de-boss: verb ( used with object )

to indent (a figure or design) into a surface 

It's been a long time since I have done rolled edges on my paper and I have no idea why 'cause I love the distressed look of it, especially for this guy camping birthday card!
papers are misc.
Sakura gel pens
pop dot
CARDZTV birthday stamp

Paper Crafts April 2012 Gallery Challenge - Silhouettes

Tried a new technique for me being that I am not a "true" stamper. This was my first time using a mask to stamp. I cut an oval die from the Cricut and laid it over my image and then placed 3 different stamps onto my acrylic block to repeat the birthday sayings.

This card was me just playing around with an extra image I had cut from my Cricut. I wanted to try an embossing technique where you rub your ink onto your embossing plate, run it through the machine and it inks the de-bossed part of the paper, would have turned out better if at the last second I hadn't sprayed it with my misting ink, lol I will try this again though, but with just an ink pad! Here is the link for the tutorial.

I have to wait for 2 months after a project has been published before I can share it with you. It's also funny when you think I actually made the tag back in June 2011!! Sometimes I can almost forget what the project looked liked until I get the actual magazine! I love looking through them and seeing what everyone else submitted too!

The rolled edges on your card look amazing and give the card some dimension - love it. You made me laugh when you said that you spritzed the embossing folder but it really has turned out well. Tammy's tutorial is very good, I really want that dogrose stamp/die cut that she used. Tim Holtz does the technique too but his looks more grungy. Well done on getting published! Crafty hugs, Anne
