Tuesday Tip/Technique

Hello friends

It's Tuesday Tip/Technique.  As with most weeks this might be a new tip/technique
for you or a reminder of what you can do with your Spellbinders dies.

Today's project uses A2 Fancy Postage Stamps.
I've cut/embossed the edged rectangle and left the die cut in place in the die.
I applied a little distress ink around the edges first - Antique Linen.
 Still keeping the die cut in the die, stamp the complete area. I've used a script stamp.
 You can see it has stamped onto the outer edges of the die - no problem,
a quick wipe and it comes off easily.
 And this is how it looks when the die cut is removed from the die -
selective shading and stamping, you get the nice crisp edge.
 I chose to use it on a tag along with Jewel Flowers and Flourishes and Foliage.
The other die cuts are all from the A2 Fancy Postage Stamps set.
 A close up pic.
Have fun die cutting, inking and stamping! :)
Take care friends, I'm back tomorrow.

Morning Christine
Another great tip, I love how inking and stamping whilst in the die leaves a crisp clean outer edge. This is one of my favourite techniques. The finished tag is fab.
Enjoy your day

Great idea Christine, I have a script stamp, but I dont think it's anywhere big enough, I'll have to look again.

Pat S Witney said...

I've not seen this done before that I remember. Thanks for showing us this tip. It leaves a great border around the dies.

Really love your tag, very clever. I love a project that has "Paper" embblies, vs 3D ones. Great job!
I love anything Spellbinders anyways :)

Beautifully done!
