WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #48 – WAYS WITH THE TIN TILE EMBOSSING FOLDER!

I have been using the Tin Tile Embossing Folder a lot lately.  This Embossing Folder is so popular every time I use it in class too.  Everyone loves it.  You don’t have to just run it through the Big Shot with  a piece of card in the folder, Why not try some other cool ways to use it.

I found this video from Stampin’ Up! with a great tip for getting the best impression on your card but also some other fun ways to take your embossed card that extra step. So today for Wednesday’s WOW! #48 we are looking at ways you can use the Tin Tile Embossing Folder.  I have a card below that I had actually used this idea on it before I even saw this video so be sure to look below.

I have to say I have yet to try embossing the Foil Sheets but don’t they look just gorgeous.  (adding to my list to do …)  And they looked so spectacular lightly sanding them and inking over them in parts as it showed in the video.

I like the card inked too after it has been embossed with the folder, but sponging over it with the Shimmer Paint does take the card to the next level.  I shared that video a few weeks ago of how to do that.   You can see that video -> HERE.

I will share the shimmered card piece again for you here below.

Using the idea of adding the Shimmer Paint to your embossed card we used that on one of our cards for the Shimmer Class last week.  Everyone just loved this too and we dragged out the good and faithful set Lovely As A Tree.  It’s been a while since we have used this set but it never gets dated.  It lends itself to so many occasions and techniques. NOTE: If you don’t have this set yet do yourself a favour and grab it.  You can order it in my store now -> HERE.

Here is the card we made.  Using the Copper Shimmer Paint we lightly daubered over the embossed card in places to add some shine.  Just a note too.  For the tree we daubered over some Copper Shimmer directly on the stamp.  We also did that with the Sentiment which is from the Host Set Hung With Care.

So now you have some important items you need to be sure to get:

Tin Tile Embossing Folder, Shimmer Paint, Lovely As A Tree.  Head to me store now to grab them. (link above)

Have fun with it.  Thanks for visiting me.

VIDEO SURVEY – CAN YOU TAKE A MOMENT PLEASE?

This is a different type of post today.  I am considering classes and my direction for next year.  Videos and tutorials are becoming a big part of the way we share stamping techniques and projects with each other.  Is that how you want to see them??

I would love your views and have put together a very short survey.  It is 2 very quick questions. Would you mind taking about 20 seconds out of your day to answer the 2 questions please??

That would be really great.  I love to hear your ideas.

Here is the link to the survey -> HERE.

Thanks for taking the time to complete this for me. And Thanks for following me along on this crazy, creative journey. 🙂

WEDNESDAY’S! WOW # 27 – THE POPULAR ROOTED IN NATURE BUNDLE!

With so many wonderful new products in this catalogue I thought I would focus today for Wednesday’s WOW! on a very popular bundle.  This is the Rooted In Nature bundle.  Have you seen it yet?  I think it is one that will rival the long lasting Lovely As A Tree stamp set.

The stamp set has a number of different trees and leaves and it also has some lovely sentiments.  You get 16 stamps all up.  The matching dies cut out most of the trees and leaves.  In addition there are a couple of leaf dies that will emboss the leaves.  Here is the bundle below.

Here are a couple of projects made by Stampin’ Up! artists using this bundle.   You can see the diversity of projects with it.  Not just for the masculine cards but suitable for anyone.  I think this will be great for Christmas cards too.  What do you reckon??

Do you want to see it in action?  Check the video below.  (If you receive these updates by email be sure to go directly to the blog post by clicking on the blog title above so that you will be sure to see it).

This bundle is available now in store -> HERE.  Please use the Host Code:  FRS6ZZ6G ($126.75 clear mount – you get a lot in this bundle).
