linen embossing folder?
Hi! I have seen several examples that use the Linen embossing folder and they say it is from stampin up. I can't find it in the catolog anywhere! Can anyone tell me where it is or if it was discontinued and I missed it?

Thanks Bunches! Melinda

Hi Melinda,

I know years ago Stampin' Up made a Linen Background stamp, but I'm not familiar with a Linen embossing folder. I checked to see if it was one of their texturz plates, but apparently not.

Sorry I couldn't be of assistance.

Thanks! I don't remember ever seeing one either!

The SU Embossing Folder that comes closest to looking like linen is the Square Lattice one, but I haven't seen any that are actually called Linen. PTI has a Linen and Canvas Impression Plate, could that be it? Sorry I can't be of much help, either.

thanks everyone. I decided just to go with the Square Lattice one. Maybe someday I will just happen to run across the other one. I am thinking they may have stated the wrong thing in the magazine but now I can't find where I saw it! Have a great week!

Hi Melinda,

You should post your creations. I don't see that you have a gallery here on SCS.

I found this on Google...Papertrey Ink has a linen impression plate. It's about 1/3 of the way down.

Oh my. I wish I hadn't followed that link (Papertrey Ink) there are quite a few gorgeous embossing folders

Here's the new link from Papertrey Ink to their impression plates: https://www.papertreyink.com/papertr...ession-plates/.

I have been looking for a linen ef, too, but I am hesitant about ordering from this company.

Just wanted to say, PTI doesn't sell embossing folders, they sell Impression Plates - they are double sided pieces of steel, and require the use of their Embossing Pad kit (or perhaps you can come up with a sandwich using the Spellbinders Tan Mat, but I find it is too thick for my CuttleBug). Most of the Impression Plates work quite well, and as the name implies, they actually impress the design into the cardstock, versus creating a raised design as the Embossing Folders do. There are, however, some plates to watch out for - for example, the Sunrise Impression Plate & the Guidelines Impression Plate; the designs on both sides are fairly 'open' designs, and because of that the backing design seems to wind up showing through on the opposite side of the plate. I've had to return my Guidelines plate, as both designs were impressing at the same time, however PTI immediately shipped me a new one and were great about it. (Of course, that was also within the US.)

Mheartm, I'm curious about your hesitation to order from PTI? I have ordered from them in the past, but it has been a year or more. Has something changed with the company?

PTI Linen Plate
I am also curious about PTI concerns, having been very happy with the company ...as my supplies reflect ;)

I had heard the hubbub regarding this company, but I have had absolutely no problems with getting my orders quickly and accurately. They have just updated their website, so it's easier to browse. (They also have great stamp sets with matching dies--just to enable a little bit.) I also have their linen impression plate and I think that's the only place it's available.

Quickutz has a 2-pack of embossing folders. One is named Woven if it's the irregular nibs and slubs texture you want. I don't have this EF so can't tell you how it looks 'in real life'.

There are several threads on the poor service from PTI in the General Forum. I used to place large orders with them often but have totally quit ordering from them. I love their stuff but just don't want to take a chance.

Check out the Sizzix plaid embossing folder that comes with the snoflakes set. It looks like linen.

I have never, ever had any problems ordering from PTI.

I have the canvas/linen impression plate from PTI and use it a lot. Below I linked to a card that uses it so you can see if it's the one you saw elsewhere. I've never been sure which side is canvas and which is linen, honestly. I think this is the linen side. It's the one I use most.

Impression plates create a more subtle effect than EFs and sometimes that's a good thing. You'll see the canvas/linen on the full BG in Pool Party CS, and you can compare it to the strip of Pool Party running across the card that I did in the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots EF. Much more subdued effect.

You do need to get the rubber mat set to use the impression plates. PTI sells it.
