Project three from our class is this card using the Inset Embossing Technique. So EASY! Apply punched or die cut pieces on your card stock. Insert in Square Lattice Embossing folder and run through your Big Shot and.... Voila' this beautiful paper appears. If you have any question regarding these techniques feel free to email me. I love to share.
I love the show Project Runway and I love it when Tim Guns says "make it work"....well stretch the use of your Embossing folders and Texturz plates with ink. This card we inked the wood grain Texturz Plate with Early Espresso ink. It really made the cardstock look like a tree.
We made this card in my Big Shot Academy Class. I cased it from another SU demo, but do not recall her name. The technique is called Crayon Resist. Using glossy paper in your embossing folder, emboss paper but before removing from folder you will rub your white crayon over the raised image of the pattern. Remove paper from embossing folder and sponge with your favorite colors. After sponging, you want to "rub-off" the crayon with a soft tissue. Very simple technique. LOVE it.
I have to admit....I LOVE Designer Series Paper, also known as DSP. It is so versatile. Check out the newest Designer Series Paper being off...
