Every Thursday on Paper Crafter’s Library is Technique Thursday – This is where we create and feature projects for our Club 52 online class (our year-long technique club), which our Paper Crafter’s Library members also access as a free benefit of their membership. We’re now on week 30, and we’re learning a faux letterpress technique using die cut images. In the first tag Soph inks up a die cut image to use as her “stamp” and then runs the die cut image and her tag through the Big Shot to transfer the ink onto her tag. In the second tag Soph uses the die cut images as “masks” on her tag. She then sponges the surface of the tag. When the sponging is done and you remove the die cut images, you are left with a beautiful faux letterpress look.
If you’re interested in checking out what we’ve covered so far, you can look at our Club 52 page. If you’re a technique junkie and would like to learn new techniques (as many of them are ones we have created), or revisit old ones – you can still sign up from this page – you’ll be able to access all 30 weeks we’ve done so far, plus the remaining weeks, and your access to the classroom will last for 15 months.
