Lee Holland Illustrations

My name is Lee Holland and I am a freelance illustrator who loves to design and draw cute characters. I've worked in many industries over the years including greeting cards, card making, cross stitch and books to name a few. I love nature and going for walks with my family which provides a lot of inspiration for my work. I decided to open an etsy shop to sell my designs as Digi stamps for crafters to use in their crafting projects. I hope people enjoy using my images as much as I do drawing them :)

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
your Favourite Embossing Technique (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Here are the beautiful creations made by our Design Team to get your mojo flowing:

When I first started stamping I dabbled with embossing powders, but I really like the quick and easy textured effect you can get with embossing folders.

Using : Baby Giraffe

My favourite embossing, I just love how lines
of embossing on a board look crisp and clean.


Love embossing folders, love the texture and depth they give to your card and there is so many lovely folders out there to be had!

I love my embossing folders, the texture gives the card such powerful effect.


For texture you can't beat a good old embossing folder. 
It adds a certain something to a CAS card. 
Using : Girl with Flower


It's more work, but I love the extra dimension that you get with embossing powder and a heat tool. 
Using: Baby Giraffe

So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge, show us your style and 
showcase your Favourite Embossing Technique (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Good luck, and happy crafting.
Hugs from the AYLI girls.
