Wow! That was a lot of tips in one video. Let me share an image of each one to help you see it better.


Dimension Technique #1 – Simply add a line to define the wall and the floor


Dimension Technique #2 – Use Stampin’ Blends to add a shadow under your image


Dimension Technique #3 – A Stitched Shape oval or the Layering Oval dies create a great rug 


Dimension Technique #4 – Another straight line creates a definition of sky to water


Dimension Technique #5 – How about a wavy line for the feel of waves on the water


Dimension Technique #6 – Mask off the stamped image and overlay with another stamp (I used Lillypad Lake)


Dimension Technique #7 – Mask off your image. Fussy cut a wave pattern from cardstock and use as a mask to sponge the water onto your card


Dimension Technique #8 – Use the fussy cut waves above and adhere to your card – add the boat with Stampin’ Dimensionals


Dimension Technique #9 – Use the sponged side for even more added depth
