Hey there, Tanisha here and I'm back with another Quick Quotes post.   

This month, we are featuring projects using the amazing PowderPuff Chalking Inks.   I created a faux letterpress look on my card by inking the raised part of an embossing folder with Pink Cheeks PowderPuff Chalking Inks

I placed my cardstock (the side that would face outward) over the inked raised side of the embossing folder. 

I ran it through my cuttlebug and voila-- I'm left with an inked debossed print.   This is a very easy technique and the result is fabulous.  The possibilities are endless, too!  Try different colors and patterns to personalize any project.

VELLUM TIP:  Make your vellum quote pop against any background by adhering it to a piece of white paper before attaching to your project.

Thanks for stopping by today!!
