Stamp Simply ... Hard Rock Cafe

Pin It

TGIF hoarding card-makers and welcome to the weekend! And, since it's finally another Friday, it's time for another "Stamp Simply" challenge!

This week, Sharon has us rockin' with "hard rocks!" Think metals and stones as added elements for your project including metallic pens, metallic papers, rhinestones, gold, silver, and diamonds. Feel free to use copper, rubies, emeralds, pearls, etc. Use these types of beauties to embellish and enhance your rockin' creation!

I decided to combine the beauty of fall foliage and the "hard rock" theme by heat embossing my stamped images with gold embossing powder, then coloring with an assortment of Twinkling H2O's:

To play along in this week's challenge ... and we hope you do! ... simply create a card or other paper project using "hard rocks" on your creation. Then, upload it to your blog or online photo gallery and visit Sharon's blog, located HERE to link up your project in Mr. Linky, located HERE.

When uploading to an online gallery, such as Splitcoast Stampers, SNR, or Paper Craft Planet, please use keyword: "ssnotime161" so that we can find your project.
