I just love Jennifer McGuire's Faux Dimension with Stamps & Stencils Technique! I did this for a birthday card in June but this time I taught it in a technique class at The Craft Shack. Each month TCS offers classes using different techniques which includes making a 6X6 technique card with written instructions & a sample plus a finished project. I won't give you detailed instructions here only what I used but you can click on the link above to watch Jennifer's video.
First I stamped the SU Whisper White card front with a sentiment from WPlus9 Sending, Hoping, Wishing (it has matching dies too!) in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink & VersaMark using a Mini Misti. The Misti is perfect for this technique. No need to move the stamps, just the card stock. Then I lightly applied Stormy Sky Distress Ink. This photo doesn't do the color justice...it's much more vibrant. I used Tim Holtz's Flourish Stencil with more Stormy Sky Ink for tone on tone & topped it off with ColorBox Frost White Pigment Ink. The Flourish Stencil is really neat because it's repeats so even though it isn't wide enough to cover a card front you can move it to line it up! I added small hearts from the SU 3 Heart Punch. The card base is SU Pacific Point cardstock. The middle layer is SU Whisper White cut using 2 dies from Spellbinders Pierced Rectangles which is a set of 6. The outer die will cut 5 1/4 X 4 & the inner die makes a pierced border. Oh & I even ironed the embossing off!!
This really is not as hard as it looks (or sounds!). I would recommend giving it a try & maybe use 2 ink colors.
