My g.d.spent the night & wanted to make a card for her dad. Last Sat. we learned a fun new technique from a friend. So simple/easy & boy she did a good job ( yes, this grandma has "braggin rights". ).
You cover a pc. of cardstock with foil ( we used a cheap brand), then run it thru the cuttlebug ( can use any type of embossing machine) with the "distress" embossing folder.( I am finding that the simple ones like the "distress" or the "swiss dots" turn out the best, altho she did one with "hearts" & a "thanks " that turned out pretty good too. )"Color/pounce" some A.I. on the foil piece. Stamp an image onto clear acetate with Stazon ink.
Put the pieces together for a card. Easy/Peasy.
Stamps used: Vintage car by Stampabilities
Building stamp above the "car": I have no idea.
Mary started a yahoo group called stampingbloggers & posted a question for us to "blog" about; asking us what our favorite stamp company is ( besides the one we sell for, if we are a consultant).
My answer is:
I can't really say I have one or 2 favorites. There are way too many. I am finding out that I like the "vintage " looking stamps -see above photo that my g.d. made. I also love the "collage look, but I can not get "it" to make my own collages, so I find stamps that are allready "collaged". I think in some of my past post I shared a few cards that I did. I also like some of Tim Holtz stamps as some of them are pretty easy for me to put together witthout them looking too sloppy.
Anyway... thats my story(for now)....
