On Monday night at Big Shot Club, we learned five different ways to use the embossing folders. Everyone's favorite was the brand new Elegant Lines folder, with Vintage Wallpaper a close second. These are some of the projects we made, several of which combine the use of the brayer with the embossed folder.
You can brayer ink on either side of your embossed cardstock, either inking the raised pattern or the pattern's negative. You can also brayer the folder itself before you put the cardstock in and run it through the Big Shot. The folders look awesome just plain, of course, but my favorite technique is the card on the right, with the Elegant Lines folder brayered heavily with Rich Razzleberry ink.
We used the new stick-on pearls for all of these cards. I love how there are many different sizes of pearls, so I could fit them into the embossed circles on the Elegant Lines pieces. See them there? You may have to look closely.
We also played with the BEST new ribbon in the catalog--the Rich Razzleberry satin ribbon. It is just plain gorgeous, no other word for it! I realized that Rich Razzleberry really is my favorite Stampin' Up color right now. No wonder my fingers are usually Razzleberry-colored!
PS--we can take one more person in Big Shot Club! Join us on the first Monday night of the month for two hours of fun and educational projects. You do not have to own or purchase a Big Shot to join, although you certainly can buy one on the installment plan. Contact me!
Gorgeous!! I love adding pearls to the elegant lines as well!
I love this as a quick but elegant gift set. Christmas is coming!!
