Using solid stamps and embossing folders, get a unique and interesting look every time.
- Solid Image Stamp (Waltzingmouse "Teeny Trees" used here)
- Embossing Folder (Provocraft "Victoria" used here)
- Neutral cardstock
Apply ink to the solid image stamp.
Apply ink to the inside of the embossing folder. You can use either the positive (raised) or negative (grooved) side of the folder. (The negative side of the embossing folder was used here.)
Using quite a bit of pressure, press the inked solid image stamp onto the inked embossing folder. Pull it straight up to remove.
Stamp image on cardstock, again using quite a bit of pressure to transfer as much ink as possible onto the paper.
Finish your project.
Be sure to try both the positive and negative sides of the embossing folders for different looks!
Try inking up the solid stamp only and then pressing it onto a clean embossing folder. This gives another interesting look.
Ink up the solid stamp with more than one color of ink and get yet another unique look.
