    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Ramona wants to know: "How do you dry emboss with a stencil?"
    A: There are 2 ways you can dry emboss with stencils. If you just want to use one section of the stencil, you can dry emboss with it the old fashioned way, with a light pad (or a sunlit window) and stylus. Lay down the stencil on the light source, then place the paper or cardstock on top. Use a stylus to press the paper into the stencil openings just where you want the design to appear. If you want to emboss the full stencil design, you can use your die cutting machine. You'll need a silicone pad for this. Lay down the pad first, then the paper, with the stencil on top. Place a cutting pad over the sandwich (or shims as needed), and run it through your die cutting machine.
     
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Olivia loves the Bouncing Brayer technique: "Beautiful technique with so many possibilities - flowers, fireworks, water, dreamy haze, fire, and more. By just altering the colors, you can create so many other theme feels of the card."
