Impressive but easy Embossing Folder Technique

Today, I decided to do some experimenting!  Ever get an idea in your head and you just HAVE to get it out!?  I get them all the time, USUALLY when I’m trying to go to sleep at night……UGH!

I wanted to see what would happen if you added Mod Podge to SU!’s cardstock so it’s covered and THEN run it through an Embossing Folder.  Yes, it’s messy.  Yes, you will want to wash your folder right away!   And YES it it really cool!!  After running it through (and washing my folder) I heat set it.  I am NOT very patient…….hence the heat drying!  I did it on Garden Green cardstock and I did it on Shimmery White from Stampin’ Up!  LOVE, LOVE LOOOOOVE their paper!  Well, let me be honest, I love all their product! hahaha   This is the main reason I became a SU! Demonstrator!  I wanted the discount since I wanted it ALL!!

After heat setting the paper, it dried so nicely, I just looked at it to decide what to do with it!  Yes, I fly by the set of my pants……Is that the right expression?  Well, the green called me more even though I had sponged the Shimmery White with multiple colors (it was gorgeous!), but the Garden Green looked so striking!

Here is a picture of the finished card and you tell me if you think it is striking!


I know! Right!?  It made me want to let the Paper be the STAR!  Since it was leaves, I pulled out my Vintage Leaves Bundle.  The front has the Framelit and the inside has both the stamp and the framelit!  I am so astonished how beautiful this turned out!  I’m going to be honest again……….I’m ALWAYS surprised when I design something and it comes out this good!  Don’t get me wrong, I can CASE with the best of them, but my ‘ideas’ don’t always work out!  I bet there a quite a few of you who can relate!

Here is a picture of the inside!

I think it has the perfect amount of space to write in, since I never have enough to say to fill it up!  Now, WHO do I send it to?!

Here is a close-up of the leaves:

Monday Creative Blog Hop!

Welcome back to the Blog Hop!

Today I am going to be sharing with you two of my SU! handmade cards that I have done this week!

The first one is one using the White Simply Pressed Clay along with the Alphanumeric Mold, the Clay is in the Big Catalog but you’ll find the Alphabet/numeric mold in the seasonal catalog (pg 32 #137854, for only $9.95), My friend had the mold so I let her do the letters for me, and once they were dry I cut them (there is a little clay around the letter if you did it right, that you can cut away the excess so the image is really bold!), then I colored them using our SU! Write Markers in these colors:  Daffodil Delight, Blackberry Bliss, Wild Wasabi, Pacific Point, Blushing Bride and Rose Red.  I used these colors because those are the colors in the DSP I used – Painted Blooms.

This way as usual with Stampin’ Up! everything coordinates!  After I applied the color I used Fast Fuse on the back of each letter and adhered it to my DSP.  If you haven’t used Fast Fuse, you HAVE to try it #129026, page 204 in the Catalog!  It’s the best adhesive that I have tried that works with EVERYTHING!

Once adhered to the Designer Paper, I went over the letters with my Versamark Pad, just pouncing over top of them, saying to myself…..boink, boink, boink……must be watching too may Disney Movies!  🙂

I then sprinkled Crystal Clear Embossing Powder over where I pounced the Versamark and then tipped the card over and flicked off the extra powder, then I heat set it and WOW!, it made the letters look like they were Ceramic!  Hopefully you can see that in the picture

I stamped the saying “@numberonemother” from the SU! set @SoSocial, LOVE this stamp set, it has just about everything you would EVER need to say in it!  I stamped that saying using Rose Red ink onto Blushing Bride paper and then made it pop out of the side between the Black paper and the Pacific Point Paper.  I also stamped the Chevron stamp using Rose Red ink onto Rose Red paper!  All Coordinating, and a very awesome card to send to your Mom, or a Mom to be!!

The next project I did was almost COMPLETELY Cased (Copy And Stamp Everything) from Sandy at:  StampWithSandy.com I really loved the simplicity of this card, plus it has layers, and diamonds (Rhinestones in SU! speak, but I like calling them DIAMONDS!).  the only thing I changed was I stamped my saying “Just Sayin'” from the Crazy About You stamp set onto Baked Brown Sugar (Sandy used Crumb Cake I think) then cut it out with the arrow from On Film thinlits, and topped it off with the Hello You Thinlits.  I love arrows!  They go with this saying perfectly!!

Crazy About you

I stamped the flower in Cherry Cobbler and stamped off the leaves using Baked Brown Sugar, then Put the white and the Bermuda Bay on top of the Base of Baked Brown Sugar!  I wrapped the white Bakers Twine around the white, I don’t like it when the ribbon shows on the inside.  This was a fun simple card that uses my thinlits (which I LOVE!) and I thank Sandy for the inspiration!

That’s it for me today, it was a long week for me!

Hope your day goes great and hopefully I’ll see you back next week…….maybe with some Blog Candy perhaps, hmmmmm?

Come back again!
