Summer School with Stephanie Klauck!



Hello and welcome to the weekend classes of Simon Says Stamp Summer School!

Today's lesson is brought to you by Stephanie Klauck.
In today's lesson, Stephanie shows us how to use the Simon Says Stamp dies for embossing rather than cutting.

Always Thinking of You

A little more about the card from Stephanie:

Thank you for joining me for my lesson in Summer School. ;) 

One of my favorite things to do to get the most out of my dies, is to use them for embossing as well as cutting. All you need is a rubber mat to use in place of one of the standard cutting mats in your die cutting machine, and the dies emboss perfectly.

Here are a few examples of some of the Simon Says Stamp dies embossed on various colours and types of papers:


To see how to create this card and emboss with Simon Says Stamp dies, you can check out the video below.



A big thank you to Stephanie for sharing this embossing with dies technique and her beautiful card.
Thanks for visiting today! See you in class tomorrow!

  18. I too LOVE the look of white on white with embossing. I do feel the truest form of elegance is cream and white with embossing though. Something about the soothing cream on the white makes me swoon and makes all my senses turn to antique lace, white velvet and satin. ahhhh great card. thank you so much for sharing.

  111. Such an elegant card! I love how you did the inside with the embossed butterfly. A tip I learned from Shari Carroll is to take your tape and get some fuzz off your shirt etc and it cuts down on the stickiness of the tape and it sticks but now too much and removes easier. Just thought I would share with you.
