For this card, I used a combination of Ippity and Unity stamps. The little whispy angel is the Unity image and the saying is from one of our newer Ippity sets. The embossed metal is from one of the TENsecond Studio molds and running it through the Big Shot Express. The metal is Barn Red also from TENseconds. The top of the embossed design is sanded, leaving the silver base color metal to shine through while maintaining the pretty red color in the embossed features.

Here’s a selection of cards that I’ve posted on my other blog using Ippity Stamps that I thought you may like to see here. I’ve been incorporating more colored metal embellishments on my cards using the TENseconds Studio products combined with Sizzix and Cuttlebug embossing folders. I demo this technique and many others at the Stampfest shows in Florida for Marco’s Paper. There is so much that can be done with the metal and molds that I really want to incorporate it more into my scrapping and stamping. Stay tuned!
On our Mini Mister/Tool/Marker Stands!
What is THAT you ask? It’s a cool metal stand, lightweight and sturdy, with 15 holes for holding items from your craft table. Especially made to hold Ranger’s Mini Misters and TENseconds Studios metal tools, the stand is paintable and comes with 4 self-adhesive rubber bumper feet! Guess what? It even holds Ciao and Sketch Copic Markers (or practically any marker for that matter) and most Tim Holtz Tools!
To jazz it up a bit, you can even use alcohol inks like shown on the samples below or paint!
