INK TO PAPER TECHNIQUE
Ever wonder if there was a simple technique out there that would take your project to the next level yet not take hours to do? We all love a WOW project and we love it more when we can step it up with a simple technique. The first card below is a simple card project that was transformed to WOW in a matter of a few seconds in the card that follows. Let me show you how.
STAMPS: Everything Eleanor (w124162, c124164)
INK: Crumb Cake Ink Pad (126975), Early Espresso Ink Pad (126974), Raspberry Ripple Stampin’ Writer (126856 set)
CARDSTOCK: Crumb Cake (120953), Early Espresso (119686)
ACCESSORIES: Big Shot (113439), Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (127819), Dimensionals (104430), Stamping Spongs (101610), Naturals Designer Buttons (127554), Linen Thread (104199), Stitched Satin Ribbon (Raspberry Ripple 126845), Stampin’ Embossing Powder ( White 109132), Heat Tool (129053), Versa Mark (102283), Glue Dots (103683), Snail Adhesive (104332)
Fold a piece of 11” X 4 ¼” sheet of Crumb Cake CS in half. Place the front side of the card you just folded into the Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder and run it through the Big Shot on Tab 1. Keep the card in the folded position. Take the Crumb Cake ink pad and rub it onto the raised portion of the embossed card. Set this part aside.
Take a 2 ½” X 3 ¼” piece of Crumb Cake and stamp the large flower from the Everything Eleanor with Versa Mark and then stamp on the paper. Sprinkle White Embossing Powder on the stamped image and heat with Heat Tool until the powder melts to a shiny white.
Stamp the swirl image from the same set and stamp around the image in Crumb Cake. Color the flower in Raspberry Ripple. Wipe off excess that lays on top of the embossed image for a crisper, cleaner look.
Tear around the stamped image close to the edge. Using a sponge and Early Espresso Ink, sponge around the torn edges.
Adhere the Raspberry Ripple ribbon at the bottom edge of 3” X 4 1/8” piece of Early Espresso. Thread the button with Linen Thread and tie into a bow. Using Glue Dots, adhere to ribbon on left side.
Glue the Early Espresso piece of CardStock with the ribbon and button onto the Embossed front of the card. Be sure to center it. Put four dimensionals on the back of the floral image piece and adhere to the top of the Early Espresso Card Stock.
Now all you need is a fabulous greeting for the inside.
Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping,
