Simon Says Stamp and Show blog has a challenge this week: For the Love of Sparkle. The projects on this blog are vintage inspired. Here is my contribution.


I stamped a Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous stamp “Holiday Collections” on card stock. I stamped the image using Distress Embossing Ink. Using Ranger’s distress embossing powders dropped into the areas I wanted color, I heat embossed the stamped image. This was a technique I saw Tim Holtz demonstrate at one of his workshops. I finished the by coloring with Distress Inks. I then mounted the piece onto pearlized copper colored card stock and attached at the corner with cooper wire.

Here is a closer look.
