Simon Says: Emboss It!

Heat or dry, we are totally cool with either one. Just sayin'.



It's time for another fun challenge from the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog! This time we are embossing! You can heat emboss or dry emboss! It's totally up to you! AND...the design team is playing with some super fabulous products from Stampendous!, so that makes it even EXTRA fun!

Paint Your Dreams

For my card I pulled out a newer Stampendous! stamp that I just LOVE! It's the Life is Art stamp. Such an awesome sentiment! I also used a variety of Stampendous! embossing enamels including some found in the Scenic Selection Embossing kit.

Life is Art (detail)

To achieve that cool painted look with embossing enamel I applied embossing ink straight from the dauber to the card and then covered with the embossing powder. I love how neat this looks! The washi tape finished the card off nicely!

One lucky challenge participant will win a $50 Gift Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore!!!


AND...you can get even more bang for your card making time (hmm...doesn't quite have the same ring as 'buck'. Oh, well. Just sayin'.) because Stampendous! is also hosting an embossing challenge this month! SO...here's the deal..make a card using embossing and link it up to both the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog AND the Stampendous! blog for two chances to win!


Here are the links to the products used to create this card!
