Faux Emboss Technique

Fauxembosscardshot

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!

    Thanks, Lisa. Things will get easier as I get familiar with the website.

  • Ruby C on Be Strong Tag Using Texture Gems - With Lisa

    I keep looking at your tag because there is so much too see. Wonderful and creative use of products, beautiful shimmer and fun texture. That is a pretty interesting stamp too. I don't have any glitter gems yet but they do look like they would be fun to experiment with.

    Dear Jen, Our son is an astrophysicist. I will absolutely love making something like this for him. I am not nearly as talented as you are, so there will be a few (many) changes, but I know it will make him smile. Thank you. Dee

    Lisa, your tag is awesome! I love, love, love the beautiful colors and textures you chose, as well as the way you put them together. I opened an email today from Faber-Castell about the Ustream Class on Wed., May 27, 2015. I watched the DIY All Occasion Party Banner and made a comment to be entered in the giveaway. The demonstrator (I couldn't find her name anywhere) said that if we comment on the blog we have a chance at winning the grand prize. I couldn't find a link to your blog anywhere on the Ustream page. I went to Faber-Castell website and couldn't find anywhere to write a comment. I went through the Ustream video several times to find out how to get to the page where I was to leave a comment. FINALLY, I discovered that Faber-Castell has a blog. I've looked throughout this blog and couldn't find a place to leave a comment about joining you for the Ustream class on May 27th. When I browsed through the site, the sections are not dated so I had to keep searching. At last I settled on writing to you here on your texture tag demo. Where should I leave a comment to register for the grand prize? Thank you!
