Default Word by Word Background Stamp

Here is a useful tip:
Stamp with versamark on Brushed Gold, Silver or Copper paper. Then emboss with the same colour. Cut out the words and you have metalic word tags you can use on cards and scrapbook pages.
I keep a stock of these tags ready-made in the case with the stamp to be used whenever I need them.
22 words for C$24.95 makes it a great deal!

Oh! Great idea! Both my Word for Word background AND my brushed gold paper have been horribly neglected this year . . . I think that will change this afternoon!

Never would have thought of this! What a great way to use this background stamp, now that I have quite a collection of backgrounds!

Thanks for sharing!

I can't picture what this would look like and don't have any metallic paper to try it on- can you attach an example to the post?

TFS the idea.

I hate to say that I have never done an attachment before.
I have a digital camera.
If you walk me through it, I would be glad to try.

What a great idea! I got this BG stamp during the special but haven't tried it yet; I'll be giving this a try though!

Adding an attachment is really easy.
Upload the picture from your camera to your computer.
Then reply to this post like normal- but not using quick reply.
Instead of hitting "submit reply" scroll further down the page.
Hit the button called manage attachments. Right above the thread subcription.

Then click browse and find your file on the computer. Then hit upload.

That's all you have to do Post your comment. And your picture will be there.

There are size limitations- slightly smaller than the gallery- so it might tell you your picture is too big.
