StampinByHannah Creativity Combined Blog Hop | Thank You
I have something special for you today. Over the past few months I have been working super hard to improve my little corner of the internet, and today I, along with another member of the team, have organised a blog hop to say Thank You to the wonderful Sarah who has helped us all!
I am always after a new technique to try, and when I came across this one on YouTube a few weeks ago I knew it would be perfect for today’s blog post! There will be a video tutorial on this one shortly because I think it is awesome!
I have to say this photo doesn’t do this technique justice… as the leaves are embossed into the card. The technique is called Die Cut Letterpress and it is so much fun! The leaves are from the Eclectic Layers Thinlits dies. I die cut them twice out of Thick Whisper White Card stock and once from Vellum. Then layered them together using Tombow glue, the Vellum piece needs to be on the bottom for the inky bit to work.
Then, add ink to the Vellum (I dabbed an ink pad onto the leaves) and run through your Big Shot. The sandwich is important here…. I used the platform I use for embossing folders, then a clear plate, my silicone mat, card stock, Leaves, and the second clear plate. I also found that a couple of sheets of card stock as a shim helped get a good impression, but my Big Shot is on its last legs and the centre of the rollers doesn’t have a lot of pressure.
The Thank You sentiment is taken from the Daisy Delight Stamp set and is stamped in Berry Burst ink. The card was a little bright at this point and I really wanted to add some Black (I’m on a bit of a Black kick at the moment!). So the black strip is embossed using the Layered Leaves 3D embossing Folder, and the card is finished with a trio of Black Rhinestone jewels and some ink splatter.
