Hello everybody! Hope your week is coming along all right. Can't believe it's half over already!

This card was created using the Emboss-Resist Technique. I first inked the ivory cardstock with Gina K Designs inks in Honey Mustard, Fresh Asparagus and Ocean Mist. Then I heat embossed the leaves across the page before adding Dark Sage ink on top. All this was layered onto Turquoise Sea and Black cardstocks. The layer on top has one leaf stamped in Dark Sage and outlined in B00 Copic Marker. I placed that on top of one GKD black and white ribbon.

I enjoyed creating this card after watching one of Gina's videos at her site, Gina K Design's Stamp TV. I entered this into their Mix It Up Monday Challenge, and also

Curtain Call Challenges which requires leaves.

Thank you for stopping by today! I appreciate your comments and visits very much, and I hope to see you again soon!


  1. This is just lovely. Fabulous technique. I am chuckling because I just entered a card in this same challenge. Oh, I am so ready for a bit of cooler weather.

  2. Your card is just stunning my dear. I love everything about it. I have been MIA because we are camping on Lake Superior for a few weeks. Internet is wonky, but please know that I look at your blog when I can. This one is a keeper for sure!!!

  3. Stunning Fall card. Love those leaves! Great job, girlfriend!!!

  4. Beautiful fall card. This is the perfect masculine fall card.

  5. Your card has me wishing for fall! Love the background technique you used...I just started buying some of GinaK's stamps and now you have me thinking about her inks too because they're gorgeous!

    1. My two favorite ink sets are from Stamps of Life (where I found you!) and Gina K Designs. You can't go wrong!

  6. This is so pretty, what a great technique!
