Welcome to the Simon Says Stamp December 2014 Card Kit Blog Hop!
The December Kit focuses on one of my all-time favorite stamping techniques: heat embossing! I've been heat embossing almost as long as I've been stamping. One of my very favorite mediums to heat emboss? Vellum. There is just something about an embossed sentiment or image on vellum that adds that extra "something" to a card or project.
I also love the look of adding details to die cut images with heat embossing, like on my card share today!
I die cut the metallic silver cardstock from the December Kit using the stitched rectangle from the Bundle of Stitched Shapes die collection. I stamped the greeting from the Sparkle and Shine Stamp Set using the Distress Embossing Ink and embossed with the Platinum Embossing Powder. This color of embossing powder is one of my all-time favorites. It's gorgeous.
Here are my favorite colors of embossing powder. The new Simon Says Stamp embossing powders have quickly become some of my very favorites. Fine detail. Great coverage. Good stuff.
To see how I put this card together from start to finish, watch out the video below or view on youtube HERE:
