Default TLC570 ~ Dry Embossing with Stencils ~ {01/25/2016}

Happy Monday, everybody! It's my first challenge of the new year.
I'm sure that most of us, by now, have at least one stencil in our stash, so this is your chance to put it to a new use; we are going to stretch our stencils and Dry Emboss with Stencils.


Looking on YouTube I found several different sandwich possibilities.
For the Big Shot, you can use any of the following.
Base platform, Tab 1, regular cutting pad, thin mouse mat, stencil, cardstock, thin mouse mat, regular cutting pad.

If you have the Sizzix Impression pad, you can use the following sandwich in the Big Shot:
Base platform, Tab 1, regular cutting pad, silicone shim, stencil, cardstock, Impression pad.

Another option, this worked really well for me, was the following:
Base platform, Tabs 1 and 2, cutting pad, a piece of felt larger than your card, card, stencil, and second cutting pad.

For a Cuttlebug:
A plate, stencil, paper, silicone shim, cardstock as required for extra shims, 2 B plates. (I don't have a Cuttlebug, so I couldn't verify this one).


An extra option, you can ink your stencil and stamp your card with it as in the Stencil Monoprint tutorial, and then when it is dry you can emboss it with the stencil still in place. This will give a letterpress look, as on my bird tag which I turned into a card. Or you can emboss, and then add colour to the raised area with the stencil still in position.

Notes: I tried with a Dreamweaver's stencil - it embossed very well BUT I felt the stencil was a bit curved afterwards, so do this only at your own risk.
If you don't have any plastic stencils, don't want to risk a metal one and still want to play along - make your own stencil by cutting or punching shapes from a piece of thin cardstock.

Here's a link to our TLC570 Dry Embossing with Stencils gallery


Here are my samples - one with the added monoprint step using felt, one with the Sizzix texture pad.

Remember to use the keyword TLC570 when you are uploading. It's helpful (to the hostesses for sure!) if you come back and leave a link on this thread .


If you're not sure how to link your card on the thread here, here's how:


1. Open 2 windows or tabs: one window for your card and one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Go to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.

Really FABULOUS challenge, Sabrina. It is always a good thing when we can get more mileage from our supplies in a new way. Thanks.

BERRY SWEET

Arrow Alternative Cuttlebug sandwich

Neva mentioned that she had problems with the Cuttlebug sandwich I found. I'm so sorry, Neva.

Here's a link to another one I have found here on SCS:Cuttlebug and Plastic Dry Embossing Stencils?


There's a little more detail in the linked post, but this is what Rebekah used:
A plate, B plate, stencil, paper, rubber, shims, then b plate run through.
Each cuttlebug will use different shims, mine takes 2 for this, also the quality of paper makes a difference, if I use Georgia Pacific, it comes out light, if I use Gina K luxury white, it comes out more pronounced.

Thanks for the video, Sabrina! In looking through my BS supplies, it appears I have both of the extra mats she shows, so looks like I will be able to try this without too much fiddling around with sandwiches - yay! I have meetings today but hope to be back later and have a chance to play with this fun challenge : )

Smile TLC570 Fresh Vegetables

Sabrina- awesome challenge, thanks! I needed something to finish this vegetable card- and your dry embossing idea was just right- added a gingham/twine combo for my embellishment along with some purple washi tape. Here's Fresh Vegetables- dry embossed with a rolling jelly jar on my inked ef.

Well..I will have to try again. I used the sandwich for the Big Shot & it not only shredded the card stock, it broke the plastic stencil into a bunch of little pieces.

Oh my - I am SO sorry that people are having trouble. If I could replace your stencils I surely would. I tested two of the sandwiches for the Big Shot personally before listing them - I didn't have mouse mats to try the first one. And Dina even mentioned this in last week's Weekly Inkling as an extra use for stencils, although not with any sandwich listings.

Sallie has a recommendation that for a better impression, misting lightly with water (and I know some use alcohol) can help.

No worries, Sabrina! Misting is a good idea..I've used it when I'm embossing w/ a plastic canvas (the kind you find in the cross stitch section) & that's what I finally had to resort to here. Those are quite a bit tougher than stencils & also flexible

Now I just have to go make something w/ it.

For my sandwich and my Cuttlebug, I used A plate, B plate, cardstock scrap, rubber shim, cardstock, stencil, two pieces of cardboard, B plate. Not the best, but it was the fourth combination I tried. You have to look closely, but I was able to get some embossing. Here's my card:

Default TLC570 Dry Embossing With Stencils

Sabrina, I enjoyed this challenge and was happy to use an Anna Griffin brass stencil that I've had for years and never used. So thanks, Sabrina!

Here is my card.

Here is my entry! I used a Dreamweaver stencil and though I have successfully used my CB to emboss them I did this one with a light table. TLC570 Sweet Friend by Dockside - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Heart CC567, TLC570 You Warm My Heart

I started out with a dry embossed background, using a Sizzix die with woven lines- added a evergreen and floral wreath- fussy cut to the right size- and added a roses and leaves printed card overlay. For my browns, I used a floral top border of washi tape, and a gold and brown gathered fabric tie/pink button combo. Used green and pink on my left side border, thanks to the floral washi tape I choose. My sentiment comes from a Taylored Expressions kitchen set. Here's You Warm My Heart

Thanks Sabrina, great idea to stretch stencil use. I used my Big Shot to emboss with a Crafters Workshop stencil. Here's mine:

I just ran a plastic stencil through my Cuttlebug using the sandwich Sabrina listed and got a fairly good embossed pattern. I think a lot depends upon the thickness of the stencil, card stock, and shims you use.
