- To create this look simply emboss onto colored cardstock and sand the tops of the embossed images. (Trick: I keep a nail file in my crafting case for distressing and it works great!)
- For this one I stamped various distress inks onto a craft mat, spritzed with pearlized water, and pressed watercolor cardstock into it. Without letting it dry I ran it through my Cuttlebug, and not only did I get a beautifully embossed and colored images, but it was also instantly dry! (triple score!)
- This one is just as it sounds. I stamped on my cardstock first using lots of various images and colors, then ran it through the embossing folder. This is a fun technique that adds lots of dimension.
Ink Tipped Embossing
- I totally just made up the name for this technique by the way hehehe. Run your cardstock through the embossing machine, and lightly run an ink pad over your embossed images. I chose GoldenGlitz Delicata for my example.
- I couldn't do a post without showing how beautiful this is when it is only embossed. And to top it off I've created a project showing how you can use the tried and true dry embossing technique in your crafting...
