PTI's MIM #166 Debossing Stamped Images by Dawn

My card using Dawn's technique debossing using dies.
You can play along MIM # 166
I had some trouble getting it to deboss rather that half cut, so I had to watch the video again.  This is probably my 5th or 6th try.....It worked once I got the pads in the right places..
PTI's Meadow Greens in Simply Chartreuse, Berry Sorbet and Pure Poppy
I ran the Berry Sorbet ink pad along the side to create the edge so that it matches the flower, a technique used by Jennifer McGuire.
I am waiting patiently for my BFF, Colleen, who is coming today after her granddaughters vollyball match.  She has been here in Bellevue since Friday for a tournament.  She will come and stay until Friday which is always so much fun.

  4. This ended up so pretty, Lin! I haven't done debossing yet and I'm dying to try. I think it would be cool to be able to use dies either way, but when I have tried anything (like impression plates) that use pads, I want to tear my hair out. My sister will be here for a long weekend and then after the first I'm hoping to try this and also get back to the wc where I'm STILL back at Day Five. I know, it makes you want to cry, but I'll get back to some sort of calm routine soon! Hugs to you both, Darnell
