Another Spellbinders Impressabilities Tutorial


Today I wanted to share another way to use your Spellbinders Impressabilities. For this card I used the Impressabilities as a stencil.

This technique is very easy. You need an Impressabilities template, a piece of paper, an inkpad, and an ink applicator of any kind.

Place the Impressabilities anywhere on the paper. This card is 6x6, so the template would not reach all the surface with one placement. I moved the template all over the edge of the card, turning it at angles, just having fun. Make sure that you push gently, straight down. If you push too hard, or at an angle, the template will slip. You could try some removeable adhesive on the back of the template, I have found that to work quite nicely.
I am hoping that today my allergies stop beating me down. My meds aren't working and the congestion is miserable. Its hard to think when you are all stuffed with fluff. I hope that you are feeling wonderful today! thanks so much for stopping by!!!
