Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the Masculine Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
This week we are challenging you to
Emboss It 
Whether you choose to heat or dry emboss or you might like to emboss with paste or use an embossing tool. Whichever technique you choose to use we will be looking forward to seeing your creations!
This week we are showcasing WOW Products. You don't have to use them for the challenge but if you have them we would love to see them used.
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

And yet another senior moment I was sure I ordered a blue embossing powder but no I brought WOW Velvet Glitter Embossing Powder. So the idea I had went out of the window and I could easily use Bright White Opaque Embossing Powder but I'm always singing its praises and I use it regularly so I wanted to use something else to showcase what fab powders WOW are.

Now there is nothing wrong with the Velvet Glitter and as it happens I love my glittery Simon Says Stamp Snowflakes. Basically I used a Versamark pad and smothered a bit of cardstock then sprinkled the powder on it. You think you are using loads but in fact when you tip it back in its pot you've hardly used any at all.

The fun bit is using a heat gun to turn the powder into a sparkly bit of card. I used Simon Says Stamp Alexis and Maryann Snowflake dies, the little tiny one is Lawn Fawn Mini Snowflakes on the embossed card. Yes it did stick a bit to the die but I have a Versamark pen so I just topped them up with a bit more powder and heated it again.

I've the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle and their Stitched Banners to make the actual card and the sentiment is probably my favourite Christmas one from Simon Says Stamp Christmas Toys stamp set.

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too.

You have until Wed  8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in
