2/15 Using Ink with Texturz Plates and a Stampin' Up! Valentine!


Look at this beautiful Valentine I received in the mail from my upline Shanna McLaughlin! It's so elegant. It uses the Crumb Cake Seam Binding Ribbon and those delightful Mini Vintage Tags. She punched hearts from the awesome Real Red Glimmer paper using the Heart to Heart punch and adhered them with Dimensionals for some extra pop. The text paper is from the First Edition paper pack and the designer paper is from the package called Love Letter. I think the sentiment is part of a stamp in the Your a Gem set in our Occasions Mini. I could be wrong on that . . . but it looks like it might be. Thank you, Shanna!! I love it!!

I made another video to share with you. This one I'd promised last week. It's going to make using your Texturz Plates so much more fun. Just use them with ink and all those wonderful designs will show up just beautifully. My favorite way is tone on tone . . . so if I am using Soft Suede paper, I will use Soft Suede ink on my Texturz Plates. In the video, I used Soft Suede paper, but for even better visibility, I used Early Espresso ink. I hope you enjoy it! Click HERE to view the original post showcasing this technique.

What a beautiful card. I'd love to receive one like that! The red glimmer paper is so cool. Hope you had a wonderful day yesterday.

Great idea to use paper towel in your "sandwich," Kay! I'll have to remember that next time I ink up my Texturz plate. Thanks for the tutorial!

Oh I love this! A friend of my son is having a woodland wedding in a few months, so I realized last night I've got to get this texturz plate ordered, so this is perfect timing!
