Hello from Central California! I have been trying to figure out how to get in craft time while working, helping my son in his new home, making curtains…just seem to run out of steam. Currently I am am taking the Holiday Card Workshop 2013 over at http://www.onlinecardclasses.com/. These projects are from day 2.
The above technique was a challenge for me. I did not have any die cut’s that would work this way…Most of the die cut’s I have are borders, or frames. So, I did dig up the die cut’s in the above card. Looking back, I should have used a solid card stock to create this in-laid look.
Yep, the greeting, and the flower and leaf are inlaid. I had never seen that technique before, so was excited to try it….
Not happy with the result..however, I can’t wait to try it again with a solid paper. Funny, though, you could hardly make out the flower and leaf so I decided to use my stickles over it. Not sure if you can tell by the photo, but it really looks like an old fashion appliqué.
Ever have one of those days? Where nothing works? This technique was another, where I did not have good die cuts for the technique. We were to use the positive and the negative cuts and embossing paste. I used the embossing paste, which I had not used in years. I used the embossing paste on the blue background with a stencil. Loved that effect. Was very impressed with the product, it had not dried out. I think, this is going to be a fun thing to use in my future projects.
Well, that’s all for now, was not going to post these, then decided, heck, I bet we all have off days!
Each Wednesday, crafters from all over the world post what’s on there desk on Wednesdays. Well, this is all that’s on my desk today!
