Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #85~ Impress Us!

Believe me when I tell you that this week's Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge left a MESS on my desk!  The More Mustard layer was stamped in Versamark and I added clear Embossing Powder.  Next, I ran the Cajun Craze cardstock through the  Big Shot using my Fancy Fan Letterpress Plate that I had inked up in Versamark as well.  After it came through, I added the clear embossing powder and set it.  I love how the reverse embossing becomes such a feature when you do this!

So get out those folders, plates and embossing folders and come show us what you come up !  I can't wait to see!

  5. Angela!! I love every element you added to this fabulous fall card! Look at all of that fussy-cutting, too. *sigh* I always love visiting your work. It's always so inspiring. That stamp set is sitting on my desk right now ready to ink up because of this beauty. So is the letterpress plate. Although I haven't really "mastered" that one yet. Haha! Hope you enjoyed your weekend! Hugs!
