Lollipop Trees!

No, no, there really isn't such a thing as lollipop trees!
If there were, I would have one in my front yard. 
Strawberry, please! 

The Lollipop Trees I am talking about are the new embossing folders
by Craft Concepts that are available only at CropStop.
Earlier this week I shared the cards I made with Craft Concepts'
 Solid Stars Embossing Folders.  I love the Lollipop Trees just as much! 

I used Lollipop Trees in three different ways to make my cards.
I embossed the first one onto patterned paper.  
The image is crisp and did not rip my pretty paper at all. 


Challenges:
Lawnscaping Challenge: Patterned Paper

**********

The Lollipop Trees are debossed in my "Great Day" card. 
To deboss, just flip your paper wrong side up in the embossing folder. 
The image will be imprinted instead of raised. 


Challenges:
Dies to Die For - Anything Goes w/ a Die

 **********

For my last card I used a brayer to spread yellow & green paint onto the embossing folder.
I tried really hard to make it even and not get into the embossed trees.
This is embossed on a piece of Grunge Board.  The tree images are very sharp! 



I would love to know what unique ways you use your embossing folders! 
Please share.
