SSINKspiration Masculine Monday: Blended Seasons

Good morning!  Had a wonderful weekend now that the guys are home and we were able to celebrate Chris' birthday with a little road trip into DC.  Also enjoyed some stamping time with a friend this afternoon, loved catching up all around.  Today I'm back and the SSINKspiration blog is having another addition  of Masculine Monday so I'm sharing this emboss resist card made with the Blended Seasons stamp set (which is only available this month, while supplies last).  I really like this stamp set since you have several images that lend themselves to coloring but you can also make plenty of cards without watercoloring, etc. such as this technique.

I started with Crushed Curry cardstock for the cardbase and then added Cajun Craze cardstock as a mat for the cardfront.

The cardfront uses White Glossy cardstock and I started by stamping the grain looking image repeatedly using Versamark Ink and White Embossing Powder and then Heat embossed it with the Heat Tool.  Next I took Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, and Cajun Craze ink and applied it using Stampin' Sponges starting lightest and working to the darker colors.  You can keep applying ink until you get the color level you want.  Make sure to use a paper towel to wipe off any extra ink that remains where the heat embossed image is.

To finish off the card I added some Linen Thread and tied a bow and the greeting, from the same stamp set, was stamped in Momento Black ink (give this ink just a couple minutes to dry fully).

This card has such a soft, fall feeling, it kind of reminds me of harvest season (what do you think?)  The great thing about the emboss resist technique is that you can use any color combination and design of the ink application for the effect your looking for, so man possibilities.  I'm going to be sharing different cards all week with this stamp set so you will really see lots of great ideas that will make you want to make sure to get this set before its gone.
