Totally Techniques – Inking on Embossing Folders

Welcome to the Totally Techniques Blog Hop! I’m Lynsay Mahon, from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Each month our team chooses a technique to feature, and each person showcases their take on it! It’s a fun way to see different creative twists on techniques!

This month’s technique is “inking on embossing folders.” This technique is exactly what it sounds! Take your ink, press it into one side of the embossing folder, and run it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (the big boss!), so that when it makes the impression, it leaves the ink with it!

I chose one of my all time favourite embossing folders: the Old World 3D Embossing Folder. I used Coastal Cabana ink on the folder and pressed it into the coordinating cardstock so that I could create the feel of water!

I used Just Jade ink to add the seaweed stamp and the fish. I wanted to create the feel of bubbles, so I used the bubble stamp with Whisper White Craft Ink and Coastal Cabana. I also used the Frost White Shimmer Paint and a stylist to add small drops of paint to add textured bubbles.

The turtle comes from the Whale of a Time 6×6″ Designer Series Paper. I fussy cut two out, one to pop up the shell.

I’ve been on a bit of a Coastal Cabana and Just Jade kick recently!! I love this colour combo!
