Stamp Review Crew: For All Things

SRC-For-All-Things-bannerHello, hoppers!  The Stamp Review Crew hop this time features For All Things, the wonderful autumn set from the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.  Even if your locale is not ablaze with colors, I’m sure you’ll still be feelin’ the fall after this hop!

Did you come from Stress-Free Stamping with Shana?  Isn’t her work fabulous?  (Remember to click the banner to find the list of all blogs on this hop so you don’t miss a thing!)

I chose to revisit a technique, Emerging Color, used last fall at our all-day stamping event.  You can search the web and find excellent tutorials on this technique; basically it is filling a cardstock panel with splotches of color (I used a sponge), stamping an image with VersaMark and embossing it with clear powder, then covering the entire panel with a dark ink using a brayer.  Wiping excess ink from the embossed areas reveals the intense contrast of colors:

Although I trimmed a piece off of my prepared panel, I couldn’t bear to toss it, so I created a second birthday card for a friend:

    Gorgeous cards, Debra! You are right — this set is perfect for the emerging colors technique! And that last one is so clean and fresh looking.

    What a gorgeous background you created! I love that technique, and I really should use it again soon 🙂 It’s fantastic that you got a second card out of your scraps, and that card is just as cute! And we all need some 10 minute cards in our arsenal, lol.
