The Bronc Rider

 Images are by Rubber Stamp Avenue, stamped in
Versa Mark and heat embossed with fine line copper powder.
Barbwire is a die from Cheery Lynn designs.
There is a faux snake skin strip towards the 
bottom which adds a real western/man flair.
The phrase is computer generated and is
the cowboy point of view.

More Chalked Embossing Folders

 I will tell you that I much much much
They go on so smooth and even.
Much easier to work with than the regular chalks.

Chalk An Embossing Folder

I embossed the white card stock.
Cut the paper to 4 x 5.25 or slightly smaller.
Now come the stamping part.  I strongly recommend
that a stamp positioner be used.  Of course
you have to realize that if I stamp it crooked, I will 
toss it.  That's my OCD kicking in.

Next is the chalking.
Then layer on a colored card stock
that accents whatever colors you have used
in the chalking.
I added some glitter glue dots
to the upper left corner.

I tend to mass produce these
type of cards.  So there are three different
versions.  You will be seeing the other two in the
days to come.

Here Fishy, Fishy, Fishy

Well I finally did it.  I bought a Cricut.
Is there a learning curve?  Oh yeah!
Is is fun?  Oh yeah!

The background is various fish stamps scattered
at random.  The edges have been sponged heavily
with light ink applied in the center.

I stamped the fish in various shades of brown, using
the stamp off method make the
stamped images faint.

Just A Little Glitz

Here is another Rubber Stamp Tapestry design.
I have a huge stash of glitter glue and have
found that that is just the perfect finishing touch
for these wonderful tiny stamp pictures.

The phrase is an old old old one from Stampendous.
A healthy stash of small phrase stamps is
a  must for any stamper.

The Lacy Oval  framing the stamped oval
is from Spellbinders.

The layering of papers adds a lot.
I think leaving a narrow border of white
from the white card base pulls the whole
design together.
