Happy Friday! As promised, I’m back with another card video featuring new products from Simon Says Stamp’s Making Spirits Bright release. And today’s blog post is part of a 2-day blog hop, too! Be sure to check it out the blog hop from yesterday as well. :)

Today I’m playing with another stencil from the release, the Christmas Star stencil. I did two kinds of embossing, the first being glitter embossing paste. I used a red card stock (Schoolhouse Red card stock) and Garnet Red Glimmer Paste from Nuvo to create a tone on tone effect.
For the second kind of embossing, I did heat embossing. I pressed clear embossing ink into Neenah Classic Crest Solar White card stock using a Mini Round Blending Tool. I found this application to give me the best results, as opposed to pressing the ink pad directly into the stencil-covered card stock. I found that the foam tool gave me a bit more control. I then applied Simon Says Stamp Antique Gold heat embossing powder over the entire surface.
For both cards, I created greeting areas using the new Stained Glass Greetings stamp set.
