If You Have Two Loaves/ I Write You Letters

Robyn here with two quick cards from stash with two of my favorite Quietfire Design quotes.
Both cards use the faux tile technique with Dreamweaver Stencils.
It's easier than it looks. 
This quote is thermal embossed in Versafine Imperial purple and I cut the label with my new digital cutter!!!!!
(more on that on my blog)


Run the grid stencil through your die cut or embossing machine, then tape it in place , tape another stencil on top and color.
Let it dry well, then with the grid stencil in place sponge on embossing ink , take off the stencil and clear emboss.
That's it in a nutshell.
I thermal embossed this quote on tracing paper so you could see the background.
The stencil is a bit detailed for this technique, and I was still fairly pleased with the result.

I constantly find new ways to use my Quietfire Design stamps- no dust on their rubber!
New stamps coming soon- please come back and visit us here often!

Comments and questions always welcome.

  3. These are gorgeous cards Robyn. Although I must say, I have used small white stickers to achieve a similar look to card #1. The stencil would be handier :)

    1. I embossed the grid design first, so it gives a lot of dimension that strips wouldn't.
      If I had a thicken embossing powder that would give even more depth.
