Autumn Ink Blending with Distress Oxide Inks + GIVEAWAY!

Happy Friday, all! Today is the first day of Stamptember, and that means a boatload of new stamps, dies, and stencils hit the Simon Says Stamp store! See the entire release HERE! This post is part of a blog hop featuring lots of inspiration from the new release. Make sure to check out the blog hop info at the bottom of this post.

I thought it would be fun to do some ink blending using the new Debra Stencil, so I picked out some “autumn-ish” colors of Distress Oxide Ink: Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade, Seedless Preserves, Fired Brick, and Vintage Photo. I am in love with this color combination! I think I might have to break it out a few more times this autumn before I head into all my holiday cards.

For the greeting area of the card, I gold embossed a leaf stamp from the Fractile Leaves stamp set on white cardstock. I also gold embossed the “Hello” from the Live Well stamp set on vellum.
