Many Ways To Emboss – Two of my Favorites Today!

Uncategorized

I just love to emboss! It always adds such a beautiful dimension to my handmade cards. Did you know there are tons of different ways to emboss? Watch this short video below that shows Brandi, from the Stampin' Up! Home Office, demonstrating a faux metal embossing technique.

Doesn't that look like fun? Ready to see another embossing technique?

Here's a video of me demonstrating another embossing technique, embossed foil. This was a card I did with my stamp clubs and it was a big hit.

If you're ready to give embossing a try but need a little more instruction or tips, please reach out!

Embossing Folder Tricks

Scrapbooking

Hey stampers….since Stampin' Up! has several Embossing Folders in our “Weekly Deals” this week, I thought I'd share some of my favorite “embossing folder tricks” you can use to step up your projects!

WeeklyDealsJan27

  • try using a Stampin' Sponge or Sponge Dauber to put ink on the raised parts. You can rub all over the raised image or just choose a few areas. Experiment and see which you prefer!
  • Use Versamark Ink and an embossing heat tool to put some shimmer on the raised parts; again, you can use this technique all over or just on specific areas.
  • Use a “hobby knife” to cut around parts of your embossed image or to cut out an entire piece to use on a card front.
  • Lastly, try using a sanding block or tool on the embossed piece; if you use Cor'dinations paper, because of the white inner “core”, the results can be quite unique. You can also sand embossed pieces created with regular cardstock or patterned (like Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper).

See all the Embossing folders that are on sale in the Weekly Deals section of my online store.

What are some ways you “step up” your embossed cards? Leave me a comment…I always like to learn from you!!
