Simon Says Stamp: Emboss It! Challenge

Hi everyone!

I hope you're all having a great week! I'm back today to share a card for this week's Simon Says Stamp Challenge.

This week's challenge is to Emboss It! Either heat or dry embossing will fit the bill. :) The design team is showcasing projects using Stampendous products.

Here's my card using Stampendous Jelly Bean glitter:

You may be scratching your head as to how this fits the embossing theme. Well, Julie Ebersole posted a video on the last Online Card Class called Stretch Your Stamps where she used Sticky Stuff embossing powder by Judikins to heat emboss glitter onto her stamped image. I knew right away I wanted to give this a try too.

Here's how it works: Stamp your image with a good watermark ink and cover with the sticky embossing powder as you would any embossing powder. Heat it with your heat gun just enough to make the powder melt. (Over heating will harden or dry out the stickiness). Cover with glitter, gently pressing it onto the surface. Shake off the excess. Fun, eh?

Here are the products I used:

As always, the very generous Heidi of Simon Says Stamp is offering a $50 gift voucher to one lucky participant in this week's challenge so I hope you'll play along...but first head over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog to see what the other designers have created! :)

Silas has a birthday party tomorrow so I hopped over here for a little card inspiration and, lo and behold, a perfect idea for a 6 year old boy's card! Simple but graphic layout, primary colours and kraft, and boy-friendly bling. I love it!! Now, to find the time to make it... :P I don't know how you do it - you really are an inspiration! Thanks, Sarah!
