challenge #13

Today's challenge is brought to you by our dear friend
Karolyn (AKA garkarlon on SCS):

Welcome to our next Res-Q "Getting Buggy With It" Challenge.
Summertime and bugs - they go hand in hand like peas and carrots. Along with bugs comes bug bites, which almost always leave welts. YUCK! My Challenge to You: Create a card using embossed dots! There are lots of techniques to create embossed dots - an embossing folder (Cuttlebug/Big Shot), a stylus, template and mousepad, ink/embossing powder - any method will work, just as long as you can see the "welts" (dimension) on your card!!

Here's my sample to hopefully inspire some ideas for you. Looking forward to seeing what you all come up with!

Remember, there are no time limits, vendor restrictions or other rules for the challenge. It's only for fun and inspiration. When uploading your card to Splitcoaststampers, Papercraft Planet, StampTV, or any other site, please use the keyword RESQ13. And whenever you upload to a site or your blog, be sure to link back here so we can all see what you've done! You can use Mr. Linky below!


  1. Karolyn, this is an awesome, awesome challenge. How creative. I have been wanting to try this for a long time. Your card samples are wonderful. Thanks for being our great guest hostess!

  2. I'll be doing my later tonight when kiddies are in bed...I have lots of laundry to do today from camping!

  3. You are so clever, Karolyn! This will be fun!

  4. I though for sure it was going to be use bugs! I had to take a second look at the embossed dots part!! LOL!! Fun idea. I posted my card in Mr. Linky.

  5. What fun! My resolution is to do all the summer challenges since I'm off and have no excuse not to!LOL Fun challenge, Karolyn. I was just telling Jean that I never use my CB embossing strip folders, so I was happy to be able to use one on this card!

  6. That was fun! Though I combined challenges, I did my dots just for you! lol Were we to include a bug, eek, I think I forgot that part! But I did do garden flowers, so I'm sure there's bugs....aren't there always bugs?!
    Great challenge!
    blessings, Maria

  7. Fun, fun and using my favorite CB folder..Thanks for a the challenge!!I had really wanted to use this panel in some way and this challenge was the best time!!
