Sorry Blog for neglecting you! It has been a r-e-a-l-l-y long time since I last posted – just over 10 months.
Today I am part of an awesome Blog Hop with a bunch of very creative & talented Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators, including the ever-so-talented Sue Madex, whose Blog you would have arrived from. This month we are showing you various techniques, that can be used on your cards, scrapbook pages or 3D projects.
I LOVE this easy technique, that I am going to show you. It’s called Kissing – with a twist – it’s used with a Big Shot Embossing Folder. This technique works best with a solid image stamp – not an outlined image stamp.
These are the basic products you need – light coloured ink pad, darker coloured ink pad, solid image stamp, embossing folder & a brayer.
You need to ink up your stamp using the light coloured ink pad (eg. Wisteria Wonder), ink up the inside of your embossing folder (either debossed side or embossed side – both sides work well) with the dark coloured ink pad (eg. Elegant Eggplant) using your Brayer, with your stamp which has been inked, press stamp onto the inked embossing folder, lift off & stamp onto either Very Vanilla or Whisper White cardstock.
What you will see is a pretty pattern highlighted on your image. Check out my design below.
The purple flower is created by using the embossed side of the folder & the blue flower below is using the debossed side of the folder.
Cardstock: Basic Black, Whisper White & Regals Patterned Paper pack
