So this past Tuesday night was my Live Catalog Tour and I totally forgot to show you the New Textured Impressions Embossing Folders. So I thought I’d show you the folders today or at least some of them.
Do you remember the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder from the Holiday Catalog?
Well if you don’t remember it or never got it; it is probably because you missed it in the catalog or because it just didn’t show up very well in the sample that Stampin’ Up! used in the catalog.
So I thought I would brayer ink onto the New Textured Impressions Embossing Folders from this new catalog so you can SEE the patterns.
This is the New Festive 6 X 6 Folder
This is the New Seaside 6 x 6 Folder
This is the New Sparkle Folder
This is the New Petal Burst Folder
This is the New Holly Folder
If you would like to purchase any of these folders just click on the picture below:
I hope that helps you to see all these new fun prints.

First off I just want to ask for some prayers for today. My new son-in-law is being deployed this morning. I am flying home from Orlando tomorrow and my husband is now in North Carolina seeing Zach off and then he and our daughter will be driving back to Michigan. Dean and my other 2 boys are all home holding down the fort.
This is my last day in Orlando and I’m hoping to spend some time by the pool getting some last minute sunshine before heading back to cold snowy Michigan tomorrow morning.

Here are the cards I made and have already sent out in the mail with checks enclosed.
I did the embossed resists technique on these cards and a great stamp set for this technique is the soon to be retired Upsy Daisy stamp set. This set is great for a variety of techniques. I’m going to miss this set!
Here are the 2 different DSP backgrounds same technique:
The DSP I used on both cards is from Berry Blossoms #122350 $10.95 also on the Retired Accessories list.
This technique is very simple to do. Take a piece of Whisper White card stock and stamp a solid image using Versamark ink; cover with White Embossing powder or clear and heat set. Next brayer you desired ink color over the top (on these 2 cards I used Calypso Coral). After brayering the ink over the top; take a tissue or paper towel and wipe off the excess ink from the embossed image. The embossing resists the ink. Very Cool!
Last night in my Card Club we did different techniques using embossing. This was one of the cards they did. It is the Multi-Color Embossing technique. We stamped the flower from the Mixed Bunch stamp set #125535 $27.95 wood or #125537 $21.95 clear using Versamark ink and then put the Tempting Turquoise embossing powder and the Tangerine Tango embossing powders on and heat set. We then added the Fabric brad 125589 $6.95 from the Summer Smooches collection. These brads are going to be gone soon and not available in the new catalog so now is the time to get them. The DSP was from the Summer Smooches DSP 125409 $10.95 collection as well. This card is very striking in person and was a favorite at the class.
Tomorrow is the big Graduation Open House.? We’ve been busy cleaning the barn, buying the food, getting picture boards ready and planning the Big Event.? I can’t wait until it’s over!? I am not a party planning person, I’ve been dreading this event for months and will be glad when it is over.? I tried to talk my daughter into taking the money like my oldest son did but no such luck.? I’ll post pictures of the event on Monday.
As I was cleaning off my tables in my stamp room getting ready to move them out to the barn I came across an old graduation card using the mini envelopes and thought PERFECT!? (I saw this card done by Dawn Griffith a couple of years ago on her blog.)? I need to make up a bunch of graduation cards and this card is just the thing I need; cute, quick and easy plus holds a check or cash. 🙂
Here is the card:
I also did a video tutorial on how to make this card PLUS I show you how to emboss with the Craft Black ink and the Black embossing powder; continuing on with my Basic Embossing techniques.
I hope you have enjoyed this embossing video and the little money holder.? You?can turn this little money holder into a Wedding card/money holder too just by changing up the stamp set.? It works perfect for any occasion just by changing the stamp set and colors.
Also, here is some more information regarding the differences between Craft Ink and Classic Ink.? This was a question asked by a new recruit of mine.
Classic Stampin’ Ink is a water-based dye that dries quickly but may fade over time and run if it gets wet.? (However, Basic Black and Basic Brown Classic Stampin’ Ink are waterproof and won’t bleed when wet.)? I still prefer to use the Black Stazon Ink though when I am watercoloring.? Classic ink is ideal for cards and projects because it dries quickly.
Craft Stampin’ Ink is a pigment ink that is thicker and takes longer to dry.? It provides brighter, longer-lasting color and is therefore recommended for scrapbooking and crafts.? Because it is thicker and dries more slowly, it is also perfect for embossing because the embossing powder can absorb the ink.
