YNS Fun Friday - Embossing

It's another Fun Friday with Your Next Stamp. Today my Card is using the most adorable Fhiona Bad Hair Day Stamp Set.  I have been having a ton of bad hair days lately, so I thought this was perfect for today :)

I used SC372 for my layout. It's simple, but so effective when you are wanting to showcase a stamp. 

My tip for today is to not forget about embossing! I wanted to use the designer paper as my backdrop for the sentiment, but regardless of what ink I stamped with it was smearing. This particular DP has a smooth surface and makes it's difficult to stamp on. Instead of compromising, I decided to use embossing instead. Anytime you have issues stamping on DP with regular ink, this is your best alternative. This way you don't have to deal with any ink smearing.

I paper pieced her outfit to match the DP as well. Now I was able to use my Dp of my choice and not have to change things!
