- The First card is using the old car die, and cogs by Tim Holtz. This was for a man, no frills. Embossing was highlighted with Inca Gold, The cogs were cut out and also inked with the Inca Gold in various colors to get that rusted metallic effect. The car: a delight to make. I used a silver embossing powder and layered it several times to get that raised effect. Then I used a thick clear embossing powder, almost like raw sugar in size and sprinkled that on. It gave a corroded effect to the metal. The car was colored with the metallic paste as well. This was layered onto yardstick that had been distress, a tag added with a Tim Holtz element and some brads, a little ribbon and finished. One of these times I will photo the process, but until then, just eye candy.
- the second was using the clock die, also Tim Holtz. Can you tell I love Tim and his distress line!!! This too is a simple card. There are die cuts, distressing, and inking with the metallic paste. The embossing was highlighted with the metallic paste as well. The tag was cut using a Spellbinders die, all layered onto printed card stock, then a brown card base and tied with a brown sparkling ribbon. Simple and neat. Not sure who the stamp was from, suspect Infinity Stamp Company. I was needing something to tie in the clock and birthday, this worked just fine. It was a man's card, no Frills.
- Until next time, happy stamping, crafting or enjoying a little bit of "something"
