1st Tutorial for Gingersnaps....& StampMan Challenge

As guest DT as Gingersnaps Creations I committed to doing a tutorial...EEK!  Yes I was and am very nervous   Triple Embossing is an old favourite of mine and I think sometimes the old techniques can be lost among newer ones and exciting new products.  The cards pictured here are the finished items.  Please take a look - I would love to know what you think.




Following on from my tutorial I have made three ATCs for the The Stamp Man Challenge Blog, which is "Distress".  I used the triple embossing technique as above but I used normal cardstock and then when the UTEE was dry I "cracked" the image and then rubbed Distress Inks over the cracks and edges.  This has given the main images on the ATCs an aged and distressed appearance.  This is my first time for the Stamp Man challenge and I hope my ATCs fit the bill.

Suzanne these are just gorgeous... thank you also for the tutorial, I checked it out and forgot all about using a rubber stamp while UTEE is still wet..... Your right sometimes we forget about the old faithful techniques. Beautiful ATC's
