♥ Simon Says...Emboss it! ♥

Happy Hump Day! I hope you all are enjoying your week so far! Only a couple of days left until the weekend! woot! woot! But since today is Wednesday, that means it's a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog! This week we want to see Embossing on your cards! It can be either Heat or Dry Embossing or BOTH!


This week the Simon Says Stamp DT is featuring products by Stampendous! For my card I chose this new Cling Stamp by Stampendous called Butterfly Post. I first stamped it in some brown inks and then stamped it again onto another piece of cardstock. I cut the butterfly out of the second image and heat embossed it with some Aged Aqua Embossing Enamel by Stampendous. I love the pretty aqua color mixed with the gold. And to get a better effect with this embossing enamel, I heated it up from underneath.


I also used some beautiful papers by Prima from the new Tea Thyme 6x6 Paper Pack. These papers are so pretty and romantic. I also used a Heart Doily, Prima Typo Zipper, Prima Heart Crystal, seam binding and the "love" stamp is from the Exclusive Simon Says Stamp Set called Beautiful Words.


And, don't forget, Heidi will generously give the random winner of this challenge a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore! Good luck everyone!






♥♥♥ And check this out!! ♥♥♥

This is sooo beautiful, Melissa! I adore that butterfly! :) I've always wondered about that 'Aged Aqua' Ep but was afraid of what it might look like IRL, so I've held off. I think you just sold me on it! :)
