Throwback Thursday – Embossed Foil Card

I haven’t done a Throwback Thursday for quite a while.  Today’s card features a technique from October 2011 called Embossed Metal Technique.  The older card used Jack of All Trades stamp set and the web embossing folder plus some accent images from Spooky Bits stamp set.  The metal on this card was a thick and sturdy piece of craft metal.

For my new card, I wanted to feature more of the embossed piece, but didn’t have a thick piece of craft metal at the ready so I used aluminum foil instead.  You do need to be careful to not tear the larger piece, but it is quite economical and sure to be found in your cupboard.  I went to our lovely Woodlands embossing folder for this card plus I used the Peace This Christmas stamp set.

Well today is the day! Stampin' Up! is offering 15% off all stamps (excluding hostess stamps, digital stamps, and stamps in a product bundle).

I am sweetening the deal with my customers for an additional 5% off! You can shop online until 11:59 pm (it will get very busy at that time) or call me and place it before 9:00 pm.

I also thought I would post a bunch of recent class samples to get your creative juices going. I'll be posting several times today so be sure to come back and see everything!

UPDATE – The stamps include our WHEELS too!!!!

Here is my second spooktacular sale card!  Did you know we have a new stamp pad called Illuminate Glimmer Watermark?  You can find this on page 23 of the Holiday Mini Catalog.  It is perfect for a night sky or a scary pumpkin face!  The illuminated pumpkin faces in the background remind me of my favorite Halloween movie – It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!  I'd sit with Linus in the pumpkin patch; wouldn't you?

 P.S.  The bat is made using our new butterfly punch.  Punch one butterfly out of a scrap piece of paper, and then using the punched out piece, punch the bottom half of it again for this whimsical bat.  Add a gem for a little sparkle!
