Getting hammered.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today we are creating from the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder.

Remember that you want to pay attention if you want the front or back of the folder. If you want an image that is raised you will want the front of the folder where the logo is. If you want an image that is more concave you will want the back of the folder where it is blank or the copyright is displayed.

For this card you will need a Thick Very Vanilla Card Base, Mossy Meadow Mat, Blue Peacock Foil Paper for inner mat, Brightly Gleaming Designer Series Paper with the ornament punch, and ribbon.

Becoming part of the background.

It’s Technique Tuesday! When you are not sure if you want something to stand out then don’t let it. Instead glue on your accent and then emboss it. By embossing it you will give the illusion that it is all one piece.

Where a line can make a difference.

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended! Did you ever notice the line on the newer embossing folders? This is so you can line up your card stock and make it straight. If you have older folders you might consider grabbing a sharpie and a ruler. This line has been so helpful to me.

Happy Crafting!

Discovering new tools.

It’s Technique Tuesday! As you know our supplier for the 3D Embossing Folders has changed. With that comes a slightly different thickness. So you can either figure out how many pieces of card stock to shim under or you can purchase the new embossing plate.

Join me tomorrow night as I create with this new plate.

Happy Crafting!

Embossing on multiple papers.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! This is the day we learn how to emboss on vellum, window sheets, and glossy card stock. To color them you will need the Stampin’ Blends (alcohol markers). You can also emboss with powder and a heat tool but the blends bring a level of softness to the card.

Embossing with glossy paper.

It’s Technique Tuesday! Have you ever thought that embossing folder is pretty and I love the details but they don’t seem to pop? Have you tried it on glossy paper? I recently received a swap at OnStage and another demonstrator had taken the Country Floral 3D Embossing Folder and paired it with glossy paper. It was gorgeous!

Be watching for this technique tomorrow evening on Facebook Live at 7 pm.

Happy Crafting!
