Poster Tidings embossed card

Hello!!  It's a new month which means... it's Stamp of the Month Blog hop time.

If you're coming from Kim's blog you're heading in the right direction!!  If you're just starting here... no problem- you'll circle around and find hers at the end.

This month's set is called Poster Tidings and features two stamps in the "subway" style art that is popular right now.

I used the Autumn themed stamp to create my card. 
Cardstock:  Autumn Terracotta, black and white Daisy.
Embossing powders: black and gold
inks:  versamark, Crème Brulee, Goldrush, Autumn Terracotta
Embellishments:  Black/grey sparkles,  black glitter trim

I used a sponge to apply the 3 ink colors to the white piece.  Then using clear versamark I inked the stamp and stamped it over the sponged panel.  I embossed in black.
I embossed the edges of the black cardstock with gold... and I actually mixed gold and black embossing powder to emboss the edges of the Autumn Terracotta paper.
This card is sooo much prettier in real life!!

Head on over to Allisa's blog to check out her project!

Don't forget!!!  Our stamp of the month sets are always $17.95 or only $5 with a purchase of $50 or more.  In September you can also add an exclusive Triple Stamp Set for only $10...  So a $50 purchase... and for only $15 more you can have approx. $65.85 worth of stamps!!
