Hi Stampers, welcome to my Creative & Chaotic craft room! Today’s project features Inked Embossing Folder technique for a Broke Stampers Unite Challenge.
I am a little behind on my challenges. This was actually last weeks challenge. In the end, I did get it completed.
If you have never used the Inked Embossing Folder Technique, it is quite easy. It is exactly as it sounds. On the smooth side of the embossing folder, I tapped my Early Esspresso ink pad directly to the plastic. You could also use sponge daubers or a brayer if you wanted to. I like a nice dark layer of ink, so I use the ink pad itself on the plastic.
I carefully place Crumb Cake card stock in the embossing folder, making sure I didn’t wiggle it too much. Then, I ran it through my Big Shot. The lighter wood grain is the part of the embossing folder that didn’t have ink on it.
The fox is stamped with Early Espresso ink. I cut it with the Banner Framelits and layered it on a piece of Island Indigo card stock. Once again, I have cut apart my burlap ribbon to make strands of thread. The Grateful is from Seasonal Frame Thinlit Dies. This is retired, however, you can still get it on the clearance rack.
Let’s go see what Carol and Terri came up with for this challenge. Carol’s blog can be found here. Terri’s blog can be found here.
