Emobssing Folder Technique 4!

Today I am sharing with you the fourth and final technique in this series — Embossing on the embossed and misting. Well, in my case, color bursting it! The first thing I did was run a white piece of flat card stock through my machine with an embossing folder. I tool my embossing ink and lightly rubbed it over the raised image and embossed it with penny embossing powder. I sprinkled three Color Burst colors and misted. Lastly I used a baby wipe to pick up the color on the raised image. As that dried I die cut my tag and stamped the image. I used alcohol marker to color it in. I assembled the card on a brown glitter card base.  To see a demonstration of this technique please visit HERE . For supplies check out Brutus Monroe .

Embossing Folder Technique 3!

Today I am going to share with you the third technique in this four part series — Foil! That’s right –FOIL! Give it a try! You will absolutely love it. I used Rinea Foiled Paper with beautiful stars, but you could use just regular aluminum foil from your kitchen to make a fun masculine card with gears or outer space theme. I like the Rinea for this card because it holds it shape so well and is hard ti wrinkle. You can find the entire line with gorgeous colors and tools Here . I used the embossing folder and stamp set from Brutus Monroe . To see this technique please visit Four Techniques .Make sure you come back tomorrow to see the last technique — it is a show stopper!

Embossing Folder: Technique 2

Today I am sharing with you the second technique to our four part embossing series: distressing! This technique is one of my favorites. It works best with cardstock that has a different color core. Run your paper sandwiched between the embossing folder through your machine. Now, lightly sand it until the color in the core of the paper peaks through! To see the tutorial I created for you visit HERE . For the supplies, please find them Here . Come back tomorrow and see the third technique!

How to Use an Embossing Folder: Technique 1

Embossing Folders are so much fun and have lots of uses! They can really bring another layer of depth to a card or project. Over the next few days I am going to share with you four ways you can use an embossing folder. Today I am sharing with you the first and most used way: emboss. To do this technique you simply run a sheet of paper through your machine in the embossing folder. This on its own is a gorgeous use! I used a piece of white card stock to create the card above. I stamped a sentiment and used Silver Embossing Powder. I layered it on a silver glitter card base. The embossing folder I used can be found here Petal Lace.

I created an tutorial on all four of the techniques that you can view: Here .
