It is Tuesday again and so I’m sharing a fabulous technique with you!!! This week it is the Puzzle Piece Resist Technique!
This amazing technique comes from my fellow stamper – Linda Yearsley! I love when we all get together and swap ideas! Here is how to create this look:
Stamp background image on Whisper White Cardstock with Versamark. Pour clear, white, or black embossing powder over the image and tap off access powder. Heat emboss the powder until it is completely melted. Place your Big Shot Framelits (what ever images you want) on your embossed background and run it through the Big Shot. Carefully remove your die cut shapes and with the sponge daubers add desired ink color to each puzzle piece. Take a paper towel and go over the inked areas to remove any excess ink. This makes your embossing more pronounced. Adhere the largest background puzzle piece to your card base and then continue putting the puzzle piece together and adhering them on the card.
My Samples: Sample 1 – I used the Dress Up Framelits and Ovals Framelits for my puzzle pieces, Black Embossing Powder and Real Red Ink for the dress and outline! Sample 2 – I used the Ovals Framelits, Labels Collection Framelits, and Secret Garden Framelits for my puzzle pieces, Clear Embossing Powder and Pumpkin Pie, Island Indigo, Melon Mambo & Daffodil Delight Inks and a pearl in the center!!! Sample 3 – I used the Labels Collection Framelits for my puzzle pieces, Clear Embossing Powder, and Gumball Green, Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, and Daffodil Delight Inks. For this card, I put Stampin’ Dimensionals on every other label frame to give dimension! These are my #1 favorite product and you will notice I use them A LOT!
I hope you enjoyed this Technique and try it out yourself!!! Until next Tuesday…..
