Challenge #14 - Stencil and Emboss

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the 14th challenge here at 

Let's Squash It! 

Let's Squash It! is The Embossing Folder Challenge.  We are gonna help you explore the world of the not so humble embossing folder and encourage you to dig 'em out, knock the dust off and find old, new and fun ways to make your projects pop. 

We have an awesome team to keep you entertained and awesome challenge themes to stretch your creativity and get you using all those long forgotten and neglected embossing folders. 
For those of you who are just tuning in you can check the previous posts for the story behind the genesis of the challenge and the technique posts for awesome tips and techniques to help you make the most of your supplies and folders.

Challenges start on the 10th of the month and run to the last day at 23.59 GMT.  We will be picking top picks and a winner, who will have a chance to be our guest designer for a future challenge.  There is a little prize on offer for a randomly selected winner and these will all be announced on the 5th of next month.   

So, Challenge #14

I thought this was an interesting technique and one I've never seen before so I wanted to try it! It worked out well and I'll be doing it again! Thanks for inspiring!

Fab results from you all. I think my brain has stalled, I’ll try popping it into neutral and see what it comes up with when I’m not trying!

What a fun technique! I am so glad I squeezed in some time to give this a try. It was easy and fun and turned out so cute. Love the beautiful samples! Thank you to Vicki for sharing her lovely snowflake card...I love the colors and the texture from the dry embossing.
Thank you to Jo and Gail for another wonderful challenge! I am off to comment on a few entries!
