Gingham Technique

I was going back through my pictures and realized I never posted pix of my last Technique class!  Somehow these cards just slipped through the cracks so I thought I'd post them now. 

The first technique we did was the "Faux Gingham" technique… Basically you apply ink to the striped embossing folder with a brayer and run it through the big shot with your paper inside and then turn it 90 degrees and do it again. This creates a cool textured gingham pattern! I thought it would go perfectly with the giant Cherry from the Mouthwatering stamp set:

Of course, when you stamp this cherry, you have to emboss it too using the scented cherry embossing powder!!

Here's a close up of the card:

stamps: Mouthwatering, retired sentiment
ink: real red, garden green, early espresso
paper: Whisper white, early espresso, crumb cake, garden green
Big shot: Perfect Pennats Bigz die (for scallop circle), Stripes embossing folder
other: red grosgrain ribbon (retired), dimensionals, 2 1/2" circle punch, brayer
