Blog Hop/Launch Party!

Hello!!! I am so very excited to be sharing with you one of my projects I did for this fun blog hop!
I have absolutely fallen in love with the Teresa Collins eBosser!  
It is the easiest most versatile tool I have had! 
The embossing folders are not only fabulous designs but they are huge! This is the only machine that does
 8.5 x 11 and 8.5 x 12.  Great sizes that will help you create fun and elegant projects. 
So excited that it is going to be launched Tuesday September 17 on HSN!
This machine is so versatile.  
You can use any embossing folders, die cuts, steel ruled dies and even thin dies. 
It will emboss cardstock, duct tape, foil, chipboard, grungeboard and even thin tin.
If you use dies with it, it will cut though all of the above as well as fabric! 
Fabulous I tell you....just fabulous.  
Now to share a little tutorial.
 
This was such a fun little project and one that would be fabulous as a Christmas gift, hostess gift or any gift for that matter.  But I'm keeping mine, wink. 
For this project I used a hanging sign I found at a discount store on clearance.  
It wasn't something I would have used at all, but I like the "bones" of it.
Now on to the tutorial on how to create faux tin out of regular cardstock with your eBosser.
 I embossed a piece of white Bazzill Cardstock.
  I cut a 12x12 piece to 8.5 x 12 and embossed both pieces.
Then cut the 8.5 x 11 piece into two inch squares. 
 Then I painted them with Silver Adirondack Paint.
Let that dry, then lightly sand away some of the paint.
 This next step is where the magic happens.
Using a ink blending tool lightly apply Gathered Twigs and Vintage Photo Distress Inks.
As you can see below this will really highlight the embossed pattern.
You will want to ink all the edges as well.
I cut a thin piece of chipboard to fit the top of the plaque.  
Adhere all the ink and painted embossed squares to the chipboard. 
Adhere that to the plaque. 
I then cut a piece of cardstock to fit the center of the plaque, painted and inked it up and then 
popped it with a scrap piece of chipboard.  I attached the clip with a decorative brad.
Then used Glossy Accents to adhere that to the base.  
Added some note paper and I have a decorative note place that I can hang in my kitchen! 
Here is the list to hop on over too.  
A ton of fun and fabulous projects! 
Don't forget to leave a comment on each blog if you want to be entered in for the prizes.
