Embossing folders and ink ideas


embossing folder techniques with ink

Welcome on this Happy Easter weekend.  We are sharing different ideas on how to use embossing folders with ink on our Totally Techniques Stampin' Up! demonstrator blog hop.  You can 'hop' around the different blogs via the icons at the bottom of my post.  

I've used the soon to retire Starry Sky card stock.  I cut a card base and then a matt layer which originally was a quarter sheet of the card. I embossed this piece of card using the 3D Layering Florals embossing folder.  

Using a brayer, which I inked with white craft pigment ink I rolled it gently over the embossed side of the card to carefully add ink to the embossed raised design.  It can catch the 'flat' part of the card, but don't worry these possibly unwanted inked spots may disappear when you cut your design piece to suit your card size once the ink is dry. 

I cut my design and added it to a white card matt that was just a little larger than my design to accentuate the white flowers. 

To complete the card you can add a ribbon or silver thread looped to look like a bow under a simply stamped sentiment.  

If you like the 2022-2024 in color card then you'll want to get them now before they sell out.  They can be found in my online store via links below and from 9 April you'll find the Last Chance List for our 2023 - 2024 annual catalogue.  There will be lots of reductions and some awesome bargains to be had including the ink pads in these fabulous colours.  Let me know if you'd like to join my mailing list or subscribe via the button above to get details of the sale. 

Finally don't forget to visit the other lovely blogs in our Totally Techniques Hop with lots of inspiration for using ink with embossing folders. 

Hugs and thanks for stopping by.
