There were 2 periods in my life when I lived in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois, which was settled by non-indigenous people in the mid-1800s. This was akin to living in Bendigo, Victoria; a nice, regional city overshadowed by the state's big city. There were a lot of original/heritage buildings with original tin ceilings, and a big push to restore ones that had been covered up or removed in the intervening years. I suppose this is why I'm such a fan of the Tin Tile 3D Embossing Folder.
I CASE'd this card from Julie Warnick. She sponged her layers with Crumb Cake to make it look more vintage, but I preferred to keep mine cleaner. I also omitted her large sentiment.
I stamped the images from Country Home in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Whisper White and coloured in with Stampin' Blends Markers. Then I fussy-cut it out to attach to the card. The Tin Tile embossing folder on the Silver Foil Sheets looks so good, doesn't it?
I made this during my July Zoom Crafting Session...I hope you'll choose a project and join us in August! All the details are below.
Here's what I used to make this card:
Upcoming Classes & Events
August Monthly Card Class
Due to current Covid-19 conditions in Melbourne I can only offer this class as a kit/online version...we are back to Phase 3 restrictions until at least mid-August.
I will provide a kit and written instructions to make 5 cards. Participants will be able to add sentiments as desired with their own stamps and inks. Kits can be picked up from my residence in Melbourne using safe, social distancing protocols, or I can ship via Australia Post tracked satchel. Come give this a try - perfect if you've always wanted to try my classes and can't attend in person.
Online (Zoom) Group Assembly Session: Saturday, 15 August, 1:00 pm AEST (optional – click here to find your local time). Meeting link will be shared when you place your order.
Card Kit: includes all the pieces and printed directions needed to create 5 cards. You will need to supply your own stamps and ink for sentiments, as well as having basic adhesive (like Multipurpose Liquid Glue) for assembly.
Cost: $30 + $8.95 optional shipping. Australian crafters only, sorry.
RSVP Deadline for Kits is Sunday, 9 August.
Written Tutorial: Purchase the instructions including measurements (in centimetres and inches) and create along with us using your own supplies. You can substitute papers and colours based on what you have. International customers welcome!
I've been paper-crafting since 2006, and an Independent Stampin' Up! demonstrator since 2010. I love sharing my craft with others, either through classes or by creating special cards and gifts that meet their needs. Join me in creating fun!
