Try Me Tuesday

GOOD MORNING my creative friends & welcome to another NEW segment called "Try Me Tuesday"! First off, I apologize I don't have a video for you today, I had a SUPER BUSY day yesterday & my son also had a baseball game so I definitely could NOT miss that! ;) 
Anyways, we will be doing this segment every other Tuesday & each time we will try something NEW! Today we are doing "Dry Embossing"! As soon as I found out we were doing "Dry Embossing", I KNeW I wanted to make my own embossing template using my "Stitched Hexy Dies"! 
This is the embossing template I made & I used a thick piece of chipboard. After I made this, I cut out my Tag Die, then placed this template over my tag & ran it through my EBosser using ALL the plates! 

I hope you can see the dry embossed "Hexy"  pattern on my tag! ALSO, I made a boo boo, I was "supposed" to make a CARD! I even READ on our schedule that we were making a card, I'm not really sure WHAT I was thinking! lol……. So, I ended up making a tag & I LOVE how it came out! I was even VERY PROUD of myself because I even made my own embellishment using my "Stitched Sweethearts & XOXO die".  All I did was cut out the 2 bigger hearts & just sewed them together down the center! The cute little sentiment is from "Once Upon a time", which will be back in stock "ANYDAY" now! ;) I thought it would be cute to add the tiny hearts from my "4x4 Journal & More"!

Okay, now onto my AWESOME design team! Don't forget to click on each name to visit each blog & give them ALL some "BLOGGY LOVE"! :)

Weren't ALL of these "Dry Embossing" cards AMAZING? If "YOU" have not tried dry embossing yet, I say just do it because it is SUPER FUN!!! Either make your OWN templates like "I" did, but you can also use your embossing folders that "Might" be collecting dust! lol.........
Thank you ALL SO VERY MUCH for stopping by, I will see you ALL back here tomorrow! :) xoxo

P.S. don't forget play along w/us for our SUPER FUN "SKETCH" challenge that is going on right HERE!
