Stamp TV's "Blast from the Past" Challenge - Pattern Embossing

Hi there,
Thanks to everyone who entered last weeks "coloring with OMS"...truly loved seeing the different approaches to coloring. There was so much new inspiration - cant wait to try some of them (-:

I'm enjoying these technique challenges because they give me a chance to try new things! Sometimes I can get in a "mojo rut" and my cards will start looking very similar...but using the different techs can change that (if I remember them KWIM!)

This week's challenge  is Patterned Embossing . It's easy and gives a different look to cards. You can watch Gina's tutorial from HERE!


For my card, I used GKD's Showtime Stamp set "Eclectic Summer" and "Vintage Borders' by Nina Brackett.
Love using the oval nesties, inks are Memento's -Paris Dusk and Tuxedo Black along with Vivid's-Aqua, cardstock is GKD's -In the Navy and White, GKD ribbon and stash flowers. Background dp is from Basic Grey's-Euphoria.

You do not need to use Gina K Designs stamps to participate, although we'd love it if you did! In fact, if you use Gina K Stamps in your entry, then your name will be added to the prize drawing TWICE! Please be sure to create a new project for the challenge versus linking up something you've created before.
You have until next Wednesday, June 22nd, at 8pm CST, to upload your sample. One winner will be drawn at random to win a Gina K stamp set valued at $24.95 or less!

hope you get a chance to play!
have a blessed day,
