Simon Says Stamp and Emboss it!

I was looking for a fun challenge and came across the Simon Says Stamp and Show blog.  The challenge is to  Stamp and Show - Some Embossing.  Doesn't matter if it's wet or dry, just get to it. 

I haven't done a 3 D project in awhile so I grabbed a small composition book from the stash, my
Tim Holtz  The Journey Stamps and some awesome Graphics 45 paper from the Transatlantique Collection.  I think this would make a great little travel gift for logging memories and miles.


I heat embossed the car and the tickets then cut them out and did some "fingerinking" to make the bg color more like the DP.  I then stamped the sentiment directly onto the cover piece and heat embossed it.  I decided to add a tea stained tag as a bookmark so I stamped some of them images in clear around the sentiment, sprinkled on Clear EP then applied the heat.  After it dried, I did more finger inking on the clear images.  I even did some heat embossing on the edges of the notebook...first time I've tried that but it won't be the last...it looks cool!  I just sponged Versamark around the edges, then added black EP and heat...voila!




Supplies:
Paper - Graphics 45 Transatlantique, PTI Rustic Cream
Ink - Versamark, PTI Summer Sunrise, Chai, Dark Chocolate, Tim Holtz Walnut Distress
Stamps - Tim Holtz "The Journey"
Accessories - small composition book, Pentel Pen, tea stained tag, black EP, May Arts black velvet ribbon & Black cord,  metal key, paper closures, foam tape

Pin It!
