Faux Embossing with Hearts and Stripes
For the Ways to Use It challenge, we needed to customize our designer paper. I chose to use the faux dry embossing technique. And I used my new Hundred Hearts set from Verve. I love this company... which is one of the reasons why I cut my SU order in half last night.
Stamps: Hundred Hearts - Verve
Paper: so saffron, chocolate chip, regal rose, very vanilla, Making Memories DP
Accessories: eyelet, ribbon, CM heart maker, chocolate chip marker, scallop edge punch
Faux dry embossing technique: choose a shape that can be punched. It can be flowers, circles, anything you like. Simply line them up on the patterned paper and glue! Easy peasy... usually. This is the first time I've tried it with stripes. A couple of my hearts are a little off. Now you're going to look for them, aren't you? LOL! (To get a better view, right click on the photo.)
