Hi! Today’s post is the second card we made at the first HSS hostess club. Several Christmas’ back, one of the cards in the stamp-a-stack of cards we made was using a technique called Faux Tile. The card was scored first and then stamped. Here is the result.

But the card, made for hostess club used a technique called Tile Card. Here it is and the recipe follows.

DIRECTIONS:
1. Stamp the large and small flowers in Calypso Coral (light color for solid stamps). Stamp insides of     flowers with Watermelon Wonder.
2. Stamp solid leaves in Wild Wasabi and the inside with Garden Green.
3. Now, VERY GENTLY peel the “lattice” up on one side and carefully remove making sure the           labels stay in place.
4. Use paper piercer and pad to make hole for brad. Adhere button with glue dot.
5. Use 5 dimensionals: 1 in the middle, and 1 on each corner and adhere label sheet to Garden Green       CS.
6. Tie ribbon around one end making a knot. Adhere CS to WatermelonWonder CS. Stamp sentiment     inside card.
TECHNIQUES:
1.Tile card. This is a fun technique that has a similar look to another technique, called Faux Tile, where the card is scored and then stamped.
2. 2 step stamping. This was done on the leaves and flowers to add dimension and interest to the end product. The solid stamp was stamped in the lighter color followed by the darker color.
TIPS: 

Sometimes you will find that the top layer needs a dimensional in the middle to keep it from sinking.
Darker color.

2 step stampin’. I put a sticky note over a place
where I didn’t want inked. This is called masking.

Gently pulling up grid.

 Hope you will take time to try these fun techniques! Enjoy!

Happy stampin’,
