Blending on Foil

Hi Stamping Friends.  I was doing some "experimenting" with our new Blendabilities.  These two cards are the result.  The top card was done using aluminum foil, and swiping 3 different Blendabilities and adding a Stazon image (from the stamp set World of Dreams).  Then I embossed it with clear Versamark.  It's a technique called Faux Enamel.  The bottom pic uses our Silver Foil sheets, stamped Mixed Bunch with Stazon and colored with the Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities.  Those babies are soooo versatile!

RIP - Big Shot

Hi Stamping Friends ... After 5 years of use, my Big Shot finally bit the dust. It served me well! Anyone who has been in any of my classes knows how much that poor baby was used (and abused)!!!!!!  But not to worry, I received a FREE Big Shot 2 years ago (thinking it was going to die then -- you know, once the warranty was up), so at least I'm right back in business.

And ... here's a card using my poor baby!

This is one of the cards we made in our Technique Class (that I learned in Stamping School).  The Chevron Embossing folder was run through the Big Shot.  The technique was masking over water colors.
