Good Day Peeps! I had a busy but productive weekend, so I will get right to it.
I ate at Chick fil a……Twice
Saw Batman The Dark Night Rises..and yes everytime someone got out of their seat my eye was on them like Saruman from Lord of the Rings!
Stopped by Joann Fabric to pick up some muslin to line my skirt and to get my sale items for 65% off…who can pass up EK success punches at $10.00 ….not me.
and……..drum roll I made 8 cards…wooh!
Lets talk about Masks, here are 4 that I have from Studio Calico.
For the life of me I couldn’t figure out how to use them.
This weekend I was determined to learn darnit! Here we go…..
First Techinque =Embossing
Disclaminer: I have a Sizzix Bigshot ONLY, I do not know the techniques for the other cutters.
Tools Used for this project
2 Standard Cutting Plates
A Shim* I used a USPS priority flat rate envelope. You can also use a really Keira Knightly like thin mouse pad :). When using a manual die cutter you need to stack your tools to get a good impression, like a sandwich.
Here is the Ampersand Sign without a good sandwich. The sandwich you pick up and all the insides fall on you lap ….rolling my eyes…..I just hate that!
Here is the sandwich needed for this project:
Bottom Slice of Bread=Multi purpose Platform
Lettuce=(1) Standard Cutting Plate
Cheese=Cardstock I used PaperTrey Ink Cardstock to get the best impression
Top Slice of Bread=(1) remaining standard cutting plate
Pass it through your Sizzix Big Shot and you get a really nice impression.
Second Technique Ink Sprays
Spray Ink Fails. Ok if this was suppose to be in Braille it may have worked.
Card Supplies- Used (Studio Calico Monthly Kits)
American Craft Thickers
