SIP Challenge 175 – Gratitude!

Home / Blog / SIP Challenge 175 – Gratitude!

Hello my friends! It was a dreary Monday and that has continued into a dreary Tuesday. A good day to stay in and get some stuff done around the house. The kiddos are off from school and wanted to spend the day at my parents so I’ll have them tomorrow. I did go over and have breakfast with them this morning. Now to get some stuff done here! 😀

Tuesday and that means that it’s time for another Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge…

I felt like doing some heat embossing so I did just that… and a lot! My background is created using the Concord & 9th Deck the Halls Turnabout Photopolymer Stamp. I put it into my MISTI and used Versa-Mark to stamp it each time onto a piece of Grey 110lb Card Stock. It’s coated with Hero Arts Gold, Platinum, Copper and Brass Embossing Powder and heat set then trimmed to 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″. My card is a piece of lighter Grey 110lb Card Stock and I adhered the background to the front. For my greeting I used the Concord & 9th Grateful Leaves Dies to cut out the grateful from three pieces of Grey 110lb. They are adhered to each other with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. Before adding it to the card I used my Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen to add some sparkle. A pretty simple card with a big impact thanks to all of that metallic embossing powder! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Gratitude Challenge! Check out the rest of Team’s cards over on the BLOG and share your take with us in the gallery! Thanks so much for visiting today! Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday! 🙂

  1. I love how you’ve used the different metallic embossing powders to creat such a striking background. I’m really going to try this technique, and maybe try some with some different colours on some different small stamps. Thanks for the inspiration Justin

  2. Wow! Justin, this is a gorgeous card. I love the different colored embossing you did. I hope you will make time to get out to vote today! It is the most important thing you can do today…no matter which party. Have a great day tomorrow with the kiddos. The bright side of this weather is that it is not snow. Ugh!

  3. Absolutely beautiful! I’m beginning to acquire quite a collection of those turn about stamps—I just love them! Really like your different embossing colors. I’ll have to try that. Thanks for sharing!
