Finally a new creation
I had a little play tonight with a couple of things I have been wanting to try. I have seen a couple of fish made using the Build a Blossom stamp set and thought they were very cute. I have also wanted to play with a technique to use the Framelits Labels Collection dies to emboss instead of cutting.
I used Night of Navy ink to stamp the fish onto Very Vanilla card and then cut it out using the second smallest Framelits Labels Collection die. Then to emboss, I laid the Standard Premium Crease Pad on to Tab 2. Next I put the image panel, image up. I used the smallest label and centred it inside the image panel with the cutting edge up. Lastly I added a standard cutting plate and ran it through the Big Shot to get this lovely embossed panel around the fish. I cut Night of Navy card using the third smallest label and attached the image panel. I cut a strip of Night of Navy designer paper from the Regals Collection Designer Series Paper Stacks and wrapped one long edge using Night of Navy 1/4″ grosgrain ribbon. I attached the designer series paper to Very Vanilla card which I embossed using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing folder and then to scored and folded Night of Navy card. Lastly I added a medium Basic Rhinestone to the fish for an eye.
Well what do you think? Isn’t this fish really cute? I know the card is quite simple but I really wanted to share these two ideas with you. I am sure to be using the embossing technique a lot more in the future. Especially now I know it is so simple.
Bye for now, Kris.
