    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: bzzzeee asks: "There's a hardware store supply that's used as faux metal when embossed with an embossing folder, not embossing powder. What is it called?"
    A: Sounds like aluminum tape - you might also find it as foil tape or HVAC tape. It has a strong, permanent adhesive on one side and a brown paper backing which makes it really nice for any kind of die cutting or embossing. Here are a few tutorials that can be done using foil tape:
    Faux Tin Tiles
    Impressions of Tarnished Foil
    Faux Metal Figures
     
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Desert Stamper has ideas for the Die Cutting Napkins tutorial: "All I can say is, "WOW!" This technique is absolutely gorgeous! Thanks so much for sharing your discovery with all of us. I can hardly wait to try it myself. I don't happen to have any white napkins on hand, so I'm going to try paper towels."
