Debossing Class

Last Friday I held a Technique Class and the ladies had a wonderful time learning and creating. Of course there was a lot of laughter and good times to be had by us all. I must say, one of the most satsisfying aspects of stamping would have to be that everyone is so helpful to each other. So not only do I get the chance to Share what I Love, the other ladies are sharing as well. The Debossing Technique is such a simple yet stunning way to show off some of our wonderful embossing folders that we have available to us from

Stampin Up. Firstly we embossed the Very Vanilla Cardstock, and then using a very light hand brayered over it using Sahara Sand on the raised side. On the 2nd piece of cardstock that was embossed we reversed the techniqued and brayered the other side of the cardstock. We ended up with two totally diffferent looks. The card was then finished off using the Dasher single stamp and the greeting from Snow Swirled. It was surprising how different the cards looked when they were finished.

The other technique I showed the ladies was this. Take the remaining cardstock from around (in this case ovals) dies that had been cut in the Big Shot that would normally be thrown out, and place it over some Very Vanilla Cardstock keeping it in place using Dotto. We used Old Olive to sponge the foreground and Baja Breeze to spong the sky. The stamp set used was Lovley as a Tree and was stamped in Old Olive within the oval area. The sentiments, once again come from Teeny Tiny Wishes. What resulted was a very delicate card that with the change of a sentiment could be used in so many ways. Why is it that when we become papercrafters we never look at a scrap of paper, ribbon, brad etc etc the same way again? In our previous life it would have been binned, in this life it is recycled!
