Stampbord and Impression Obsession: Gio

More black Stampbord (and they did not mean to do the same thing). After Neil, Gio used the painted and embossed Stampbord tiles to cover a tin this time. 
With a touch of Fran-tage embossing enamel, you are guaranteed to get a beautiful tin to keep or offer. 

To decorate the Stampbord tiles: I patted the tiles with Versamark ink and then I poured over them some Cosmic Shimmer Aurora Embossing powder: viola black; after removing the excess powder I melted it with the heat tool. Then I stamped the tiles using Versamark ink and Stampendous Fran-tage embossing enamel: Aged Rose using Impression Obsession Floral Damask stamp.

I painted the Woodware Scrapbook in a tin: square with a mixture of Fresco Finish Paint Lilac, Snowflake and Orchid. While the tin was drying I started to make the flower: I used the already embossed back paper of the Claudine Hellmuth Sticky back canvas (used on this project), embossed with Sizzix Daisy Blast and Paisley Palooza embossing folders. I cut them using Tim Holtz Alterations: Bigz Die - Tattered florals, then I covered them with Cosmic Shimmer Aurora Embossing powder: Viola Black and the Stampendous embossing enamel: Aged Rose along the borders. I assembled the flower using a little brads for the center.

I glued the tiles and the flowers to the box lid, along with a coloured ribbon.
See you tomorrow


  1. Very, very pretty! I always love to see what Gio comes up with and I'm never disappointed. This tin would make such a beautiful gift.

  2. It's a beautiful project and I would never thought it was possible to emboss the Frantage on top of the Cosmic embossing powder without losing the stamp detail.

  3. What a gorgeous object, and thank you so much for all that detailed tutorial information!
