Play! and a tutorial.. May 16

Don't you love when a layout just comes together quickly? It's starts by having really fun papers - of course it's GCD Studious! It also helps when you have a super cute model and baby girl is always good for a shot!
These are from the new line Zippity Collection! The main paper is called Big Flower. The embellishments are from the Artsy Urban Collection by Melody Ross. ( Oh yeah, buttons, flowers, borders - all Artsy Urban!)

The only things that are not GCD Studios on this layout are the chipboard letters by Heidi Swapp and the jute.  Did you notice the arrow and the circle sewn on the layout?  I had to do a little accent because I get such a kick out of how silly baby girl is- I mean kids will play anywhere and make anything fun!

Love, love, love these little flowers, had to give you one last look!
Now for a tutorial!!
Ok ladies! dust off you embossing guns! We are going to make tiles!
 I 'm making mine out of packing - it's a little sturdier than paper...

I cut them inot 1 1/2 squares but you can make them what ever size you'd like!
Because I am using packaging - it soaks up the ink really quick so I used this liquid clear embossing ink - it stays wet longer and is thicker coverage than using a stamp pad.

I dipped it in Utee ultra thick embossing powder, heated it with my gun and reapeated this step with blue and gold embossing powder.

Once I got the color I liked I dipped it in the Utee and heated it again until the tile was quite thick! I even added a flower in one!

And here is the result...

And what I did with it!  I  used the technique on the letters! Imagine the possibilities!

The backgraound was painted with Gesso and sprayed with Smooch. And the cute lil' heart?
GCD Studios of course!
Thanks for looking!
