Hi there, Melissa here and it is my turn to share a Project of the Week with you on The House That Stamps Built blog.
This week, I want to share some Embossing Folder Backgrounds with you.
Have you ever made EF Backgrounds? If not, they are a tiny bit messy, but a ton of fun. I like to make several at one time so that they are ready whenever I need them.
Gather a variety of embossing folders, inks, sprays and some cardstock. I like to pre-cut 1/4 sheets of cardstock so that I can made several backgrounds at a time.
Apply the ink to either of the interior sides of the embossing folder, if you would like the inks to "move" around a bit, spritz with a light mist of water. Lay cardstock in folder and emboss.
Look at all of these awesome backgrounds!
Grab some of your favorite Repeat Impressions rubber stamps and have some fun creating beautiful cards and projects.
Here are two cards I made:
I used the Repeat Impressions Tulip Bouquet #912-K and stamped it in black ink and colored with markers. I cut the image with oval and scalloped oval dies and added some pearls and seam binding ribbon as a finishing touch.
I used the Repeat Impressions Nature Quartet #8506-U to create this card. I stamped the image in Rich Cocoa ink and then cut the panels apart to use them separately.
I would love for you to give this technique a try. If you do, please come back and share a link to your project in the comments, I would love to see them.
