Stretch Your Stamps, Day 1 (Again)

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,


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. You bless me!
