Good morning everyone! While Freida and I were shopping at Archivers she found some flocked paper and pointed it out to me. She didn't get a piece of it until I said "have you ever seen how they emboss velvet with rubber stamps? You can do that with this paper." Well, since my saying that made her buy some of it, I thought I'd show that it can be done.

here's a close up of the embossing
Mary from Hot Potatoes rubber stamps is the person who came up with embossing on velvet with rubber stamps. You can see her instructions here.
The results with the suede paper are a little different because you don't get the shiny look, but it's done pretty much the same way. It's best to use a solid image. I spray my stamp with water and then lay the suede paper on top of the stamp face down. Place a hot iron on the back side of the paper and press for a good minute.
Don't worry, you won't hurt your rubber stamp.
The details on this card - after embossing the stamp I cut it out and then glued the three jewels in for the holly berries. I then matted it with the red card stock and ran a bead of glue around. The glitter was a real mess! It's that tinsely glitter and it got everywhere. You should see my craft room, and my tape gun keeps picking it up!
Well, our temperatures are sure cold now! I figure if it's gonna be this cold, the least it could do is snow! None in the forecast though. I'm glad tomorrow is Friday. I have a lot to do this weekend. We are going to get our tree up and I really want to wrap up all of my gifts so I can get them out of my way!
Wishing you all a fabulous day, and thanks for looking!
