Faux Emboss Technique


Hello, it’s Tiffany here with a really quick and easy way to punch up those cards with a fun Faux Embossing Technique! All you need for this technique is the Design Memory Craft White Stamper’s PITT Pen, any shade of cardstock, a solid/silhouette stamp, and a matching Stamper’s Big White Pen.


I used the following additional supplies for my card: ditto. stamp (PS0661), Lawn Fawn (Dewey Decimal Petite Paper Pack, Trimmings Hemp Twine, and smile sentiment stamp), May Arts White Twill Ribbon, Crop-a-dial, silver eyelet, Kaisercraft Pearls.


First add ink to the stamp with the Stamper’s Big White Pen, stamp off onto the cardstock.


Now, repeat on top of the white ink but with the colored Stamper’s Big Brush Marker. Make sure the ink color coordinates with the cardstock you’re using. You may need to use a stamp positioner for this process. I just remembered my placement by using a grid mat. 


Repeat the pattern until entire piece of cardstock is covered! Now, you can use your work of art as a card front!

See how easy it is to execute this technique? I hope you try this one at home!
