Free Tutorial- Emboss with your Stampin Up Die!

Love love love the "Lift Me Up" Bundle with the Hot air balloons.  Can You see the embossing?  I embossed with the sunburst die!  

Pin It!

This was made for a swap.  Here are a few Pictures to show you how to do the embossing with a die:

You will need the Silicone Mat, 6x6 white backing cardboard (from the DSP packages) and 6x6 chipboard packaging (from the glimmer paper or specialty paper packages), the Magnetic plate and 1 cutting plate.  Plus the card stock  you are going to emboss.

Stack your 6x6 pieces and your Silicone mat as shown:

Put them on top of your magnetic plate with the die CUTTING SIDE UP! (no cutting plate yet)

Put just 1 cutting plate on top of the die

Run it through your big shot and your card stock should look like this: 

  • This is a lighter, more subtle,  embossing than Embossing folders.
  • Every big shot is different.  I used just one white DSP cardboard. I used 2 at the beginning and it tore my card stock.  You may need to add a 6x6 piece of copy paper, card stock or a 2nd white DSP cardboard depending your Bigshot tension.  
  • Stamp your card stock first.  

Many Thanks to my demo friend Connie for teaching me how to do this!
