Video tutorial: Faux Letterpress with Images

Playing around the other day, I came up with this crazy idea, and it worked! I wanted to “letterpress” solid images into cardstock. Once I saw that it could be done, I made a video and started making projects. In fact, I have two days worth of projects for you!! Be sure and watch the video, so all these project photos make sense! :)

thinking of you clouds

This is the first project that popped into my head…making clouds.

thinking of you clouds CU

Just like I created in the video. Still so pumped that it turned out! :)

thank you butterfly

This technique is like having your own embossing folders!

I die cut Spellbinders S3-038 Butterfly Reflections several times and lined them up. Imagine this with flowers, flourishes, circles, boy, I could go on for hours!

thank you butterfly CU

And not only your own embossing folders, but dies to match!!

Are you excited to try this? Are you inspired? What would you do with this technique? I still have so many ideas!!! Be sure and stop back tomorrow for more project ideas!!

The butterfly card is awesome. I just didn't believe this would work and I had to go try it with my butterfly die and I was amazed at how it turned out. This is a technique that I know I'll be using often. thanks so much and I won't be such a doubter in the future.
