Faux Tile

I love, love, love using my Simply Scored scoring tool. It's so easy to make fun projects with it! One neat technique is "faux tile."
stamp set: Day of Gratitude
card stock: Pear Pizzazz, More Mustard, Very Vanilla, Soft Suede, River Rock
accessories: Chantilly Crochet Trim, a brad from Vintage Trinkets, Spice Cake DSP
tools: Color Spritzer Tool, Decorative Label punch, 1/16" Circle punch
ink: More Mustard, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Suede, River Rock, River Rock marker

The "faux tile" technique is super easy. Start with a piece of Whisper White or Very Vanilla card stock. For both the length and width, you will want to cut your piece in half-inch increments. The Very Vanilla card stock on the above card measures 2" x 5-1/2".
Using the small tip of the stylus, score every 1/2". You will want to press firmly so that you get a really good indentation.

Next, just stamp your images using gentle pressure so that your image doesn't stamp in the "grout lines." You can also use a sponge to gently rub ink (River Rock used on my card) onto your "tiles." Again, rub gently to try to keep the "grout lines" clean.
That's it! Easy and fun  :)
Stop by my Facebook Page to see another card using the "faux tile" technique.
