Stampin’ With Sami: Inked Texturz Plates Technique

Each Saturday, I hope to have a Stampin’ With Sami (SWS) Lesson for you -in the form of a tutorial with step-by-step photos. It will either be a fancy technique or a cool new way to use a product. The purpose of me bringing your these mini workshops is to hopefully convince you to become one of my lovely customers :O) Your purchases from me keep this blog going.

For today’s lesson, I am going to teach you how to add ink to your Texturz plates so you have more dimension to your embossed cardstock. This is kind of a messy technique so be sure to have some handwipes or a cloth ready! :O)


  • Backgrounds I Diamond Texturz Plate or plate of your choice (including accessories needed: Silicone Rubber pad, Texturz Impressions pad, and multipurpose platform)
  • Bashful Blue Cardstock or color of your choice
  • Rubber Brayer tool
  • Not Quite Navy Classic Ink or color of your choice
  • Scrap paper
  • Big Shot machine
  • Handwipes (optional)

TIP: Work quickly so that your ink doesn’t start to dry on your Texturz plate!!

1. Ink your brayer until it is well coated with ink.

2. With your Texturz plate on some scrap paper, roll your brayer over the surface of your Texturz plate.
3. Re-ink your brayer and roll it over your Texturz plate until the entire surface is coated with ink.
4. Run your cardstock through the Big Shot using the inked Texturz plate. Be careful to set your paper down without rubbing the paper across the ink.
