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?
