Good morning Ladies,
Here we are at the start of another week, Saturday afternoon and Sunday turned out to be lovely, we were able to sit and relax on the swing yesterday afternoon after we had been to do some shopping, we needed more bird food, they are costing nearly as much as child would to feed, they love Suet Cakes with fruit in and mealworms, I fill that feeder up daily, its lovely to see them though.
Today's card is one I made 3 years ago this week, it's made using my SU Woodland embossing folder, I will leave the description/method below and the link to the video tutorial that I made showing how I made it.
When I first saw this stamped effect I thought it was a really complicated stamping technique, therefore it would be way above my stamping ability, how wrong I was, it actually couldn't be simpler, my first attempt was a success, I even did my own version of a happy dance (well more of a happy chair wiggle) 😉 teehee!!
I did several more times to make sure it wasn't a 'fluke' but it worked perfectly each time.
You simply ink up the side of the Embossing Folder that has 'sizzix' on (the trees are recessed) using either your Brayer, come on I bet you have one somewhere that you bought while watching Barb Gray on Create and Craft, I blew the dust off of mine that had sat, untouched since the day I bought it!!
You can also use a sponge to ink it up just make sure you cover only the surface of the folder. Once you have your background colour down you can stamp whatever you like onto the surface of the folder and it will appear behind the trees. I saw a lovely card that had a vintage car in the background, another had the Beautiful You Stamp set lady, off for a walk in the forest, I am going to use a Deer Stamp, I think it would make a nice Christmas card, you could add some sparkle too for a Wintery scene.
I am going to try a different technique with this E Folder today, I will share it if it works out ok.
Have a lovely day ladies,
Love and hugs to all of you,
