Gettin' Inky With It

This week for Hand Stamped Sentiments I wanted to make another Halloween card, but the more I looked at those stamps, the more I was not made a fall card instead!  Here is what I came up with:

Jiggy on over this week to Hand Stamped Sentiments and be challenged with a fun technique.  Ink up your embossing folders and "impress" us!!


Okay, here's how I did this.....and no....I didn't use our "core-dinations" paper either. 

1. I rubbed Soft Suede ink on one side of my embossing folder.
2. Ran a piece of Naturals Vanilla CS in that embossing folder through the Big Shot.
3. Next, I inked up my Brayer with Soft Suede ink and inked off a little then ran it over the embossing/inked side. 
4. Stamped some leaves from the Gently Falling Stamp set in Raspberry Ripple, Gumball Green and Summer Starfruit.  
....And here's a close up shot of the embossing....

On a side note, I have some super sweet and exciting news!!  I was asked a couple months ago by SU! to be a guest artist in the Stampin' Success Magazine.  Of course, I said YES!!  They sent me the set called Watercolor Winter from the Holiday Catalog and told me to create 4 projects.  
If you are a Demonstrator, it's on page 20-21 of the Nov/Dec. 2012 issue of Stampin' Success!! YES....It's for real!!  I still can't believe it and I'm still on cloud 9!!

Thanks for indulging me in a bit of bragging.  :)  

Happy Stamping!

BRAG AWAY GIRL! So awesome, I would think someone is pulling a practical joke if they called me. I love how you did this card, I never thought about inking over the embossing.

Congrats again! You deserve it. Love the card and the "natural" feel. The two step stamped leaves are perfect for it. You did a great job with the challenge!
