How lucky was I that this week's #CASEingTuesday card featured an embossing folder? You know, I'd like to say I planned this well ahead of time, but you know me, I'm always keeping in real and honest with you. No, this pretty much was just a stroke of luck!
Yesterday, I told you that the Swirls and Curls Textured Impressions Embossing Folder is my favorite in the holiday catalog. Well, the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder is my runner up. And let me tell you, it's a photo-finish!
You'll notice there's a big difference in the Dynamic Textured Impressions Folders. I've had many stampers contact me and say they can't run it through their Big Shot; it's too thick! And they're right; Dynamic Textured Impressions Folder are thicker then what we're used to. They are meant to leave a more dynamic impression on the paper. They do fit in the Big Shot, but only if you use just one cutting pad! To make your 'sandwich', use the following guidelines:
Now, there are more ways to enhance the impressions you get from the Dynamic Textured Impressions Folders. Today for example, I used my Crumb Cake ink pad to ink the inside front cover of the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and then ran a sheet of Crumb Cake Cardstock through it like normal, using the above "sandwich" guideline. Just look at the difference!
There are a few ways to ink up your embossing folders. The first is to use aSponge Brayer. Run it over your ink pad and then running gently overthe inside front cover of the folder. (Remember the front is the side with the Stampin' Up! logo on it!) For this card, I wanted it to look a bit more rustic, so I applied the ink pad directly to the cover, dabbing it around to create lighter and darker places to give it a more aged look.
