Welcome to today’s Super Saturday Tutorial: Faux Cheesecloth – Two Ways!! Today’s tutorial was inspired by a tape style lint roller! LOL… inspiration can be anywhere, and today’s tutorial is no exception.
While working in my stamping studio on Friday, a number of future tutorials presented themselves. The good news is that I have enough tutorials to carry us through for the next couple weeks.. the bad news is that today I’m sharing just one, LOL!!
This is what my lint roller looked like yesterday…. and inspiration for today’s Super Saturday Tutorial too!
Today’s Tips for Paper Crafters…
- When you get glitter and/or embossing powder or paper particles on your stamps, it is easily removed using a common tape style lint roller.
- The lint roller actually leaves the stamp a little sticky or tacky too… a bonus which helps the ink stick to the stamp in a similar fashion to the classic Versa Mark style water mark ink!
- You don’t have to clean your stamp before rolling it… LOL, it will also remove much (but not all) of the excess ink too!
- Use a lint roller to remove debris and particles from your Cricut machine cutting mat to extend it’s life!
Super Saturday Tutorial: Faux Cheesecloth Two Ways!!
Supplies You’ll Need:
Ink: Versa Mark, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake
Papers: Very Vanilla, Whisper White, Vellum Card Stock, Crumb Cake
Terrific Tools: Paper Snips, Heat Tool, Stamp-Ma-Jig
Awesome Accessories: Stampin’ Sponge (wedge), Whisper White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, Hologram Highlights, Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder
Step By Step.. Faux Cheesecloth Basic Tutorial
- Ink the woodgrain stamp with soft suede ink, and stamp onto a piece of very vanilla card stock.
- Re-Ink the stamp using soft suede ink, turn 90 degrees and stamp again.
- Use a stamp-ma-jig positioning tool to align and stamp the rest of the card stock OR… just cut it off, LOL!
- Sponge using a stampin’ sponge wedge and crumb cake classic ink.
- Distress the edges using the blade of your paper snips or Craft and rubber scissors.
- Your distressed edge will look something like this…
- Sponge along the edge using the stampin’ sponge wedge and crumb cake ink.
- Your finished piece will look like faux cheesecloth or burlap… similar but not quite as intriguing as the faux fish net technique though!
OK… so I promised you two versions of the faux cheese cloth… and here’s the second one!
- This time… instead of being so precise and stamping both vertically and horizontally, get a little crazy!! Ink the woodgrain stamp using Versa Mark Ink and stamp onto Bashful Blue Card Stock… every which way! Then cover with Whisper White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, give it a flick of the finger and heat emboss!
- Isn’t it cool? LOL… now use your favorite Sea Shell stamp set… By The Sea Shore from the new Stampin’ Up! catalog is a great example, and build a card! Ink the images using Versa Mark ink onto crumb cake card stock. Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set using a heat tool!
- After fussy cutting out some of the images, ink the entire image again using versa mark and cover with dazzling diamonds or iridescent ice glitter! (What were they thinking when they retired Iridescent Ice???)
- I decided the card was a little too plain… so inked the reverse side of one corner using versa mark ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. Once it was a bit cool, it was inked again with versa mark and then covered with hologram highlights (you could also use dazzling diamonds) and heat embossed. After turning the corner towards the cheesecloth embossed surface, it was attached using a stampin’ dimensional aka pop dot.
- A sentiment from “lovely thoughts” stamp set was embossed using versa mark, white embossing powder and heat tool onto vellum card stock and attached to the card base using basic rhinestone jewels. You got to have a little sparkle and bling when you’re playing in the sunshine and water!!
Here’s an angled or profile view of the sea shell card so you can see the depth and proportions…
Last night I made the most phenomenal Chicken Taco Soup!! LOL.. it started out as a puffy chicken taco recipe from Saveur on the web… and evolved into soup! I was really hungry for San Antonio style Puffy Chicken Tacos but when DH came home he wasn’t too excited by the prospect…. and a new recipe was born!! Yum!! If you’d like the recipe, please leave a comment and I’ll post the recipe later next week!
I hope you enjoyed today’s Super Saturday Tutorial… I’m really excited about next week’s technique tutorial, but that’s got to wait a few days I look forward to reading your comments and hope you’ll continue to follow along with my stamping studio adventures!
