Don’t you love it when you finally get around to trying out a new technique! You’ve seen it online and you keep thinking I really must try that out. Well I’d been thinking just that about this technique – you might also see it called Faux Designer Series Paper or as Faux Material. However I left it so long that I was worried that I’d not be able to show off my creations because the technique uses the Square Lattice Embossing folder from the Summer Mini, but yay, Stampin’Up! has kept this folder on as one of several items from the Summer Mini that you can continue to order!
This technique has the potential to create so many new ideas that I wish I had more hours in the day to play with it. For the technique you need an embossing folder with a close pattern – hence why the Square Lattice design is so perfect! On your base card either stamp an image and colour in or as I have done in my samples here, adhere punched or die cut shapes. Once it is all dry place your card piece inside the embossing folder and run it through your Big Shot and hey presto look at what you have created!
My card above uses the Big Shot Sizzlits Birds & Blooms dies and the one below uses Sizzlits Little Leaves along with Embosslits die Beautiful Wings. Please excuse the obviously crooked ribbon placement on that card. A late night card making session obviously had me not seeing straight!!!! I didn’t notice it until I loaded the photo on here!
Go on and give this great technique a try – you will be very pleased with the results!
I’ve done more but those ones will remain a secret for now as they are my swaps for our upcoming Stampin’Up! Convention right here in Melbourne next month!!!!!!!
