I've been playing in my craft room all day and made a couple of cards using the emboss resist technique we learned on Day 1 of the Stretch Your Stamps 2 class.
All stamps and supplies are CTMH. The ones on the black base card are current, the ones on the Fall card are retired.
The fun thing I did to stretch my stamps on the top card was how I did my sentiment. The "hi" stamp is actually a word bubble stamp. By using it over the circle die cut, I gave it a whole different look. The fun one on the bottom was creating my own background over which I stamped the words. After embossing, I used the direct to paper technique to apply black ink and completely block the colored leaves underneath. I thought about ironing off the embossing powder, but I used too dark a brown on my acorns and needed the shine to help read some of the smaller text.
It's been a fun crafting day, but now I'd better apply the lesson I learned from my first card of the day and do some clean up.
Until next time,
