Challenge #15 - It's Your Call

 Welcome, welcome, welcome to the 15th 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 8th of next month.   

So, Challenge #15
And this month's theme is

Use any Embossing Folder AND Any Technique

It's coming up to the crazy time of the year so we are keeping it simple.  Use any embossing folder and any technique.  Revisit one of the techniques we have shared in previous challenges, maybe try something you didn't get a chance to do, or share any other technique you know.  We all like to learn new things.    Please make sure you include both parts of the challenge on your card and also check da roolz to ensure your entry will be eligible for the random prize draw!

We are very pleased to have our Let's Squash It!! Empress joining us as our guest designer this month.  Please welcome Carol Gunn.

"Hello from Hamilton, New Zealand.  I still love card making as much as I did when I started 20 years ago and try to make a card a day - I love to share handmade happiness.  I don’t have a particular card making style but tend towards the unfussy, although I have been known to go WiLd from time to time and I do like to get inky and messy and try to make the most of stuff I have.  I love challenges and trying new things,  and I’m so pleased to be invited to ‘guest’ in such a creative team.  Get inspired, try something new, happy crafting!"
