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!

Until next time ~ Happy Crafting!

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 .

Check back tomorrow to see the next technique!

Color Burst Card

I am obsessed lately with Color Burst! I created a couple of cards using an embossing technique. There are a few things to keep in mind when playing with any kind of paint or ink. The most important is to keep your color families together. Keep reds, oranges and yellows in one family and blues and greens in another family. There is one exception to this rule and that is PURPLE. Purple will turn everything brown except for blue and red, so mix it with only those colors. I also like to just use three colors at a time. If you keep those two things in mind sky’s the limit and whatever your create surely will be a masterpiece!
