    I’m from montreal too and was wondering where did you get your embossing ink and embossing powder

    Yes 3 different stamps.  I used a guide to stamp the big one first, to align the corner, then I stamped the "passeport" and the date as best as I could.  Bought the stuff at omer de serres.  Walmart has some stuff, but mine is renovating these days and didn't have anything.  I got the gun from my aunt who does a lot of scrapbooking.. maybe you could ask around.  I don't know if you're french but I would gladly lend you my passeport stamp!

     

    Also, I had first bought some silver powder that had a lot of glitter and first thought: "wow that's going to be really cool" but ended up being too glittery and we couldn't easily make out what was written.  The powder I ended up with is quite dark and is just called "silver".  There was a canvas with example at the omer de serres at the Dix 30, dunno if others have it (hadn't seen it the first time around).

     

    Hope that helps!

      Unfortunately my passports have to be in English, but thanks so much for the offer .

      For the stamp in the middle with the map, did you just upload what you wanted to Simonstamp. For some reason I didn’t even think of omer de serree, I have one close to my house I will check it out tonight

        Yes I uploaded everything since they didn't have my fonts available.  It was really quite easy and they made sure that it was the correct size.  Very happy with their service!  Have fun at Omer de Serres.. man than place is bad for budget! haha
