Faux Tiles

I have been having a blast creating tiles for the new Delft collection. I'm generally not a fan of the color blue, only because I wear blue for work...for the last 25+ years.  I however love this shade of blue especially with the pop of yellow. You'll be seeing yellow flowers on most of my projects this month. I actually used them around the house for d├ęcor and needed a change.  They ended up in my craft stash and am happy to report that they've all been recycled!
So to create the tiles I went waaaay back in my stash to use up some perforated pages that came in the Sunken Treasures 2001 collection. They are 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 and already perforated into small squares.

 I stamped the tile stamp repeatedly on the page making sure to go off the edges.
Slightly bend the paper on the perforations and ink the edges.
I got carried away with the bending and some rows came off. 
Ink paper with clear embossing ink, sprinkle Ultra Thick Embossing powder and heat set.

Here's just a few samples using the Delft Greetings to Go with the tiles.



  1. Wow---absolutely stunning! (And, I remember those perforated squares...they were cool!)

  2. This technique is crazy-cool. Love the cards you made with the pieces. I'm going to have to play around with this!

  3. Really wonderful, I have got to try this, your cards looks so very special.

  4. Love the pop of yellow! Really pretty cards Lisa, I may have to scraplift some of these!
