Emboss it card with video tutorial

Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about Embossing it! If you'll use embossing folder, heat embossing, embossing paste, or another way to emboss, we would like to see!

For this challenge I went for heat embossing. I absolutely love the Halftone & Rings stamp set from Tim Holtz, and have used it for the background of my card. First I stamped the Rings in Picked Raspberry and then the Halftone in Versamark with Black Embossing Powder. This gives it a bit of a pop-like style. That reminded me of graffiti and have therefore used the Bricks stamp the give it more of an urban vibe.


Pop art is actually lots more colorful, but I was more in the mood for a monochrome look. I'm so happy with my self carved chevron stamp, and use it all the time now. The balloons I've cut out with the Silhouette Cameo. I don't use that machine enough...



To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers. This prize will go to a random entry. So go over to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun!

Absolutely great! I couldn't wait till today to see your video! I am definitely getting addicted :-) Great colors, I love the picked raspberry and use it often. I have never tried to emboss over distress inks! I should try it. I just love your triple washi you put on every project, it's like your signature :-) One day you skip it, I'd miss them for sure! Fabulous project and stunning video with Lenny :-) Hugs, Marzena
