Inking Embossing Folders


I want to apologize for the unedited pictures.  My computer crashed a couple weeks ago and along with my computer, I lost my photo editing program.


My first project was made using the Forever Young cartridge.

The first thing I did was ink one side of my embossing folder.  I then took a 4 X 4 3/4 inch piece of dark colored card stock and embossed it with the inked folder 



This is what the folder looks like when you remove the paper.  The ink will rinse off your folder with warm soapy water.  I do this a lot and have never had a folder stain.


This is my paper after it was embossed with the inked embossing folder. 


I used the "Emblem" feature found on page 36 of the Forever Young cartridge handbook and cut it at 4 inches.



This is my completed card.


For my next card, I cut this tag out from the Jubilee cartridge found on page 81 of the handbook. I cut out 8 tags total. I cut out 4 in white, 1 each of 1, 2 , 3 and 4 inches. I cut out 4 in black, 1 each of 1.25, 2.25, 3.25, and 4.25 inches.   I then cut the small layer and the loop off to make a rectangle.  



I then took the white rectangles, and used a small amt of removable adhesive and layered he white cuts making sure they were as centered as possible. I then took black Momento ink and randomly stamped a flower on the layered paper.  Make sure you use an ink that will not run.  After I stamped on the flowers, I also randomly stamped small leaves. 

I then colored the flowers and leaves with alcohol ink markers.  

I then separated the layers, and adhered the white colored layers to the appropriate sized black layers, then completed layering all layers.

Here is my completed card. 

The flower and lead stamps, and sentiment is from Close to My Heart. 



For my next card I used the cartridges Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2 and Every Day Pop Up Crds. 

The bird is found in Every Day Pop Up Cards on page 29 of the handbook, cut at 2 inches. I used black gel pen to outline the birds wing.

The "Thank You" is found  in Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2 on page 24 of the handbook, cut at 1.75 inches.  I used Cream Pearl Pen  on the flowers and Transparent Rose Pearl Pen on the "Thank You".   I also embellished with precut flowers, buttons and pearls.
