In today's Tips and Technique Video I share how to add a different dimension to your Designer Series Paper with your dies, embossing folder and Stampin' Blends.
For my video I used the Heart & Home Designer Series Paper. This paper is on The Last Chance Product List, and is on sale for only $10.35. This paper works wonderful for this technique, because many of the sheets of designer series paper has a soft woodgrain on the back side.
I use the spotlight technique with this paper in three ways. Frist I used the Stylish Shapes Dies to cut out the center and then a second die in Basic Black to layer behind.. This gives a nice focus to the front of your card. You could just stamp a sentiment, but I chose to stamp the Blessing From Home Stamp Set. Next I used my Stampin' Blends to color in.
Finally I took the Designer Series Paper that I cut the square out of and ran through my Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine with the Hive 3D Folder. This really helps spotlight the main focus.
Now time to watch the video for other tips.
