February 22, 2011

I decided to try my hand at the Embossed Background technique as featured on Stamping 411.
To do this, you punch or die cut any shape(s). Then use the Dotto adhesive (easily removable with the adhesive remover) to adhere it to the back of a piece of paper/card stock. Then run it through your Big Shot much like you would with an embossing folder. Then peel the shapes off and even save them to reuse. I punched my shapes out of a thin cardboard, from the packages of DSP, actually.

My first card uses the little Heart punch and the Full Heart punch. I hope you can see them!

Stamp Sets: So Many Sayings, A Word For You
Ink: Garden Green and Early Espresso markers
Paper: Crumb Cake, Pear Pizzazz, Early Espresso textured
Tools: Tearing Edge, Full Heart punch, little Heart punch, Big Shot
Embellishments: hemp twine, Designer Buttons Neutrals Crumb Cake

My next card uses the (sadly) retired little star punch in the same way.

Stamp Sets: Sporting, Look Who's Turning
Ink: Basic Gray, Night of Navy, Real Red
Paper: Daffodil Delight, Night of Navy, Real Red, Basic Gray textured, Whisper White
Tools: Large Oval punch, little Star punch (retired), Big Shot
Embellishments: Real Red 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon, Jumbo Brad Neutrals silver
