Cherry Lynn Dies Meet Vinyl

Hello There,

Today I'm here to share with you how you can get more mileage out of your Cherry Lynn Dies.

This die is English Tea Party DL 101 from Cherry Lynn Designs. The snowflake is from Just-Rite stamps.  The picture doesn't do it justice but it is all gold embossed. The embossing powder actually sparkles. You can find all of the above products over at FargoCat Shops. Click the image to see the sparkle.
To see how I was able to emboss the image please continue reading.
I cut the doily out of cricut vinyl. Contact paper would probably work. The vinyl works well cause it can be easily re-positioned...meaning I can stick it to my paper and then lift it back up when I'm done. So basically I'm creating a mask.
Here I've laid the mask over white cardstock and spritzed it with Glimmer Mist.
Because it adheres tightly to the paper the liquid doesn't seep underneath.
You can see my doily image after I removed the vinyl.
Next I tried it using a brayer and ink. Worked well.
You can use this mask over and over. Just wipe the top of it clean.
This time I used an ink dauber. Rubbed white ink over the vinyl mask.
I did this same technique with the card except I used versamark so I could gold emboss the image.

Need to get a start on some of those Christmas cards.
