Technique Focus

Do you love citrus as much as we do? We hope so . . . because today we’re thrilled to feature our must-have, tart, and luscious Sweet Citrus Bundle. This versatile bundle includes a stamp set, a hybrid embossing folder, and dies—all of which give you and your customers lots of options for creating dimensional projects that will help you tell loved ones that they’re simply the zest!

To make this month’s technique card, fill a Stampin’ Spritzer with water to dampen the Basic White Cardstock before embossing. (This will soften the paper and allow it to absorb the ink better.)

Before embossing, add Crushed Curry ink directly to the Sweet Citrus Hybrid Embossing Folder, then run it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. Let the embossed Basic White Cardstock piece dry before adhering it to the 3-1/2″ x 5″ (8.9 x 12.7 cm) Soft Sea Foam Cardstock.

Want a few more tips? Use the Light Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blend on your Baker’s Twine to give it a deep, rich color. Once the twine is dry, tie it into a bow and layer it behind the Garden Green Cardstock sentiment tag, heat embossed with white embossing powder and cut using Stitched Rectangles Dies.

So much fun! Why not try the spritzing technique?
