technique so I'm sure you'll see more of it on my blog soon.
We'd love to see you over at Cooking It Up With Katie to play along with us.
