How are you liking the Holiday Catalogue?

Can you believe we are half way through it already??

I really love all the stamps and products in it and the variety. I know not everyone celebrates Halloween or Thanksgiving here in Australia but its still nice to have the option of purchasing the stamps and accessories if we want to!

Last Saturday I had the pleasure of demonstrating in the Product Playground at the Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt event in Sydney. I was asked to make samples using particular products and stamps and one set was the Watercolor Winter set in the Holiday Catalogue. Now its not a set I would have purchased normally but have been loving using it over the last few weeks!

Here’s one of my samples …

It’s a case of a card I found on the lovely Dawn Olchefske’s blog – I did actually have a couple of ladies there on Saturday ask me just how I did the background of this card and I was happy they noticed it was a little bit different and shared Dawn’s technique with them.

I’ve actually used the Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions Embossing Folder as a ‘stamp’ and here’s how it’s done …

  1. Ink up your brayer with Versamark (make it nice and inky)
  2. Brayer the Versamark all over one side of the Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (I used the raised pattern side) and give it a really good covering.
  3. place your piece of cardstock on the non brayered side and close the folder then brayer as hard as you can and all over to make sure you dont miss any part of the folder. You should brayer the ‘backside’ of the side of the folder you put the Versamark on the inside. (oh i hope that makes sense)
  4. Open your folder and the pattern will reveal itself as the Versamark ink soaks into the Cardstock.
  5. Go wash your folder cos its now all sticky from the Versamark ink!

I love this technique and love the subtle pattern that comes out – just another way to use those folders and that is why they are now this month’s Latte Essentials Product of the Month for November!  I know I’m starting this one late so this Latte Essentials will go until the 15th December!  So over the next 4 weeks I’ll be showing you different ways to use your Textured Impressions Embossing Folders!
