Video Tutorial: Faux Letterpressing with Images, day two

Its day two of the faux letterpress with images technique. I hope you are inspired to give this a try. Its such a unique look, with unlimited possibilities!! Today there is a couple more projects, building off the original idea. Here is the video again. Please be sure and watch, so all of these images make sense! :)

hearts


The “letterpressed” images on this card are behind the hearts. I thought this would be a great look, layering the Nestabilities, without the traditional two layers of paper.

The Scalloped Hearts were “letterpressed” into the patterned paper. The raised edges were sanded, to make them stand out. Then I die cut Classic Hearts from a different patterned paper and layered. Love this. LOVE this!

thanks


A frame!

For this one, I cut my chipboard to the size of a standard card front. (4.25 x 5.5) Cut Wonky Rectangle from the center. Then “letterpressed” the entire piece into the card base.


I hope this as fun for you, as it is for me! thanks for stopping by!
