Today I am talking about how to add texture to your handmade cards!
It's all about texture when stamping! The more you can add texture to your handmade cards, the bigger "wow" factor it will have. And Stampin' Up! hit a home run with some of the "texture" items in the Holiday Catalog! The biggest new item being the TIN TILE embossing folder. WOW WOW WOW. If you want texture, add this to your next order! And there is a second awesome new embossing folder called CORRUGATED that is another must have for us texture lovers!
Besides talking about how to add texture to your handmade cards, I also wanted to share some projects with a new stamp that I have so enjoyed creating with. It's called Country Home and you will find it on page 43 of the 2018 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.
Today's video will give you a closer look at these 3 cards, and will also share some tips for distressing the Tin Tile embossed cardstock--it's a lot of fun and I can't wait to create some projects with the distressing!
All 3 of my cards today were colored using an Aqua Painter and my ink pads. I love the watercolor look and it's quick & easy! But make sure, if you are coloring with water, that you stamp your image in either Stazon or the old Archival Black that we used to carry. You need an ink that will not smear when it gets wet.
Besides the new stamp called Country Home, I also used 2 other new products: Chicken Wire Elements and the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
