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 inspired....so.....I 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. :)
