Tuesday Stampin' Tips with Tony ~ Embossing Folders and Ink

Hello fellow stampers and Friends~
  It's Tuesday night and that means time for Stampin' Tips from me.  I make it a goal to learn something new every day.
In regard to stamping I am always looking to learn something I don't know and when I do, I love to share it with others.
As if we don't have enough fun projects and techniques, I'm going to show you one that's new to me!

  If you love using embossing folders to add an extra layer of texture to your projects, have you tried inking up the folders and embossing them?  OMGosh, I love it!   I'll post instructions and some photos below, and my video tutorial as well.  Happy Stamping!
God Bless!
Embossing Folders, I used Woodland and Tin Tile 3D in my demo.
CardStock - Whisper White and Very Vanilla or any you want to try.  5 1/4" x 4"
Stamp pad - Cinnamon Cider, Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody
Big Shot or similar

  Open the embossing folder and look closely.  You will notice that one side has part of the design raised and the other side is the opposite image.  I recommend trying them both to see which you prefer then you can make a little mark to remember for future if you have a preference.

-Apply ink from stamp pad either by opening and tamping it over the area, or using a brayer.  Once you have the ink where you want it.  Carefully lay a piece of cardstock over it, and close it so it doesn't move. Run it through the embossing machine and open carefully.  Isn't that amazing?

-  Set that one aside to dry, clean up the embossing folder and try again using the opposite side.

- I like to let them dry for a few minutes before attaching to card base and embellishing.

 Refer to the photos and video and definitely enjoy!
