Technique Tuesday Spotlight :)

So, this is a new thing I'm trying out. Each Tuesday my goal is to post a way cool technique that I have recently learned or have always loved. Today's technique spotlight is...FAUX PRESSED FLOWERS. This was last weeks technique on Splitcoast Stampers, but hopefully this is new to some of you. :) Here are the samples (I LOVE this technique, so there are quite a few):

Card 5 (Last one, I promise! Oh, and my 2nd favorite...):

And here's how to do this technique! It's super simple.


Paper flowers

Glue stick


Embossing folders
Sizzix Purse (or other die cut machine to run the folder through)

1. Using the glue stick SPARINGLY, glue the paper flowers in place on your cardstock.
2. Place the cardstock into the embossing folder and run it through the Sizzix Purse.
3. Add the element to a project! :)

See! Super simple! I'll be showcasing this technique at my next open house on Feb. 19th. It goes from 10am-2pm at my house. Hope to see you all there! :) Happy crafting!!!

I like the one with the orange ribbon best. What a cool technique! Not that I have the stuff to do it, but it looks so fun!
