Faux Tile Technique

Hope you all are having a great weekend!  I’m a little sad after saying good-bye to one of my granddaughters today.  She had been down here from Maine visiting me all last week and had to fly back this morning to go back to school.  Don’t ask me why the schools in Maine have their spring break in February because I still can’t figure it out, but I was glad she got to come and visit me!

Here is a card from one of last week’s classes where I’ve used the Faux Tile Technique.  This technique is a lot of fun and easy to do, too.  First, I scored the Whisper White Card Stock (100730) every one-half inch vertically and diagonally with my Simply Scored Scoring Tool (122334).  Then I used the stem and leaves image from the Fabulous Florets Stamp Set  (wood-123025; clear-123027) and stamped it in Lucky Limeade Ink (122935) twice on the Whisper White panel.  Next, I stamped the solid flower image from the same set in Poppy Parade Ink (119782).  Just add a sentiment on a label, a button, some ribbon, back it with Poppy Parade Card Stock (119793) and adhere it to an Early Espresso Card (119686).  Use the Color Spritzer (107066) to add a little more color to the front of the card and wha-laa…You’re finished in a matter of minutes!

To purchase any of the items used to make this card, just click on the “Order Stampin’ Up Online” button in the right-hand column.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!  Terry

  1. Terry, I saw your card on Sudsol and loved it so much that I just had to CASE it and see if I could recreate it in MDS. Thank you for the great inspiration. You can see my card HERE
