VIDEO – Faux Tile Technique

A quick and easy technique which produces WOW results is the Faux Tile Technique. Today, I have a video to show you how simple it is to create this technique. Over the next few days, I will be showcasing some of the different tiling effects.

Here is the card that I made in the video.


  • Here are the supplies, measurements and some basic instructions. Check out the video for full details on the technique.
  • Supplies:
    • Stamps – Falling Flowers, Itty Bitty Greetings
    • Card Stock – Thick Whisper White, Coastal Cabana, Whisper White
    • Ink – Coastal Cabana, Sahara Sand
    • Accessories – Basic Jewel Pearls
  • Measurements:
    • Card Base (Thick Whisper White): 21cm x 14.8cm scored at 10.5cm (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”)
    • Coastal Cabana: 13.8cm x 9.5cm (5¼” x 4″), 9.5cm x 1cm (4″ x 3/8″)
    • Whisper White: 13.3cm x 9cm (5-1/8″ x 3-7/8″)
  • Instructions:
    • Create a grid on the Whisper White layer using a scoring board or the scoring tool on a paper trimmer.
    • Today’s card is scored diagonally at 2.5cm (1″).
    • Stamp main images with Coastal Cabana ink to create a tile look. The images will not stamp in the grid lines.
    • Use a Sahara Sand marker to fill in the ‘grout’ on the tiles.
    • Attach tile panel to Coastal Cabana layer and then to front of card base.
    • Stamp sentiment on Coastal Cabana strip with Coastal Cabana ink and attach across the lower part of the card front.
    • Add some pearls for embellishment.
  • Tips:
    • Some grid sizings:
      • score every 2.5cm (1″) horizontal and vertical
      • score 2cm (1″) then 1cm (½”) horizontal and vertical
      • score every 1cm (½”) diagonally
      • score every 2.5cm (1″) diagonally
  • Just a little decoration for the inside and envelope …
