A Study in Silver

One of the real joys of being a demonstrator is having fellow stamp addicts to swap with, learn from and hang out with.

MelissaScandanvianAt our last gathering, Melissa Smith brought this card to swap. Isn't it lovely?

She used the fabulous Scandinavian Season stamp set from the Holiday mini catalog and the Holidays and Wishes set. Night of Navy is the base color and it's paired with Brushed Silver and Shimmery White cardstock.

The ink is Silver Encore and the images are embossed with Silver embossing powder.

A bit of white taffeta ribbon and a sparkly rhinestone brad completes the elegant look.

Embossing is the reason I first got hooked on stamping. My friend Joy showed me how to emboss and I was amazed — it seemed like magic to me. I still love to emboss and I still think it's magic!

What's the one technique that hooked you? Do you still use it?
