Hot off the press – brand new weekly deals from Stampin’ Up! with some of my favorite things! First, check them out…….
Ok – first let’s talk about those Peekaboo Frames. When I first saw those I thought “I will never use those”. Then I made a holiday countdown calendar for which that die was essential and bit the bullet and bought it. I have to admit that I now use that die ALL. THE. TIME! The little shapes are often just what a project needs to add that little surprise or fun element and you can even cut out the centers to get some adorable little frames.
Now, moving on to the Designer Frames Embossing Folder, here is another tool I reach for over and over. You can emboss directly on your project or, one of my favorite techniques is to emboss the shape, fussy cut with my snips or cut the oval with one of the Ovals Framelits and mount with Stampin’ Dimensionals on the same color cardstock for a gorgeous sophisticated look.
And last, let’s talk texture! The Argyle and Chevron Textured Embossing Folders are just perfect for adding rich, defined texture on a project with just a spin through the Bog Shot. And……here’s an insider secret…..you can use ANY Texture Embossing Folder as a STAMP! Just ink up the RAISED side of the design you want with a brayer (easiest but you can do pad-to-surface inking), insert your cardstock and use your (cleaned!) brayer to evenly roll the entire surface. Remove your cardstock and – VOILA! – stamped texture!!! Who knew? Well, now YOU do, too!
