Peekaboo Embossing - how to!
I have had quite a few inquiries on just how I had been doing my Peekaboo Embossing cards this past week - a fun new variation on an embossing technique I have been playing with for January where a stamped image peeks out behind an embossed one.
So here is the 6x6 technique card that my customers received at this months Technique Tuesday class ... fits perfectly inside a 6x6 album to create a 'inspiration book' for stampers as the attend additional classes each month.
I hope the instructions are viewable on the close up here ... the back of the card has the 'traditional variation' directions for braying the recessed side on an embossing folder to give the two toned embossed look which was the spring board for this variation with 'stamping' instead.
Sharing also with the Stampin' Up Only Challenge blog whose New Years Challenge is to try new techniques to push out of the comfort 'go to' techniques we tend to fall back on ... I myself love trying new stuff which is why Technique Tuesday is one of my favorite classes to host each month - there are just so many awesome ways to paper craft out there!
