Friday Mashup #176!!

Well September isn't starting off too great for me on the Birthday card front.. I'm running behind all ready.. I will get them out they just won't be on time! 

This week at the Friday Mashup we're using a sketch and the Emboss resist technique. 

I decided to make a masculine card so I'm at least ahead on one of the cards I need this month. My card base is Chocolate Chip with a layer of some retired DSP that I die cut with the Lil' Inkers Stitched Rectangles die. I wrapped some natural twine around the panel before I added it to my base. 

I stamped the Leaves from the set Gently Falling onto some watercolor paper with white embossing powder and then I colored them in with Tangerine Tango, Old Olive and Crushed Curry inks. Once they were dry I wiped the excess ink off the embossed area and trimmed them out. 

I stamped the Hardwood background stamp onto a piece of Chocolate Chip card stock using some white embossing powder I heat set it and cut it out using the Oval framelits. I added the leaves with some Tombow multi glue and dimensioanls. Then I stamped the sentiment from Endless Birthday Wishes onto a piece of Old Olive using Chocolate Chip ink and trimmed it to look like a banner. 

I'm trying to remember to decorate the inside of my cards.. So I created a Vanilla panel with a stitched border and then I added the sentiment from Endless Birthday Wishes in Chocolate Chip and I added the acorn stamp from Gently Falling with some Old Olive ink. 

Stop by the Friday Mashup challenge blog and see what the other Design Team members created this week.. This is a great Sketch to add to your Sketch book!
