Today’s card is an example of the Backgrounds #1 Texturz Plates.
Don’t you love the Animal Crackers stamp set? I wish it said “I quack myself up”…..just kidding …I use both phrases a lot (it’s a southern thing…right?).
I posted a video on my Stampin’ Academy last night. If you have any questions, please let me know.
A few questions have already been ask and I thought I would share them with you.
Q. Why did you use the rubbing alcohol?
A. If you spray the alcohol on your colored cardstock, it makes the embossed image more defined…or you could say “pop”. Honestly, the plates work great, just the way they come. You’ll see when you get them 🙂
Q. Do I need to buy rubbing alcohol?
A. No, you do not need it! But there is a lot of talk about it & I like to get it out there.
Q. One extra layer of cardstock, gets the same effect?
Q. I get 6 templates for one price?
A. Yes, isn’t that incredible? Backgrounds #1 is just $11.95 for 6 patterns and the Plates Kit #4 is just $9.95 for 6 patterns.
I hope this help you all!!
Have a great day!
