Do you know how to get this lovely blank oval area using the Stampin' Up! Textured Impressions Embossing Folders???
Normally when you use one of the Impressions Folders you get an all over textured impression like this:
But I got a cool swap at Convention from Betty Kincannon who learned this technique from this blog here and here. I wanted to try this with our Stampin' Up! Impressions folders, and I knew you'd want to see a tutorial, so I modified the instructions to use my Stampin' Up! products and I eliminated a few of her steps to suit my needs.... HERE YOU GO...
(wood template info at bottom of post)
Then you get THIS!!
I used these frames from a national craft store chain.
UPDATE.... so I'm thinking this morning.... Why not make my own template/frame?!? I think we could use our Stampin' Up! Chipboard sheets, and any Big Shot die, and cut an opening in a rectangular piece of chipboard and make our own frame... need to give it a try when I get home this afternoon!! Let me know if you try it!
