All That Scraps Challenge ~ itsy, bitsy, teenie, weenie . . .


Yellow polka-dot bikini!


Yay, it’s Wednesday and time for a new challenge at All That Scraps!!     I bet you’re wondering what could the challenge possibly be??  No, not the latest swimwear!   hehehe   It’s actually dry embossing.    huh, you say?    Yep.  Our challenge this week is dry embossing – not my specialty, so you won’t find tooo much embossing on this card.   Just lots of DOTS to match the itsy, bitsy, teenie, weenie yellow polka-dot bikini!!!   (I STILL have this song in my head and just can’t get it out!!)    Smiley from



This little beach bum cutie is a brand new image from C.C. Designs ~ Honey Bikini!   I just love her cool sunglasses.  

She’s been colored with Copics, cut out and popped up onto a Spellbinders Nestabilities Circle die cut, that was embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder.   Actually, the main mat, the circle sentiment, white edging around the sentiment and the white and yellow base cardstock were ALL embossed with this same folder.  

The DP is from Bo Bunny, the best source for dotted paper –  IMO.   Her sunglasses were cut from a small section of some very cool imaginisce DP, that has an iridescent black coating on it.   I added some white self-adhesive candy dots to each corner and a yellow polka-dot organza ribbon from my stash.   

Be sure to take a peek at the embossed creations from the All That Scraps DT.    And, if you’d like to join us for this challenge, all the details can be found on the All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge blog.  

Thanks for stopping by!
