Default TLC728 ~ EOINA Faux Pressed Flowers ~ {02/04/2019}

Welcome to February! Let's encourage Spring to come along soon and put some flowers into the gallery today.

I thought today we would revisit Faux Pressed Flowers from TLC371 - but you can also just do embedded embossing with other images if you would prefer not to use flowers. I've been thinking for a while of revisiting this, and used the regular embedded embossing for a recent Teapot Tuesday card, shown below.
Just remember that if you use thicker paper for your flowers or other elements, you won't get as good a result when you emboss because it will be too thick in the embossing folder. Remember too that for best results, you need an embossing folder with a fairly detailed all-over pattern. In her tutorial Anne (Itsapassion) suggests something with a tight grid, and uses the SU square lattice. For my flower example here I used a very tiny brocade pattern ef.

Anne's tutorial is in our Resources section - you can find it (and a video)- HERE.

Here's a link to our TLC728: Faux Pressed Flowers and Embedded Embossing gallery


Remember to upload your own creation today to the technique gallery if you've used the flower option: choose Technique Spotlight from the first dropdown menu and Faux Pressed Flowers from the second set of options.


Here's my recent card using the simple embedded embossing technique - which is as simple as adding some die-cut or punched shapes to a background panel and then embossing the whole piece as above. You can see that I stuck the foreground paper on to some blue card, then added my rainbow, sun, clouds and flowers before embossing.




Here's my card using the Faux Pressed Flowers technique. Rather than using Primas, I stamped and fussy-cut my flowers but I did stamp the foliage over the background and coloured it, before sticking the flowers down and embossing.

TLC728 : Embrace Your Birthday
Remember to use the keyword TLC728 when you are uploading. It's helpful (to the hostesses for sure!) if you come back and leave a link on this thread.

If you're not sure how to link your card on the thread here, here's how:
1. Open 2 windows or tabs: one window for your card and one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Go to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.

Love that you recycle some older techniques, Sabrina. Many I've never investigated before. Thanks.

Fun challenge. I haven't done embedded embossing in a long time. I love the look of it too! Here's my card:

Hello Friends, here is my take on this weeks Challenge! The picture doesn't show it well but the stripes/background are embossed with bubble type dots. Thank you for the fun challenge and thank you for taking a look!

Dawn, your link wasn't working because there were two http's in it so I've fixed that. It's very easy to leave the one that's already in the box when you use the link icon. Autoformatting of links pasted directly into posts is working again.
