Lovely as a Tree

20180415_134958

Lovely as a Tree Stamp Set has been in the Stampin' Up! Catalog for a longggg time because it is a true CLASSIC. Today, I used it to try the BLACK ICE TECHNIQUE: Lightly drag an Archival Black Ink Pad over metallic foil paper. Then stamp your image in black ink. Dry completely with a heat tool. Heat emboss the entire layer using Versamark Ink and Clear Embossing Powder. I personally would have named this technique "tintype," because it looks so much like early photography!!

20180415_135027

This one uses Gold Foil. SECRET: I got a big blob of black ink on this foil and didn't like it. So...I punched out the trees and threw away the blob!! LOL I actually like this layout!

Don't these look old fashioned??

How to use Thinlits as Stencils

20170923_100133

Autumn has arrived and I love playing with fall colors!  Did you know you can use thinlit dies to create stencils in a SNAP??

20170922_174239

Using Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies #143751, die cut the basic leaf shape in the center of a quarter sheet of cardstock to create an instant stencil.

20170922_174456

Selected three or more fall color ink pads and coordinating sponges.

20170922_174718

Lay the negative of the die cut on Whisper White Cardstock and sponge on colors, blending as you go. Pounce the sponge on the ink pad to pick up color and then pounce or scrub that color inside the stencil. It's best to start with the lightest color and work to the darker color. Blending is simple and smooth.

20170923_093408

I created a pile of colorful autumn cards that will go out to some of my North Star Stampers Demonstrator Team. The base card is Basic Gray and the embellishment is the darling Smoky Slate 1/2" Gingham Ribbon.

20170713_164713

The majestic mighty Oak! A long-lived tree and a long-lived stamp set! It's been in the catalog for YEARS! This is such a detailed image and was perfect for my recent Birthday Time Class. That GREAT brick background was created by applying Crumb Cake ink pad directly to the back inside of the Brick Wall Embossing Folder #138288, inserting the front of the Crumb Cake Card and running thru the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine. A really masculine effect for guy cards!
