SSINKspiration Technique Challenge #SSINKTC37: Tile Effect Vintage Leaves

Good morning and Happy Monday!  After a crazy busy week (they seem to all be like that lately) it's time for another challenge SSINKspiration blog to start the week and this time it's a technique challenge. These challenges are always fun to get us trying new ideas and techniques and see how we can use them on projects.  This month's technique is the tile effect and it's so easy and pretty cool.

I started with Crumb Cake cardstock for the cardbase and then added a layer of Soft Suede cardstock behind the Night of Navy cardstock that was embossed with the Big Shot and Cable Knit Dynamic Embossing Folder.  Next I added a piece of Petals & Paisleys Speciality Designer Series Paper and cut it out with the Big Shot and Lots of Labels Framelits.

For the stamped image I started by taking a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and scored it every 1/2" on both sides using the Stampin' Trimmer to create my tiles and then stamped it with the Vintage Leaves stamp set and inks to coordinate with the DSP and then matted it with Cajun Craze cardstock.  The greeting is from the Basket of Wishes stamp set and was stamped in Night of Navy ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and then cut it out with the Big Shot and Layering Ovals Framelits before attaching it to the cardfront with dimensionals.

For the final touches I added a little piece of the 5/8" Burlap Trim and then a knot tied with the 3/8" Mint Macaron Sheer Linen Ribbon.

The tile look is great for this fall themed card and I love all the great colors in this designer series paper that really makes it versatile.  The other design team members are sharing some fun cards using this technique so go check them out and then we would love for you to play along with us and share what you create.
