Stamping Techniques Series

Hello! So, today see’s the return of my Techniques Series following the completion of my Christmas Countdown a couple of weeks ago! I LOVE doing these techniques videos, they are often as much learning for me as they are for you… particularly this one, which I have now filmed twice! I might share the other card with you at some point, but it was very similar to THIS one I made for a blog hop a couple of months ago.

Techniques Video Tutorial how to do die cut letterpress with dies from Stampin' Up!

This fun card uses the Swirly Scribbles dies and the Daisy Delight Stamp set from the Annual Stampin’ Up! catalogue. The Die Cut Letterpress technique works best with bright, fun colours and I have used Lemon Lime Twist and Calypso Coral here today.

Die Cut Letterpress Tips and Tricks:

  • Practice! This technique is one of those that might take a couple of attempts to get right… play around with the number of layers of card stock you need to get your desired embossing depth
  • Remember that when you stack your die cuts you need to ensure you have a layer of Vellum on the bottom as this will help transfer your ink later on
  • Use fun dies to create your letterpress…. my favourites for this technique are the Swirly Scribbles, Eclectic Layers, and  Lovely Words

How to make a cool Thank You card using Swirly Scribbles and Daisy Delight from Stampin' Up!

Can you believe that the layer of Vellum is held on with Fast Fuse! Isn’t it cool that you cant see it!

Before I go, do check out the End of Year Sale, particularly for those Black Rhinestones as they are retiring on the 2nd January and I don’t want you to miss them!
