Happy Wednesday, everyone! It's time for another challenge at the Simon Says Stamp blog! This week we're embossing - you can emboss either dry or with heat, or both! The design team is using Stampendous products, and because mine is a set, I made you 2 cards again to show it off. Here's the first one, using just 1 of the 4 stamps in my set:
The set is called Cling Foliate Quad Set. I chose the design that was "open" so I could color inside the leaves after I stamped it twice and embossed it with this fantastic Zing Copper Glitter Finish embossing powder. I also used the powder on the sentiment. Other products: VersaMark ink, October Afternoon 9 to 5 button, natural twine, and Memento Dual-tip Markers. Here's another picture with the card tipped to show you the gorgeous glittery effect of the embossing powder - it makes a coppery dazzle!
I wanted to show you the other 3 patterns that are in this set, so I chose some autumn colors of cardstock, and stamped them again with VersaMark ink, but this time I heat embossed them in clear powder. Love how the ink darkens the impression in a tone-on-tone effect.
Since I have lots of fall birthdays coming up, I made this one into a birthday card using the Hero Arts sentiment, colored with the same markers as above, and a wood button from Dear Lizzy.
The generous Heidi is giving away another $50.00 gift voucher for the random winner of our challenge, to spend any way you like at the Simon Says Stamp Superstore!!
