Tuesday Tip with Cathy – Cork Sheets

December 2, 2014

Hi Everyone,

 For this week’s Tuesday Tip I thought I would show you how to make the most Kaisercraft’s new 12×12 Cork Sheets.

 First up the Kaisercraft dies are perfect for cutting out a beautifully crisp cork diecut.  Just be sure to remove your diecuts from the dies slowly as the cork may tear if you are not careful

Once you have cut out your diecuts, you can alter the cork by stamping and embossing.  The first example is stamped with 2 tones of blue ink and the second example is stamped with white and embossed with white embossing powder for a crisper image.  The third example is stamped onto the cork then hand cut around the stamped image.

Here I have dry embossed the cork, which is a little trickier, as it can warp a little, but it is still very effective for creating a little more texture.  The cork can also be used with all your punches quite easily.  I coated one of the punched borders with gesso for a softer look.

 You can pretty much play around with any medium for different effects.  Here I have misted and painted the cork.

For a grungy distressed look try tearing your cork.

    These examples are terrific Cathy and also look simple enough for even me to do. Cannot wait to try these out and create some pages with the Kaisercraft sheets. TFS.
