Kasiercraft Tuesday Tip - Embossing Folder Techniques

Hi Everyone,

Kaisercraft have just released a fab range of  Embossing Folders, so I thought I would share a couple of effective techniques that I love to use, created with an embossing folder and a couple of mediums.

Alison Bevis recently shared quite a few embossing folder techniques using your cuttlebug, but with these 2 techniques all you need is an embossing folder, cardstock and mist or texture paste.

Misting Technique

For this first technique, you will need – embossing folder, mist, and cardstock.

1  Spray one side of your embossing folder with mist
2.  Use it like a stamp and press the folder onto your cardstock. Make sure you press all over the folder and hold it down for 10-20 seconds to allow the mist to absorb into your cardstock.
3.  Lift off and you have a gorgeous watercolour image.

Texture Paste Technique

On the second technique you will need an embossing folder, water mister, texture paste, cardstock and mist. I was shown this fab technique by the lovely and talented Kim Ewins.

1.  Apply a coat of texture paste to your cardstock, then allow to sit for 5-10 mins, as you don’t want it too wet.
2.  Lightly spray one side of your embossing folder with water mister, then press down firmly, all over your embossing folder.
3.  Lift off gently. Make sure you wash your embossing folder straight away, as if the texture paste dries, your embossing folder will be ruined.
4.  Allow to dry, then mist over the top, to show off your embossed image.

You can play around with both sides of the embossing folder with these techniques, for a positive and negative image.

Have fun.

  4. Brilliant techniques...my embossing folders are a bit neglected, this will put them back in use ;)

  5. I have come back for another look.. brilliant use of the folders, what a great result!!

  6. I knew both of these techniques....but it's funny, you sort of learn 'em, use 'em a couple of times....then they get forgotten! So THANK YOU for reminding me of them. I especially love the two tone colours with the texture paste. Looks fabulous:):)
