My guest today is sweet Erin Thiem of Homemade Cards by Erin. I love Erin's clean and simple approach to cardmaking. Her cards are always fun and fresh with just the right amount of embellishments and texture to put a smile on your face. I love that she really maximizes the use of her dies, embossing folders and stamps in her creations to create her own patterned paper. Today she's sharing a faux letterpress technique using an impression/embossing plate. She's also hosting an awesome challenge with a cool prize for one lucky winner! :)
Let's look at Erin's creations using the faux letterpress technique!
Outside Inn, www.outsideinn.com, and when I'm not hiding in my messy craft room I'm usually at work either doing laundry or dealing with whatever crisis comes up. I have been card blogging for a year and a half and have been thrilled to discover a fabulous community of other like minded people who share the same passion of paper as I do. I can't wait to see what you come up with this technique.
1. Get out an impression plate or embossing folder.
2. Ink up the plate or embossing folder and sandwich as you would in your die cut system.
3. Sandwich as you would in your die cut system.
4. Let paper dry, wipe plate or folder clean with baby wipe (or rise with warm water and soap if need be).
4. Use faux letter press paper in some fabulous crafty project.
Isn't this a wonderful technique? Ready to play along?
A random participant will get to win this PTI in blooms Impression Plate courtesy of Erin!
