Simply Saturday and a wonderful Clean and Simple interpretation of using the Stampbord here.
You might think: "I don't need Stampbord to make a UTEE triple embossed square".
Well, think about it (or try even) to make it with cardstock (even 2 or 3 layers of cardstock), it will never stay flat. Stampbord does stay flat... doesn't bulge AT ALL, even with 3 or 4 layers of UTEE. Another reason why I love Stampbord squares which I have used the way Gay did on several occasions. The result is simply stunning.
How about you having a go and letting us know how you get on? Show us what you have done even, we would love to see ;)
Anyway, over to Gay for her beautiful box and card.
My first step was to stamp the tissue paper with the cover a page Impression Obsession Cover--a-Card snowflake stamp. When that was covered completely I used multi medium all over the lid of the papier mache box and covered it with the stamped tissue. The box needed protecting so I painted it all over with multi medium to seal it. When that was dry I swiped over with the brown and black StazOn directly from the ink pads.
For the Stampord, I stamped the snowflake and inked with Distress inks in Pumice Stone and
Frayed Burlap, the neutral browns and a corner with black soot. When I was happy with the shaded effect I inked with versmark ink and I triple embossed with the UTEE. At the last minute I added the gold and silver embossing powders so they're on the very top layer giving the tile dimension.
I adhered them to the box.
The card I masked a square and stamped the snowflake very lightly with the snowflake stamp and again adhered the stampord tile. These would make a gift for my friend who has a very neutral brown decor in her house.
