Tuesday Tip with Debbie Standard

Happy Tuesday!

Make sure you check out the wonderful tip from Designer Lydia Jackson that was on the blog yesterday on how to use up those Core scraps for a really cute card.

Today we have Design Team Member Debbie Standard sharing with us her Tuesday Tip usint Tim Holtz Collection.

First off I scored a frame around where I was going to focus my page – actually double scored it – two sets of lines.  As you score use your Sand it Gadget to sand over the scoring ridge while it’s still on the score ridge – much easier and cleaner than trying to sand it after you are done scoring.  Then I sanded down outside my scoring to really accent a frame look.  To create the red portion of the page I used a circle cutter I think was made by CK (OLD tool of mine) and sanded over it again and again moving it around behind my page – I really like how it came out.  We call this technique outlining. Then I used a strip of The Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions line with the stars.  I used some of the Tim Holtz Kraft and embossing it and cut out sections, also just tore a few pieces.  Added some of the Jenni Bowlin black/kraft piece and cut out circles of it. Oh and then I sanded and cut out my title from the letters on a sheet from the Jenni Bowlin line- ran then through the Xyron machine and put them on some black cardstock which I cut around the letters so when I put them on my page they popped a little more.

  1. I am going to give this technique a try. It looks just like a real 3D frame! I would have thought that’s what it was if you had not told us different. Very nice!
