Bonus Video! Faux Dry Embossing with Triple Play Frame

Ready for some faux dry embossing? Turn all your bold

stamps into “virtual embossing folders” with tone on tone

 stamping and a white pigment ink pad! Today I have a CAS 

card with the flowers from my Triple Play Frame stamp set 

for a quick card with very minimal supplies that’s great in a 

pinch! TIP: Any colored cardstock will work for this technique,

 and you can substitute a Versamark pad for a colored pad to

 do the tone on tone stamping if you prefer.

Apologies on not being very eloquent today, I threw this all 

together in just a few minutes to keep up with our regular 

StampTV broadcast schedule (Please keep Gina in your

prayers as she gets back on track after some health and 

personal stuff!) Thanks for understanding. :)
