Faux Leather Technique

stampin up rubber stamping technique embossing faux leatherFor my November Technique Club, we stamped using Embossing Powder different ways. This month we made three cards, using the Cracked Glass Technique with Stampin' Up! Glassy Glaze Embossing Powder, the Diamond Dust Technique and the Faux Diamond Dust Technique, and then created this adorable little wristlet using the Faux Leather Technique.

So much embossing going on, I was sure my Heat Gun was just going to give up, but no worries, he melted Embossing Powder all night long!

To create this wristlet, I use a Brayer to apply VersaMark ink from the VersaMark pad to cover three pieces of Chocolate Chip cardstock. Then cover the VersaMarked cardstock with Clear Embossing Powder and tap off the excess. Use a Bone Folder to draw the irregular leather grain lines into the surface of the cardstock, removing the Clear Embossing Powder as you 'draw.' Then use the Heat Gun to melt the Embossing Powder. Finally, run these three pieces of Faux Leather through the Big Shot with the Top Note die and assemble with an inner box to create this lovely.

Each month at Technique Club, my club members receive one or more instruction cards (FIVE this month!) with details of the techniques we are learning. They keep those cards in a notebook or in baseball card protectors, so they can refer to them again and again. If you are in my area of Colorado and are interested in joining Technique Club and receiving Hostess Benefits, please use the E-Mail Me button on the right toolbar to contact me. I would love to hear from you!
