Good morning everyone!
Welcome back to another Technique Tuesday! I just returned from a weekend road trip to Maryland for a family wedding so of course I thought it appropriate to showcase the No Place Like Home stamp set today! The technique is a simple one but super versatile – I will be showing you how to ink your embossing folders for a little extra color and added dimension to dry embossing!
Here’s the super cute suticase I made!
To create the embossed background for the suitcase itself- follow these simple steps below- this can be done with any embossing folder and any non-permanent ink.
I love how this technique gives extra depth to the dry embossing- I used Vintage Photo Distress ink here to give the suitcase the “grungy” vintage look as well.
I finished off the project by stamping a few of the sentiments from the No Place Like Home stamps set onto die-cut mini postage stamps- to give the look of old stickers on an old valise!
I also added the ribbon for a strap and made a “leather” handle from Kraft Glassine paper.
Hope you enjoyed taking this journey with me today and hope you give this technique a whirl!
