Card tutorial: Watercolor effect using Position-It stamping tool

When a card idea works out, you just have to share!!

I got this stamp at a garage sale, and really had no plans for it but just loved it.

Fast forward to last night and I see this watercolor technique using those stamp positioning tools. Bingo!!

We have been testing out and doing instructional videos on our new Position It "The Ultimate Stamping Tool" and I will admit ... I really didn't think it was a tool I needed. THEN I started playing with it!! Hook, line and sinker, baby ... I am hooked!!

Embossing folder technique: Embossing "diffuser"


It seems hard to find embossing folders I like that have an open [non-embossed] center to place sentiments.

There are products you can purchase called diffusers that allow you to omit an area of the embossing folder from connecting with the paper. 

I'll explain in a little pictorial. This isn't a new technique but worth sharing here as it has come to my attention that some people aren't familiar with this embossing technique.
