New Fluttering Embossing Folder from Stampin’ Up!
Another favorite accessory from the new Stampin’ Up! catalog is the Fluttering Embossing Folder! A nice feature of this embossing folder is that it measures 6″ x 6″ and allows you to emboss in landscape or portrait 🙂
This card uses the Brayer and Wisteria Wonder ink to create an “ombre” look. The base cardstock (8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″) is the new “Whisper White Thick” cardstock which is much sturdier than our regular Whisper White. The Wisteria Wonder layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″ and the embossed Whisper White is a smidgeon smaller at 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″. I’m not an expert with the Brayer but it was pretty easy to create this look. After inking the brayer, start off the cardstock and go softly from the bottom up. Just keep repeating till you get the look you like 🙂 I finished off the card with a pretty bow tied with Wisteria Wonder Seam Binding and a few Rhinestones. Here’s the list of supplies:
This card uses Sponge Daubers to add the new 2015-2017 In Color inks to the embossed butterflies. It’s a little tricky to not get some of the ink on the background so I purposefully went outside the lines with softer sponging. The embossed panel is 3″ x 5-1/2″ and the base cardstock is Mint Macaron. Supplies:
This last card using the Fluttering Embossing Folder from Stampin’ Up! is probably my favorite! I just love the soft, pastel colors and also the minimal layering. I did take more care to keep the background pretty clean but it’s almost impossible not to have a few ink smudges here and there 🙂 The trick is to use the flat part of the Dauber in the center of the butterflies and the edge of the dauber around the edges of the butterflies. I used the Thick Whisper White cardstock for the base of the card and the Organza Ribbon goes all the way around the card. Supplies:
