In my last post I mentioned that I was a presenter at convention in Disneyland Paris and I shared with you one project that I demonstrated. Here I have another which involves using the Big Shot to emboss fabric. Above if you look closely you can see that the melon mambo Flirtatious fabric is embossed and this is achieved by using a piece of fabric, cardstock (I used whisper white) and Big Shot multipurpose adhesive sheets. If you peel away the printed backing paper on the adhesive sheet and position it onto your fabric (reverse side of fabric) and smooth it out. Then remove the other backing sheet and stick on to a piece of cardstock. Make sure that our fabric and cardstock are slightly bigger than the adhesive sheet and it's much easier to handle. You can then use your Big Shot to die cut a shape, I used the Top Note Die and then use an embossing folder to emboss your die cut. The Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder works really well for this.
This process adds great texture and a different dimension to your project and teams up well with our new hostess only stamp set Simply Soft which is watercoloured using the blender pens and ink pads.
If you'd like to see either of these techniques in more detail then why not drop me an email to book a workshop or find out about my techniques club which will be starting in January. Enjoy a free techniques class once a month for 10 months and agree to spend a minimum of £15 at each class. For one of the months you will be the lucky person to receive the hostess spends which can be used to buy exclusive hostess/qualifying order items like Simply Soft or to buy other items from the current catalogues. You're spend will be a minimum of £25 and you'll also receive technique training, the project you make each month and a FREE copy of all current catalogues during the 10 month period. Many of my customers who have taken part in one of these clubs, join in every year as they love the opportunity to try products before they buy them as well as learning wonderful new techniques along the way.

Below I've used the same technique on the fabric. This time I've used Deck the Halls fabric and the new Petite Pennants Builder Punch to make a vintage feel Christmas card. Also included is paper from the Designer Series Paper Stack in Regals and a sentiment from Curly Cute. Sponging and an additonal top note die finish off a simply but elegant card.
And of course the Victoria lace and antique brads just add the final touch of 'vintage'.
Have a great day even though the weather's not great and pop back soon.
