Techie Friday: Faux Silkscreen

Tonight, my friend and stamper Cami booked a private class. That is, the class is at her house, instead of mine. We are following my Terrific Techniques format with three cards and three matching technique cards. The first technique is a new one for me called Faux Silkscreen.

Stamps: Elements of Style
Paper: Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy, Cherry Cobbler, Vellum, Whisper White
Ink: Cherry Cobbler
Accessories: Dimensionals, 1 3/8" square punch, Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding, Basic Jewels Pearls, Itty Bitty Punch, Big Shot, Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder

Here is a close-up of the card:

I got this idea at Stampin' Up!'s Leadership Conference in January from my FABULOUS roommate Lisa Pressley. Here's her original:

I guess I liked her Baja Breeze frame!

Happy Stamping!



  1. What a cool technique! I have to try that! Beautiful card, too!

  2. Fun Technique, Sara. With a beautiful result. Love both the cards. Great colors.

  3. Beautiful cards, and wow, I love the color combo of the NQN, Baja and Cobbler!

  4. Very cool cards! So nice of you to give private lessons too ;)

  5. Very nice! I've made a card with vellum overlay before, but I didn't know the name of the technique.

  6. Wow - so pretty! What a great look. And how cool that you do private lessons.

  7. You're so right on with this technique! Just had to try it myself and I'll use it in my June Angels Who Stamp class. TFS

  8. Such a lovely card! And a great reminder for a fun technique.

  9. Great card and great technique! I'm going to do this technique at my July workshop! TFS!
