Stamp, Color, Emboss

I used the cool new Simon Says Stamp Outline Merry Christmas Background stamp from their latest Holly Jolly release to make a fun Christmas card...
I used my MISTI for today's card.  I put the stamp in my MISTI, taking the black pad out of the MISTI.  I stamped the sentiment images onto cardstock with Simon Smoke ink.  I took the card stock out the MISTI and colored the sentiments...red for the "merry", green for the "christmas", and gray for everything else.  I then put the piece of card stock back into the MISTI, rubbed my magic embossing bag over the entire piece of paper, then using versamark, stamp the sentiments again, and heat after sprinkling with gold embossing powder.  I finished the card by adding drops of Tonic Morning Dew all ove the letters for some fun bling!  Here's a close up...
I LOVE this technique...it's truly like opening a Christmas present when you get done...such a great surprise!  Hope you are having a great day, thanks so much for taking the time to visit my blog today!!

  1. Hi Lisa This card is lovely, simple and elegant, much like I imagine you to be :-)

    How do you keep your heat embossed card so flat? Mine always curl and go wavy.

    1. Hi Pat! I think it can really matter the cardstock you use. This cardstock is 110lb weight, and i think that helps a bit. I have, though, had my pieces bend a little after heating, but have found that if I leave them for a bit, the paper will relax back to it's original flatness. Then, I put the card together. Hope this helps...thanks for asking...hope you are doing well!! Hugs!!
