Simon Says Stamp and Birch Press Design!

Hello All!

It is week three for me at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.


It is an honor to be the featured designer for July.


The design team is featuring Birchpress Design products this week.

The challenge this week is to 'Use a die or a punch'.

 These Birchpress products are just beautiful!  I stamped two flowers using the Birchpress Design Delicate Peony Stamp Set; I fussy cut them out as I do not have these dies.  For the leaves, I stamped them in Versamark ink and then clear embossed them using Wow Clear Embossing Powder; they were then fussy cut out.
The sentiment is from the Birchpress Wishing You the Best Sentiment Set and is stamped in a warm brown; it is die cut out with the coordinating Wishing You the Best Craft Die.
My mixed media background starts with a Tim Holtz Burlap Stencil and some  Wendy Vecchi Embossing Paste in white.  I embossed the right side of the background and then while it was still wet, I sprinkled some Aged Gold Stampendous Embossing powder on the wet embossing paste as well as on the cardstock.  The powder is more like granules, so it is pretty easy to control versus trying to use a fine powder.  I then heated/melted the powder.  For a little added elegance, I used a piece of white cardstock and inked it up using the same warm brown ink as the sentiment.  Then, using Versamark ink and the same Aged Gold EP, I added the EP to the brown strip of cs.
My usual Simon Says Stamp Moonshine Sequins finish off the card with some shine.
