You're Lucky Card | Gold Embossing

I saw this stamp set at my local craft store. It's by Concord & 9th, I really have only one other stamp set by them and that is the Perfectly Penned stamp. I love the fonts they use and have been inspired to mix up more fonts lately; As you can probably see by my Saturday's post.

Follow along with this great challenge from Simon Says Stamp.

This week prompt is something new.

The entire sentiment is from the Lucky stamp set. I really love all the possibilities of sentiments that you can use with just this one set. By clicking the picture below it will take you to the Concord & 9th website.

So this card was pretty simple to make. The hardest part was figuring out the colors I wanted to go with. I really like the "in the Navy" ink by Gina K. and used both blue colors by her. Her inks definitely do dry nice and smooth. I used the Misti of course to stamp out everything but that word "lucky" is so bold it looks like a card stock die cut not a stamped word.

Of course.... I did have some trouble with this card... My heat gun stopped working. If you follow me on Instagram you may have already saw this.... I was done with the front embossing and was working on the inside. After laying out the stamps where I wanted them to be and using VersaMark ink with white embossing powder; I went to melt the powder and tried to turn on my heat gun.... nothing happened. I switched outlets and even went to a whole different room.... again nothing. No power, no heat. Here I was with embossing powder all ready to be melted just sitting there on my cardstock. So.... I went to the kitchen. Kicked the oven on to Broil at 400 degrees, grabbed a pair of tongs and heated it up. Worked like a charm and so fast! Then of course I ordered a new heat gun.

That heat gun by Marvy had lasted going on  9 years now, so it was only a matter of time.

My broiled sentiment, inside. =)
