Good morning! Just learned this fun technique–Faux Letterpress! It involves stacked die cuts, watercolor paper and your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine!
Cut 3 of the dies (your choice) out of cardstock, then one from vellum. Glue them into a "stack", with the vellum die cut on the bottom. Create a background using watercolor paper–whatever you'd like to do is fine! I just added reinkers to mine! Next, apply white craft ink to the vellum (bottom of stack), and place on the watercolor paper. Now run through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss using the sandwich for embossing. This is what you'll get!
Here's another sample, this time I used Cajun Craze Classic ink on the vellum for a whole other look!
It's such a fun technique, but very messy!! haha!! It's very therapeutic to cut and glue the die cuts in a stack–I think I could do that all day!
Here are the supplies used on today's projects:
