Simon Says.........Embossing



Hello, and welcome to another Wednesday challenge for Simon Says Stamp!  


This week our theme is Embossing, either wet or dry, and the DT are using Cuttlebug or Sizzix products in our creations. With all of the beautiful embossing folders that we have to choose from, it is one of my favorite things to use on my cards.  I made 3 cards for you today, all using embossing folders.

Here's my first card today, using faux letterpress.  I inked the front of the embossing folder before putting my paper inside, and that gives a greater definition to the embossing.

SSS Embossing for Sept (2)

supplies: cream cardstock, Cuttlebug Anna Griffin Poppy folder and strip, butter bar mid-tone ink, Ali Edwards Bring on the Sun sentiment

For my 2nd card, and still in the mood for yellow, I let the embossing folder be the star of the show, just adding a sentiment, some flowers and pearls.  I love how this one turned out:

SSS Sept 11 Embossing challenge

supplies: cream, yellow, and green cardstock, Sizzix Ornate Frames folder, The Craft's Meow Side by Side, Die-Namics large and mini rolled roses, Wplus9 Folk Art Florals leaf die, yellow pearls

I'd like to enter this 2nd card into the Flourishes Make a Good Impression challenge.

And for my 3rd card, I used a technique I learned from Lisa Spangler, embossing over washi tape and stamping.

SSS Sept Embossing


supplies: white cardstock, assorted washi tapes, Sizzix Vines folder, Penny Black flutters buterfly die, Ali Edwards So Very Thankful (thank you, Lisa!), picked raspberry distress ink


Our sweet Heidi has provided another $50.00 gift voucher for the random winner of our challenge.

  16. You did a gorgeous job on the faux letterpress! I have tried to do this technique and it's HARD! My first attempt that worked (sort of) was also in yellow so I think yours caught my eye right off because of that! :)
