Flowering Blooms for GDP256 | #MCC21
Hello stampers! I am really excited to share this project with you. It features a FAUX DRY EMBOSS technique, that I have always loved but honestly don’t do enough of in my card crafts! It fits wonderfully into this week’s Mystery CASE theme of featuring framelits as well. This project was inspired by the Global Design Project Blog. Take a look at the CASE THE ARTIST project we were tempted to CASE!
Okay, so what is Faux Dry Embossing? Well first we need to understand what Dry Embossing is.
Dry Embossing is pressing or etching a pattern, shape, or design into cardstock. You can achieve this with the Stampin’ Up! Cut & Emboss Machine and embossing folders. Or if you are old school, you can press a stylist into a the negative image of your desired pattern. When I first started making cards with Stampin’ Up! products we actually sold a light table to assist with this type of project. I have to admit, when the original BIG SHOT machine was released years ago, it was heaven sent.
Now Faux Dry Embossing is layering die cut images onto a layer of cardstock to create a lifted look. In this sample above you can see she die cut the globe image several times, and adhered them in a pattern onto her cardstock panel. Pretty cool right!

So, here is my project. I opted to die-cut panels using the Ornate Layers Dies, to create the Faux Dry Embossed look for my background image. Keeping it to the color on color just like the artist I CASED. Then I stamped and trimmed out the images from the Flowering Blooms stamp set. Add a sentiment and some Wink of Stella to shimmer it up a bit and we are done.
