Default Leaving out part of an embossing folder

I don't know the correct term for this (embossing fade?), but I've seen tutorials and videos on how to leave part of an embossed background "unembossed." I looked on YouTube, but the videos I found were too much talk and not exactly easy to follow. Could someone point me to a tutorial/video here? If there isn't one here, could you point me to one somewhere else? Thanks for the help!

Here's one using the Tim Holtz embossing diffuser: Embossing Diffuser.wmv - YouTube
You use the diffuser in place of one of the cutting plates in your sandwich.

Thank you, Meg. I'll watch that one when I get home tonight. Is there a way to make your own diffuser? I remember reading or watching a video about that. Thanks again for your help.

Yes, you can make your own diffuser. The toughest part is finding the right thickness that will allow the part of the folder to emboss that you want while ensuring the part you don't want doesn't get embossed. You can use some chipboard or the back of the pkg from designer series paper or other items to try. Another thing some people do is use lil wooden frames from Michael's. They sell rectangular frames that have oval, square, and circular openings and those typically work for this technique and they are quite affordble. The frames are made of thin wood.

Great! I'll give that a try. Thanks again.

Here is a great set of embossing frames by Darice that allow you to leave parts of your paper plain while using your embossing folders. I have these and use them a lot:

Madame, I am always happy to help a fellow stamper in need.

I love 123 Stitch. They have a good selection of all kinds of stamps and accessories, and their shipping is more reasonable than a lot of places. I've ordered from them quite a bit.

I also crochet for a hobby, and that's how I got on their mailing list. But their stamping stuff is great, too.

You are welcome. I know there are other ways to do this, but those little frames are very convenient and work so well.

Beate has a tutorial in Resources: Splitcoaststampers - Tutorials
I couldn't ever get it to work with my old Wizard, and I tried several times ~ but with the Big Shot I've never had any problems.

Thanks for the link Sabrina. I didn't know the framelits would cut out a piece of cardboard. That gives us all kinds of options.

You can also use the same technique to cut out only part of a framelit like in this pop up tree. It's made with SU's label framelits but instead of cutting out the whole label it only cut where the cardboard template was.

I was at Joann's today looking for something and I found the frames that Bugga linked. I think they are $15.99 but I was able to use a 50% off one item coupon for them. I'm going to try them out after dinner. So excited!

Hooray! Glad you found them at a store and could use a coupon. Have fun!

ACMoore carries these for $12.99. They are hanging with the Darice embossing folders. I've been closing my eyes when I walk by that wall!!

We have a tutorial for it in the tutorial section. We called it

Double Embossing

The hardest thing is to get the right thickness for the cardboard for the technique to work.

Yep, that's the one Sabrina linked. It's great! Beate, what thickness do you recommend: closer to chipboard or heavy cardstock?

If you want to make your own, you can layer several pieces of cardstock and that way, you can test it until you get to a thickness that works. I believe 5 is what I've seen recommended. I think the trickiest part might be getting the opening in the same place in each layer so if I was making one, I'd make a template first.
