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!

Out with the New

The masculine colors and feel to these Steamworks Greetings to Go cards had me digging through my specialty papers to find something rugged.  These handmade brown toned marbled papers are the just the perfect addition. Opened card with a double z fold
