Dry Embossing for Handmade Cards with Stampin' Up! Products

Handmade-card-ribbon-of-courageStampin' Up! offers some great products  for dry embossing on your handmade cards.  As seen above, the embossing is subtle but adds that special something to make this simple card so pretty!

This embossing is created with the Petal Pair Embossing Folders which are in the Occasions Catalog but you can also earn them for FREE with a qualifying purchase of $50!  I think it makes a beautiful background for these products from the Ribbon of Courage Bundle available in wood mount or clear mount stamps.  That one sweet sentiment surrounded by pretty elements is so special.  Use your tools and dies to make your creations pop!

Let's take a look at the video tutorial below to see how it all comes together.

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Play with color.  I usually take my lead on color combos with designer paper.  No designer paper here!  I just went for a color I loved (Pool Party) and found another that would be a contrast yet be pleasing to my eye. Note that I said pleasing to "my eye".  That's what's important.  If you like it, go for it!
  • As mentioned in the video, often times I will die cut shapes in "bulk" in Whisper White then sponge with the color that I need when creating.  Let me tell you...that can be a real time saver.  Give it a try and let me know how it works for you.

Handmade-card-dry-embossingI love hearing from you so I have a question...What two colors would you use if your were making this card?  Leave a comment below and let's see how many different combinations we can get! I'll be looking forward to your responses and it will be inspiration for all of us.

Thanks for tuning in for today's Stampin' Up! card idea with dry embossing and I'll see you again soon!
