I used to love the game "Acrophobia" online and it went away a few years ago :( but I won a little contest with them.
If making ACROs is fun for you, you should go to Talk to the Ham blog. She own Hambo Stamps which are too funny! My faves are the fractured funnies!
I'm not affiliated, just offering my opinion. ;)

I grew tired of my old banner and style of the blog and thought, well, change is good...sometimes. So I set out to find and alter a template to suit me and design a new banner. I settled on this one. It originally had guitars on it, but I removed them and added my own designs. I lost all my links and music, but I'll get them back slowly as I get to blog hopping.
So...the change...it's good, bad, or what change? - you haven't blogged in so long, I don't even know how I ended up here!

After not stamping for months, I feel like a newbie stamper all over again. Thanks to my Inkstainers friends, who never let me forget I'm a stamper!
I've learned that people recycle/tear apart their cards, for the bits or embellishments, when they are done enjoying their received cards so....
The tag has a magnet on the back and there is a magnet of the same shape on the card. To open it, you just pop off the magnet. Then when you are done looking at the card, you have a magnet you can steal off it. lol
I'm not sure this technique looks like faux silk, but I adore it anyway. Basically, you stamp, cover image with glue and press crumpled tissue paper on it. I'm not a fan of glue as it leaves the c/s a bit wonky, but I liked this one anyway. (and don't say, "just iron it" 'cause I don't iron. lol)
The holidays were hard and I didn't think I'd make even one card. I did though, for Dh's family. I only scanned one, but they were the same techique.
This is glossy resist with shiny, silver mirror card behind, but I sanded it for a different effect.
