Frugality in crafting ... homemade embossing ink. Who would have thought it was a mixture of Vaseline, cooking oil and alcohol! One reviewer said this: "I find glycerin works really well and you don't get the oily bleed that can happen with oil and petroleum jelly. You can add watercolour paint or food colouring if you want to tint it. Works like a charm."

Pressure embossed, heat embossed, and ink resist techniques used for this paper (lots of photos and very detailed instructions)- looks like something I could do
Stamped on Kraft cardstock using Colorbox White pigment ink Then heat embossed with white embossing powder. Painted with Distress Inks & intensified with Copic markers Then painted over with Perfect Pearls.)
used alchol inks on glossy cardstock for my background. Stamped with versamark and embossed the Holly Stamp from Hero Arts in white and gold. Punched out squares and assembled them to give a different look to a card, and also the chance to use stamps that I don't have much inspiration with in any other way.
