I have made a new years resolution to blog more regularly As soon as my family life gets crazy-- the blog is the 1st thing to go! Here's to more sharing and stamping this year!
Another card for a swap I participated in. This Cool Treats set is a must have for your collection! I have made so many cute cards-- Ill be sharing them here. Its also one of my upcoming classes Stay tuned for an amazing class!
Love love love the "Lift Me Up" Bundle with the Hot air balloons. Can You see the embossing? I embossed with the sunburst die!
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:
POINTS TO NOTE:
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!
