Simon Says ,,,,, Emboss It


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the Spots and Dots Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
We will be back soon with the name of the lucky winner of the $50 Voucher
This week the challenge is ,,,,,,,,


heat emboss, dry emboss or you can use embossing paste.
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

I made this card for my daughter to give to her flatmate who has now finished university here and has returned to France to go on to bigger and better things I am sure :-)  I know that they will both miss each other, they have been like sisters since they were about 13.

I love embossing paste !! have you got some ? It is my all time fave product I think ! I squidgied some Doll Pink Ink onto a craft mat and smooched in the embossing paste and some bead glitter gel,, love this too ,, so sparkly. I then used a Simon's Exclusive Medium Dot Stencil to create the background. 

I used a Hero Arts Friend Definition background stamp for the postage stamp die cut, quite fitting I thought ,, haha. This Freckled Fawn Grey Airmail Washi is also a fave , as is the Irridescent String and the Woodgrain Cardstock,,, ss you can see I used a few faves today ,,, and the Plane Die ,,, yep that too  :-)
