Do you want some texture in you life?

I had a really great question come up today by one of my favorite friends/customer. She wanted to order the texture plates but with all the items listed was a little confused my all the empressor pads and embossing pads you have to order to dry emboss and didn't understand that you have to use them with a die-cut machine.. So here is the option I presented to her.

I first selected the pattern I wanted to use.. The plates are double sided.. I had a big area to cover so I used the Empressor Stylus( you can view it here) the tip of this stylus it large and makes a smother impression than the smaller wooden handled stylus's... I first made broad stokes to find the image then rubbed back and forth in small circles on the image to deepen the impression.

What a great way to add texture for a fraction of the cost...

You can view the Texture Plates in the current Stampin' Up "Idea book and catalog" page 203 or here on line.

Hope I have inspired you to add a little texture to you life.
