Stamp With Your Texture Embossing Folders!

Today's card design is one of the projects we'll be creating at this week's Wow Techniques Class!  The technique is Texture Stamping with Embossing Folders.

The cards feature stamping with the Lacy Brocade Texture Impressions Folder, and also feature the beautiful images from Watercolor Winter.

Look at the lovely texture on this tone-on-tone card!  I love it!  I started with a Crumb Cake card base, then added the stamped background.

Here is a close-up of the stamped background.  It's super-easy to achieve this look, too! 

Make Your Own Texture Stamped Background

Stamped impressions - inking

  • Use a soft rubber brayer to brayer ink onto the "logo" side of your texture embossing folder.  You want it to have a lot of ink.  TIP: If you have the new Firm Foam Ink Pads, you'll get better coverage by directly dabbing and pressing the ink pad onto the folder (careful, rubbing the pad may ruin it's surface).

Stamped impressions - burnishing

  • Lay your card stock on the opposite side of the folder.
  • Flip the folder closed, then use a non-inked brayer to firmly burnish the entire folder to transfer the ink onto the card stock.

I decorated the card with four 1-1/4" Square Punch blocks.  Each square is punched from Crumb Cake card stock, and all the edges were sponged with Early Espresso ink.  The pine and pine cone images were colored with Always Artichoke and Early Espresso Markers before stamping.  Then, they were "frosted" with a 2-Way Glue Pen and Dazzling Diamonds glitter.  Greetings of the Season sentiment is stamped in Early Espresso.

The background of the card is wrapped with Crumb Cake Seam Binding, then I added a Seam Binding bow to the top with a Glue Dot.
