Happy New Year, everyone!!
A friend sent me the link to this YouTube tutorial today, and I’m so glad she did. I rushed over and watched it, and was so excited by this technique that I sat right down and made a card using it!
Here’s what I did:
And here it is made into a card:
(I made the mistake of not using my embossing buddy before I started embossing, but I like the effect I got anyway!)
For this card I used a background stamp from Kaszazz. The sentiment is from Inspired by Stamping, and is from the “Just Because” stamp set.
And finally, here is the video that got me so excited. Enjoy!
Thanks for looking, and as always, if you want to comment, and the comment box isn’t showing, click the title of this post and it will magically appear!

Okay, I have SO got to try this, Cheryl. Yours turned out beautifully. Happy New Year.

Thanks Teresa. I really love the background stamp used in the video, but I used the only large background stamp I have!
It wasn’t a very time consuming process, and that’s definitely a bonus!
Beautiful technique, lovely card
Wow, this is stunning, and elegant! I am definitely trying this out! I am going to go and check out my big background stamps, this is just a gorgeous technique! Who knew that a technique which includes rubbing “black” all over a background could look this lovely? LOL I mean, seriously? It looks so easy, also!
LOVE your card, Cheryl! Again, thanks for sharing all these wonderful ideas.
Happy New Year!!!
I have to share this: IF I had a nickel for all the times I “forgot” to use MY embossing buddy, I would be weathy! Ha!
I have that sitting right in front of my area, yet, I forget all the time. Sheesh. It is so dumb of me, but I am happy to hear that others do it also. LOL
I guess it’s because we started out stamping before the “embossing buddies”, and I used dryer papers, and forgot those also. LOL
The first time I embossed anything…I forgot to apply the embossing powder, and I kept heating up the VersaMark and wondering what was going on??? Sheesh, I haven’t thought of that in awhile. Talk about a “duh moment”!!! LOL
Beautiful Cheryl! Thanks so much for sharing. Will have to try it.
Thanks so much, Joyce!
Anna, it was so easy, but a bit messy.
I really hope you do try it out – I’m sure it’s something I’ll be doing over and over. It is just so pretty. (And it will have people thinking “how did she do that??”)
Thanks Lindsay. Yes, do give it a try. I’m so glad I did!
What a great technique Cheryl!! Absolutely stunning.
It really is great, isn’t it, Penny? Sadly, I can’t take credit for it. (LOL!)
