Facebook Live - December 11, 2018 - Faux Tile

Here is the latest Facebook Live that was done last night, December 11, 2018.  The Blast from the Past was going all the way back to May, 2012.  It has been a fun journey and I am always amazed at how far I have come in eight years both as a stamper and paper craft creator.or

Here is what the tag said:  Create an unique background that will add dimension to any card. Last night I used the Simply Scoring Tool (122334) which is sold by Stampin' Up!  You can also use a Ruler to create a grid on your cardstock. I was looking for an easy way so I used the Simply Scoring Tool.

Here is the completed card, I just love how it turned out!




Create diagonal lines or up and down lines, being sure to evenly space your lines to create a grid. Please sit back and enjoy my Facebook Live Video, remember to share it.  I also will be uploading it to You Tube and you can find that by just doing a search for my name, Cindy Ehlers.



Here are the ingredients for the card:

Stamps:  Beautiful Promenade
Ink:  Berry Burst, Old Olive, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake
Paper:  Berry Burst Base, Whisper White Layer
Accessories:  Epoxy Droplets, Dimensionals

December Technique - Retiform

The Retiform Stamping Technique has been around a while and I can't believe that I had never tried it! By using Sticky Notes or pieces of Cardstock, we masked off sections of a blank piece of cardstock. Then used a sponge or sponge dauber to sponge first a lighter shade of ink and then a darker shade around the edges. Stamp the images that you would like in the squares. Keep masking, sponging and stamping until you have covered the card piece.

It might sound complicated, but it is not!  Let me show you what I mean!!

Card #1 - Frosty
Stamp Sets:  First Frost
Ink:  Gray Granite, Blackberry Bliss, Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana
Paper:  Coastal Cabana Base, Frost Floral Layer, Whisper White
Accessories:  Frosted Bouquet Framelits, Dimensionals, Blackberry Bliss Dark Blend, Rhinestones
HINT:  You can have any color Rhinestone that you would like by coloring them first with the Stampin' Up! Blends.

Card #2 - Love Never Melts
Stamp Sets:  Spirited Snowmen (Retires on January 2nd)
Ink:  Blueberry Bushel, Balmy Blue
Paper:  Balmy Blue Base, Blueberry Bushel Layer, Whisper White
Accessories:  Epoxy Droplets, Light Night of Navy Blends, Silver Ribbon
HINT:  I colored the Epoxy Droplets with the Light Night of Navy Blend, it turned out great!!

Card #3 - Fancy Fold - Corner Fold

Stamp Sets:  Wishing You Well
Ink:  Night of Navy, Pear Pizzazz
Paper:  Soft Seafoam Base, First Frost Designer Series Paper (3) 3 3/4 x 3 3/4, Whisper White & Night of Navy
