Well, I’m off to a very late start for you today, and I am so sorry. I had my tut ready for posting but needed some “foo foo” for behind the pumpkins. Mom and I went to all the thrift stores today, and I managed to find some good deals. Unfortunately, the “foo foo” can’t be seen very well. On a more positive note, today’s tutorial shows you how you can recycle coffee lids. Oh, how I hate to throw them out, so I have quite an accumulation. I take after my eccentric father who saved and recycled before it was cool to do so. I’m sure I was the only kid in my neighbourhood that got taken to farmer’s fields to dig holes so dad could place an accumulation of paper products to rot and save the environment. Yes indeed, my dad was a very eccentric man. Maybe I’ll share more stories with you. In the meantime, pull out your Cuttlebug and get creating rusted metal.
- Foil top from coffee or yogart
- Cuttlebug embossing folder
- Orange acrylic paint
- Paper towel
With your Cuttlebug, emboss tin.
Paint acrylic paint onto tin.
Carefully, wipe away the acrylic paint from the popped out image.Â You will also wipe some of the deeper set colour, but that is okay, just do not wipe it all away.Â Your rusted metal is now ready to use in your project or card.
This card measures 5″ x 5″.Â All paper is from K&Co.Â Boo! was stamped onto black cardstock using a white ink pad.Â Pumpkins were stamped onto orange paper, and the witch was stamped onto whiteÂ Â Bats were cut out from the paper.Â The pumpkin on the right has pop dots added to the back.Â Twigs on pumpkins came from “foo foo” at the Good Will shop.
