Kitchen foil will work - try sticking it to cardstock and running it through an embossing folder. You can then spread some acrylic paint or alcohol ink on there to "age" it, getting well into the recessed areas of the design. If you use paint, just wipe over the high spots with a damp ktchen towel before it's fully dry, if you use alcohol ink, use a sanding block or piece of sandpaper to lightly sand the high spots and expose the shiny silver again.

You can also get foil tape cheaply in hardware stores (in fact it's often available in 1 shops here in the UK so worth trying your dollar stores - it tends to be 151 brand here). That's quite wide and it's sticky on one side with a release paper on it. That works great with die cut lettering or shapes stuck down onto card and then the foil tape stuck over the top. You can use a paper stump to refine round the outline of the shapes if you want to.

I came across the thread 'triple stamping' in the techniques section yesterday, demonstrated beautifully on this ladys blog
Although the card she does is done with a floral stamp, the actual technique would make great male cards, I think, using the clocks/watch stamps etc.

Thanks for the help with the foil. I will try kitchen foil and if not go in search of something stateside that would work for the tape. Love that triple stamping technique too. Loving all these ideas.

The foil I used on my cards. Is from Lifestyle crafts. I found it in the clearance section. It's metal tape with a backing on it. This way I can run it through my cuttlebug machine.


Today I found some metal tape on a roll. Not sure if it would work the same way.

I live in a family of men. Old barns, mills, anything farm related are favorites for them. As a matter of fact, I was looking for a pick up truck earlier this year. I found one on Stampin' Up! and that lead me to buy more of their stamps and then I became a demo lol! Next on my list is the tractor stamp that Stampin' Up! has.

Gorgeous samples ladies. I just need to find my mojo. So many supplies, so much desire, so little actual creating.

I'd forgotten about how much I like retiform for masculine cards. I made this for my FIL's birthday this weekend. I know he's had a retiform card from me before, but at his age I don't think he'll remember .
