Because Creamsicles are Delicious

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog


Mmmmmm! Yes. They. Are. I'm a big fan. Which is funny, because I'm not actually a huge fan of oranges, I mean, they are okay, but not something I reach for often. And the orange flavored jelly beans really aren't my favorite, either, but for some reason, the minute you mix an oragey flavor with creamy goodness, I am in heaven, my friends! HEAVEN! I do so love creamsicles. And creamsicle flavored drinks with alcohol in them. For reals, though... those are awesome. Just sayin'.

ANYWAY, when my August kit from Simon Says Stamp arrived at my door, I saw creamsicles as soon as I this stamp set fell into my  hands! And what better way to create that refreshing, creamy look, than with watercolors?! Yup. I'm in love. With creamsicles. All over again.

So Cool


The new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, yes, afterall, that is the reason we have gathered together today (Nope, not MAAAWAIGE this time, folks.... or for this thing called life... nope, not that one today, either. Although, now I do really want to listen to Prince all day and watch the Princess Bride. K. Tangent done. Moving forward.). Right. New challenge. It's EMBOSS IT! Yup! We want to see you emboss! You can heat emboss, dry emboss, use embossing paste, WHATEVS, folks! Just EMBOSS IT!

you're cool (detail)


I used the super awesome matt dull embossing powder from Wow for my image and then watercolored over it to create a resist. For the textured background, I mixed embossing paste with glitter, because glitter, and then spread it over a stencil to create the dotted background. I kind of love it. Lots. For reals, though.

You're Cool (detail2)


And now it's YOUR TURN! One lucky participant will win a $50 Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Store! Yup. Dudes. You know you want that. SO, all you need to do is create a NEW project (up to FIVE) with the EMBOSS IT! theme and link it up to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog! Happy Crafting, folks!


You can find the links to the goodies I used to create my card below! 

Have a Happy!
