Modern Shout it from the Rooftops - Simon Says Stamp

*I have a step-by-step of my coloring for this card on my Instagram Story today - I also have started doing weekly giveaways over there if you want to come check out this weeks! You can follow me on Instagram HERE!*

Hello! I'm sharing a card today using one of my favorite recently released stamp sets from Simon Says Stamp called From the Rooftops. I love the clever sentiments that go with the fun scenes! Today's card uses some gray cardstock, heat embossing, and colored pencils!

I have been drooling over the Polychromos Colored Pencils, but since I don't have them yet, I decided I should probably pull out some of the ones I actually DO have and use them! One set that hasn't seen NEARLY enough use is my Chameleon Double Ended Colored Pencils - they work so well for easy blending and were perfect for this technique!

I heat embossed in gold, then used both ends of various pencils to color in the skyline. I created a window in the same color of cardstock and placed it over the top with foam adhesive. Finished off by heat embossing my sentiments on black cardstock and attaching them in place!

  1. I missed the Instagram video. Just wondering if you use Gamsol to blend your colored pencils. The vibrant colors are gorgeous!

    1. Sorry I couldn't find a way to email you back! I actually didn't use Gamsol - just layered on lots of colors! The photo tutorial is actually saved in my highlights on Instagram if you wanted to check that out?
