Make My Monday - Embossing, and Empty Box Project #20

Our theme at Make My Monday this week is embossing - heat or dry.  For my DT card I used both. I used two different embosing folders ( on the mirror card and on the blue strip). I heat embossed a lace border stamp from the same set as the dressform, postmark and shoebox (more about these later) - these were stamped along with a Paper Artsy script stamp. On the bottom layer I clear embossed a Hero Arts background stamp and then coloured it using the embossing as a resist.

Now the stamp set I was a magazine freebie, called Jennifer Ellory From Paris with Love, which I pulled from my Empty Box Project box.

Just to recap:
On New Year's day I revealed my stamping shame - a big box of unused stamps - and started my Empty Box project. My aim is to work through the box , one stamp/ stamp set at a time and see if I can use them. If I can't use them, I will dispose of them. The aim is to finish with an empty box.

It may seem a long time since I took anything from my box but in fact I have had several attempts with stamps I just couldn't get to work! Maybe I'll do a catch-up post at some time. 

Anyway, we'd love to see your embossed projects at Make My Monday.
