Make it Monday: Impression Plate Tricks

Good afternoon!  I am popping in today with a card for PTI's weekly challenge Make it Monday.  This week's challenge was to use an impression plate in a fun way.


For this challenge I impressed the tops and bottoms of the card and left a strip in the center for my stamped paper strip.  I used my Scor-pal to score lines at the top/bottom of where the impression plate met the strip to create visual interest and to mask off the line left by the impression plate.


This shows a closeup of what I did.


Isn't that glittery house fun?  I got the idea from a sign I made for an upcoming women's event at church.  I used that same house die and the same papers, just opposite colors.  Our group is going to go see "Little House on the Prairie" at the Children's Theatre in town next month.  How fun!!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you enjoyed this card!  Be sure to join the Make it Monday challenges! They are a lot of fun!

  5. This tin type impression plate is really nice for the partial emboss technique. Using the damask designs for the patterned paper was also a great choice Jen. Wrinkled ribbon and the glittery house was just frosting on the cake, in my opinion. Loved it.

  8. Love this card, Jen. The impressed pattern is great, but I really love the way you inked and stamped the damask for your printed panel. And the sparkly house, rounded corners, little damask pattern on the sentiment label... it's all great! I haven't visited for awhile so I had to scroll down and see what you've been creating. Thanks for providing me with so much inspiration! Hope your daughter had a great 3rd birthday!
