Robot Swap - Artist Trading Cards

I don't know how my friend Elizabeth keeps coming up with these swap ideas, but she's got about a million of them!  This time, the theme is Robots!

So I'm ginning around trying to find inspiration for this theme and I am having the worst luck in the world finding Robot Stamps online.  I call up Elizabeth to complain and she says, "hold on a minute".  She comes back and tells me that she's ordered some and that I can use them.  Yay!

So she ordered the Technologic Clear Stamp by Kaisercraft and says she'll use the top, if I want, I can use the bottom.  Well now, that's a wonderful little robot, so of course I said yes.

I actually made these cards while at her house for a craft day.  Many of the supplies used I have no real idea what they are because I went digging through her studio.

Materials Used (as I can remember):

Distress Ink - Gathered Twigs & Antique Linen
TCW Stencil - Gears 6x6
Tim Holtz Alterations Sizzix Dies - Gadget Gears
Various Patterned Papers
StazOn Metallic Ink - Silver
Ranger Archival Ink - Jet Black

The Word Stamps used for "Create" and "Inspire" are of some small wooden word set of Elizabeth's as well as the Numbers stamp - it's a large wooden stamp.

A couple of notes....

The StazOn Metallic Ink is unbelievably opaque and dries very quickly.  It's a little weird on the sponge pad (you have to add the ink from a bottle and scrape across the pad - which makes the pad very stiff and dry feeling after you put the top back on) but it is amazing silver ink.

I'm very grateful to my dear friend for letting me use her supplies.  This was such a fun day and a fun swap!
