    Beate Johns answers your technique questions
    Q: Karen asked: "I read somewhere that you could ink a Cuttlebug™ embossing folder so your embossed image comes out colored. How do you do that?"
    A: This technique was one of our technique challenges a while back and you can find the instructions here along with many samples. Basically, you apply the ink of your choice to the side of an embossing folder and then add your paper and emboss. It's a great way to add color and dimension with one pass through your machine.

    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Karen has a variation to the Striped Wipe tutorial: "The variation of the technique I have might be helpful for messy people like me keep ink off their fingers and it also can be used in place of a spectrum pad. Fold the baby wipe the same way but lay it over the flat end of a stamp pad, then add the reinker or use a marker to scribble the ink on in the same fashion as a spectrum pad is laid out. Then use it to swipe across the card."
