Embossing Techniques with Stampendous!

This is going to be a great week! The Stampendous Design Team will be sharing all sorts of techniques from Fran Seiford's (owner and creator of Stampendous) brand-spankin' new book Embossing Techniques from A-Z. I have been embossing since I was a teenager, and this book had new info for me in it! I couldn't believe how detailed, easy to understand, and chock FULL of inspiration this book has. It is perfect for the novice or long-time crafter. You must get yourself a copy! 


For my project today, I chose to work with Embossing Technique letter "J." You'll need to check out the book for exactly how it was done, but I will tell you that it's simple and really fun. I love the effect.


I used the Queen Annes Lace stamp for my card. Such a pretty stamp. My watercolors are from Strathmore.


I also used some Tear It! tape from Imagine Crafts along with Stampendous' Multi Crystal Glitter Mix for that super-sparkly line I have at the bottom. Below are the rest of the links that will be sharing projects today, but I recommend you check in with the Stampendous Blog each day, because you won't want to miss these ideas! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Can't wait to see this book! I still love the 'magic' of embossing, after trying it 29 years ago! It is a big part of what hooked me into paper arts that many years ago!
Your card is beautiful! Love the colors!
