Warm Wishes for Fall

I missed the last SSS Flickr challenge, but when I saw the new theme is emboss resist I had to play along. It's definitely one of my favorite techniques.  I used stamps from SSS Warm Wishes with Distress Inks spiced marmalade, fossilized amber & peeled paint.  The sentiment is stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa which was also used to ink the mat.  Finished off with Dew Drops (a prize from Pixies Snippets Playground) using a Copic to make a clear one match the spiced marmalade.  I used Fall colors to enter the challenge at City Crafter Challenge Blog & my stamping (a set from last year's STAMPtember) lets me enter at SSS Monday. Happy Fall if you're in the Northern Hemisphere & thanks so much for stopping by.

  6. It's fall now would someone please tell the plant guys to turn down the a/c! We haven't cracked 100 all month but they are still cooling us for it. I'm about to get frostbite! Anyway, LOVE this card. If I get stumped for fall inspiration I need to come visit your blog!!!!

  7. Pretty card Greta, the colors you chose are fabulous. The brown sets it all off so nicely as well, much better than black.

  21. Another trio of colours that captured fall's splendor beautifully! I rarely use the emboss resist technique, since embossing causes me to fret. Seeing your astounding results, though, is inspiring...may have to try again...
