Fun with Cute Crochet 3D Embossing Folder

Cute Crochet 3D Embossing Folder

Check out this fun texture using the NEW Cute Crochet 3D Embossing Folder #163792!! To emphasize the texture try sponging like this:


Sponging on Embossing Folders

Use a sticky note to mask each square so you can sponge on color. Use the handy Sponging Brushes #153611 to collect ink from an ink pad. Rub the sponge over the embossed card stock to add color to the raised areas. It's easy and fast!

Here are two samples that use different sides of the embossing folder.

Creating with Painter's Tape Technique

Idea using Painter's Tape

My last posted showed you how to use the Painter's Tape Technique for card making. Here is another idea. If you click the photo to enlarge it, you'll get a nice view of the texture created by using Painter's Tape to make the background.

A black base card POPS all the colors!! The sentiment and stars were created using the Wanted to Say Dies #161594. To review this Painter's Tape Technique click HERE. Try this!!

How to use tape to create greeting cards

Painter's Tape technique

This is called the Painter's Tape Technique - it's easy and unique! Use blue painter's tape because it is LOW tack adhesive. Start with 8 inches of tape for EACH color you intend to use. Lay the tape across a dye ink pad, sticky side down, and lightly rub the tape to pick up the ink.



Apply the inked tape to your card stock and press.



The Painter's Tape  Technique

Gently pull off the tape and the ink will remain on the card stock showing a unique texture. It's always different and irregular. Repeat with different colors. Use a different piece of tape for each color.



Here are Peach Pie and Pretty in Pink colors on Basic white cardstock. This is ready to use for a project.



This sample is being die cut with Spotlight on Nature Dies #163580.


#161594 Wanted to Say Dies

Here is the finished card featuring the Wanted to Say Dies #161594 in Basic Black Card Stock. The Painter's Tape background adds a unique ink texture!
