Embossing!! Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge Guest Designer

Hello crafty friends!!!
So excited and honored to be a guest over at Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge 98 sponsored by Simon Says StampThe theme is "Embossing". Thank you Barb and SSS for having me over :)
I love Simon's gorgeous products and they are so versatile too. I don't know about you but I like to stretch my supplies whenever I can so when I got the theme, I decided to work with techniques and stretch my products. I took out some of the new and old products and started creating. Here is how below:

Card 1
I used the Heart Stream die here and instead of using it for die-cutting, I embossed using it. I then used the back side of this embossed impression piece. Love the raised effect. I then die-cut the hearts from the Holiday Shapes die. It's amazing how it fits perfectly inside the Heart Stream die. I used Zig Clean color brush markers to add color to the hearts in a rainbow color order. Adhered them inside the raised parts. To finish I die-cut the sentiment from gold mirror cardstock using the Happy Birthday die. A clean and simple card, perfect for a birthday :)

Card 2

For this card, I used one of my favorite SSS stencil and rather than using it as a stencil, I used it for dry embossing. It gives a subtle raised effect, you can see it in the close up better. Here are the products I used for my card.Stamp: Cloudy Sky's, Tilted Banner Sayings; Die: Picture Book Lion, You word die, Clouds; Stencil: Mosaic Heart Stencil

I embossed using the stencil and then applied some distress oxide inks to it. (check for the colors HERE, HERE and HERE) I then die-cut the Picture Book Lion image (Oh! love them all), sponged various distress inks. Now for the grass, I went a bit creative. I didn't have any of the SSS hills or grass so I used the cloud stamp and dies to create the grassy bushes :) AND that is what I meant by versatile... aren't these products versatile?

check out the embossed detail using the stencil :)

Card 3

Now for this card I used dies for embossing as well as traditional embossing using watermark ink and embossing powder.
I used:
For the coloring I used the Zig Clean color brush markers and some distress oxide inks for the background.

And now it's your turn to create! Check out the rules and prizes at Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge 98. Looking forward to see your creations :) Have a happy crafty weekend!!
