Elegant Cone

1:02 PM Edit This 3 Comments »

I made this wonderful cone by combining products from two of my all time favorite companies~The Paper Temptress and Michael Strong Rubber Stamps. The paper is a new sheet called "Touche black" and it looks and feels like nothing you've ever seen before!! To me it feels like a cross between paper, plastic, and foam. Really a luxurious cardstock;it's a breeze to work with! As a note, I did discover that I had to score it with my scoring tool rather than just folding it over a ruler since the cardstock is heavier than the regular background-type cardstock (like I show in my Paper Cone tutorial below). The gold stock is from PT too; it's called Antique Gold. I ran it through my Cuttlebug to give it some texture and a nice design.

I found the Touche' Black very user friendly with VersaMark ink and embossing powder! I used the Michael Strong stamp "Dragonfly" which was stamp with VM ink and embossed with gold embossing powder. I think the result was dy-no-mite!!

The black diamond shaped gems are from a sheet of stickers I purchased at Michael's as well as the hanging beads. I purchase them at Michael's or WalMart~they are sold by the yard for around 3 or 4 bucks a yard/package. The ferns (I call them "weeds" LOL) came from Michael's too. The gold studs are from my stash of stuff, so it was probably a mill ends store purchase. :)

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy another Paper Cone!!
