Still Stampin...

Yes, I'm still stamping (sometimes), certainly not as often as I would like! As a home schooling parent it seems that once school starts, I am so busy and preoccupied that I really have to try to find time to stamp. If it weren't for my stamp clubs and the stamp camps I have been trying to schedule, I might never find that time for me! Here is a sample of a card that one of my stamp clubs recently made. I LOVED the way it turned out. We were doing the faux tin sheet technique (which I am not even certain if that is the name of it or not, but that is what I have called it). We started with our card base (Real Red regular sized card) and ran it through the Big Shot with the Square Scallop Die. We cut a piece of Certainly Celery slightly smaller than the card base and then yet another piece of card stock a bit smaller than the Celery piece (it does not matter which color since it will be covered anyway). Cover this piece with Tin Foil, just bend it around the edges of your card stock, and run it through your Finial Press Embossing Folder. When it comes out it looks just like those tin sheets that are found on old ceilings. It is just the neatest effect! The Old Olive panel uses the Winter Post set and Many Merry Messages. All of the images are stamped in Old Olive (some stamped off before stamping, to give dimension). The deer is stamped with Versa Mark and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Add a cute ribbon to the top and a brad and I might have my Christmas card design for this year!
