Lori's Luscious Lair

This card was done with a Tim Holtz stamp, embossed in a great powder that I forget the name of....Lori talked me into using it. It looks like rust! Love it. The background is painted paper embossed in a folder and sanded lightly, so it looks like pressed tin. The strip is from the painted paper, with plain copper embossing powder, using the same stamp from the gold circle (which was one of Lori's candy boxes recycled).
This one has gold and mohogany swirls stamped on the cardstock, the same photo stamp embossed the same as the one above. Then I used a piece of red and gold painted paper for the photo frame and a clock embossed in gold and used gold eyelets on the photo and the clock face. it was a little to plain yet, so I used a small piece of gold paper with another clock face to give it a finished look.

This one, Lori was kind enough to give me the pastel plaid center piece and let me use her sizzix to die cut the vine from the remainder of my gold & red painted paper. The butterflies are K&C chipboard.
And the final piece is this gorgeous ATC that Lori made and gave me. Stunning isn't it? I love it and I had so much fun. We were both very relaxed and found we both liked several styles and stamp companies. Wonderful day for me.

That Lori is just a hoot! I just love her though I have never met her face-to-face. How do you two know each other? She's a talented gal, that's for sure!
