PaperTreyInk.com has a challenge on their BLOG every Monday that is explained with a video tutorial. This week was to use your dies to emboss instead of cut.
Well, I wanted to do many flowers as a textured background, and would require me to run the die through the machine more than once, and would flatten the first flower (is that clear?), so what I did instead was take the dies from the blossoms set and cut out a bunch of the flowers out of cereal boxes. I think I cheated a little on the challenge, but I did use the dies to emboss the image since I didn't have that shape as a texture plate...
I layered two flowers on top of each other and then laid out the flowers on my embossing machine. I then ran in through the machine with my cardstock on top.
This is how it turned out:
Stamp is PTI, along with die. Cardstock is Martha Stewart Craftstock, Georgia Pacific, Cereal Box Chipboard, fabric (yellow).
