Technique Tuesday

Today's technique is paper tole. Paper tole is creating an 3-D image by using 2-5 copies of your image by cutting out different parts.

Stamp background images including focal point image. Stamp extra focal point image on a scrap of cardstock and trim. For extra dimension, shape with fingers. Mount with glue dot. Add additional layers of images or partial images if desired.

This stamp doesn't have many layers but if you have more than 2, it is pretty neat looking. You can't really tell from the picture but on this card, the middle part of the flower was cut out separately and then mounted on top of the original image.

Stamp Set: Embrace Life, Holidays & Wishes
Cardstock: Coral Cameo, Sage Shadow, Whisper White
Ink: Coral Cameo, Sage Shadow, Black Stazon
Accessories: Blender Pens, Silver Brads, 1/16" Hole Punch, White Taffeta Ribbon

I'm excited about this new Stampin' Up! year. SU! is moving ahead in new things. Be on the lookout as online ordering becomes available and then the big news about the Big Shot. So much happening!!

Happy stamping!!
