Technique Hop – “It’s Faux”

0 5 Comments

Welcome to the Faux hop!  Hahaha!  It’s the real dealio, but it’s all about the faux!  This month’s technique is all about the faux look.  Stitching, textures, and such.  I am positive that you will get some great ideas from this blog hop!  Today you may have come from Alyson’s blog, or you may have started here.  Either way, it is a circle hop, and you should get back to where you started!  If you get lost along the way, you can check out the list on Melissa’s blog!

Today I wanted to do something a little different than what you might expect to see with the Blossom paper packet.  I was inspired by this card that I found on pinterest.  I just had so much fun making this “messy” card!  And it’s so so so simple!

I used Green Apple, Nectarine, and pewter inks.  I used a few pieces from just one of the B&T papers.  I used a few different stamp sets to make this fun card, I’ll list them below for you.  For the faux stitching, I used a stamp and my paper piercer to add the holes that a sewing machine would have, had it been real stitching.  I think it gives that extra little dimension!  We’ll be making this card tonight for my FB Live at 6pm!  I hope you will join me!

I even did more than my usual on the inside of this card!  I love how the liner pops with all the background!  Make sure to come and watch the live!  (or the replay!)

 

Thanks so much for hopping along!  I know you will like what Haley has up for you next!  See you next time!

    Very fun! Adding the piercings really makes it look like real stitching.

    Oh, Michelle…I would’ve NEVER GUESSED that that wasn’t REAL STITCHING!!! This card is GORGEOUS and I really love how you finished off the inside too!
