Using Faux Claisonne Technique

Have you ever made a card using the Faux Claisonne technique?  That's what I did here with these two cards.  Faux Claisonne is a really simple technique that you can create using any paper with a pattern and some embossing powder.  You simply select the piece of paper with the pattern you like and then emboss over it with whatever stamp you like.  Tip: it's best to use a stamp with an open image like the flowers and butterflies in the cards below. Sometimes you'll see it done with a page from a magazine and some gold embossing powder.  With my first card,  I used gold embossing powder and a piece of Designer Series Paper along with the Secret Garden Stamp Set and coordinating Secret Garden Framelits to create and cut out the flowers.  With the second card, I used Papillon Potpourri stamp set along with both the Bitty Butterfly and the Elegant Butterfly punches and some silver embossing powder and Designer Series Paper to create the butterflies.  I really like this very simple technique!

Best Things in Life Aren't Things!

Best Things in Life Card
One of my favorite stamp sets from the Annual Catalog is the Feel Goods stamp set.  All five of the sentiments make you feel good!  When I was making this card, I wanted a little embellishment to tie onto the card.  I didn't have any Coastal Cabana ribbon, so I dyed some Whisper White Baker's Twine to match the card.  *Here's a little tip* You can create any color baker's twine to match your cards by pressing white baker's twine into any color ink pad with the sponge dauber while pulling the white twine across the ink pad while as many times as you like until the twine is the dyed to your liking.  It's like magic!

A Card for Your BFF - Bundle and Save 15%!

Here's another card using the Feel Goods stamp with just the perfect sentiment to use to send a card to your best friend.  I used the Faux Cloisonne technique to make the butterflies.  *Here's how to create Faux Cloisonne* You simply use paper that has a colorful pattern such as a piece of Designer Series Paper.  For this card I used a piece from the Gingham Garden.  Once you've selected your patterned paper, you use the VersaMark ink pad and some Embossing Powder, typically either gold or silver and then punch out your image.  It's that simple!
