A Little Birdie Told Me TLC837 ~ Embossing Folder is the Star!! ~ 03/08/2021

Welcome to the second Monday of the month! We will revisit Natasha Foote, who experiments with techniques that we can all do. She is a very frugal stamper and likes to get a lot of bang for her New Zealand buck. Here is her video:

Making an embossing folder the main feature


Playing with embossing folders is not new and neither is what she does with the media she uses. The goal is to use those embossing folders in a different way. We've all used them for backgrounds that are very much 'in the background' or we've brought them forward with different products that highlight their designs. Today, go another step forward, making that embossing folder the highlight of your card. Cut around a design, choose specific parts of the folder that will make a statement. I loved the folder she used so much, I ordered it (not arrived yet). Can't wait to see what you come up with! Go wild! Go crazy! Have fun! Use more than one folder, if you like.

Here's a link to our TLC837 Embossing Folder is the Star!!! gallery


I made three cards. Here's my favorite:
Roses and Sunshine for Her by jkanack

Remember to use the keyword TLC837 when you are uploading. It's helpful if you come back and leave a link on this thread, especially in case you made a typo and people may not find your card.

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.

I'm impressed with how stunning all these cards are! What a great technique, and Natasha cards are very inspirational. Thanks for this challenge.

I've got 2 cards to share. The first one was my "lesson learned" about the type of ink pad might work best for me.
Card #1 = Thanks
Card #2 = Birthday Wishes
I do believe I will try this again!

This was a fun technique. I think I'd like to try navy next time. I sure need more practice, but I was encouraged. Here's my card.

Fun technique. I need more folders that have finer patterns to keep the ink from going down onto the BG.
But here is my Embossed Christmas.

I had a lot of fun with this, Jean, thank you for the challenge. I had too many embossing folders that I wanted to try, so I have four cards to share:

Embossed Sympathy

Happy Birthday

Mandala Sympathy

Musical Rainbow

(I know, I need help coming up with fun card titles!)

Another card! I am loving this technique! Used Nuvo Simmer Powders. Wish the photo showed the shimmer in the background & dragonflies! TFL!
