Welcome to Our Tuesday Tips for June! We’re a group of Stampin’ Up Demonstrators from around the world who come together to share our creations with the goal of inspiring others. This month we are sharing different techniques for embossing. I hope you will learn some new techniques to try in the future.
I created my card using the Friends Are Like Seashells Bundle and the Seashells Embossing Folder. I truly love this collection of products. The stamp sets has some wonderful images and sentiments as I love the ocean. However the dies and embossing folder really turn regular cards into WOW cards.
I used my blending brushes to create a background using lightly inked Misty Moonlight and Blushing Bride. Once I had the background completed, I put the paper into the 3-D Seashells Embossing Folder AND I placed the die set into the embossing folder as well. I ran the package through my Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine. The paper was embossed and cut at the same time! I really love the effect and not having to worry about lining up the dies after it was already embossed. So I’d suggest that you try this technique:
- Add the paper to be embossed into the embossing folder
- Place the dies on top of the paper and make sure they are in the proper alignment
- Close the embossing folder
- Run the ‘package’ through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine
