Art With Heart October Blog Hop Featuring Embossing Folders

Hello and welcome,

Welcome to another Art With Heart Blog Hop. This month we are featuring Stampin' Up's! versatile range of Embossing Folders. There are new Embossing Folders available in every Stampin' Up! catalogue and they are an inexpensive way of adding WOW! to your projects. Currently there are 24 different Embossing Folders in the range.

Tonight we plan on showing you lots of ideas on how to use these folders.

For best results when using the Stampin' Up!'s 3D Embossing Folders; use the 3D Embossing Folder Plate; it adds a little more oomph to your die sandwich to make those 3D designs pop.

Tonight I will be sharing with you two cards that I’ve created using the Swirls and Curls Embossing Folder which is a standard Embossing Folder. This folder gives you a beautiful instant snow like feel when you create a card for Christmas.

For both cards I’ve used the same bundle Christmas Gleaming including the stamp set and punch pack. I have also used the Beautiful Boughs Dies for the branch and the smaller label die. Just by using different colours for your cards, you can get a totally different look with the two cards.

The Night of Navy card is combined with Copper Foil, Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and Celestial Copper Delicata Ink. As per above photo, I’ve used a Stampin' Sponge with the Copper Ink and lightly swirled the ink over the embossed cardstock which gave the card a different dimension and colour to it.

The Smoky Slate, Whisper White card is combined with Silver Foil, Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder, White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and Frost White Shimmer Paint.

I’ve used the same technique using a Stampin' Sponge with the Frost White Shimmer Paint which gives the card a frosted shimmer look.

Which card do you prefer? The Night of Navy with Copper or Whisper White/Smoky Slate with Sliver?

  1. Vicki your cards are both absolutely stunning - I can't choose between them but if I have to I find the retrained elegance of the white and grey card so very beautiful.

  2. Both cards are gorgeous, Vicki. I like that you've shown us the same design in two colours.

  3. Both lovely cards, Vicki, and it's hard to choose between them, but maybe the White/Silver I find a little easier to see all the details.

  4. Swirls and curls is a fabulous folder for Christmas, they are both lovely, with maybe a preference for navy from me.

  5. Fantastic cards Vicki! If asked to pick a favourite, I'd have to say the Silver and White as I just LOVE Silver and White together!

  6. What stunning cards Vicki, the night of navy is just beautiful and the white and silver is just striking! What gorgeous colour combinations and the swirls and curls folder looks great!

  7. Stunning cards Vicki! The white is very elegant, but the copper and navy takes my breath away. Love all those layers too.
