How To Emboss Only One Part Of A Card | Card Making Tutorial with Ink It Up With Jessica

Christmas thank you card! The colors say "Christmas", the layout is fun and it's quick and easy to put together.


Eeek! I'm SO EXCITED to share this amazing die cutting tip with you, I can hardly stand it!! First I'll share my card for another Functional Friday installment. In case you missed this post, I'm featuring one die from Top Dog Dies each month, and each Friday I'm sharing a different way to use the die. My hope is that even if you don't own that exact die, the ideas will translate to similar dies you do own. This technique uses the tiny dies cuts as embellishments. Think of them like sequins…

3D embossing folder faux cast iron

Tim Holtz and Sizzix came with a product that takes dry embossing to a whole new level. The 3D embossing folders. They just beg for some experimenting. In the Tim Holtz Addicts group on Facebook, a lady shared a technique that just caught my eye. I made a card the other day and I fell in love. So I tried it again, only slightly different. On the first card I made, using this technique, I used a finger dabber for the oxides and I used gilding wax. In this tutorial I used my finger for the…

I didn't use the bottom B plate. I put the folder and cardstock directly on top of plate A. I placed the craft stick on top of the border and topped that off with plate B. Theyre covering the design, but are well inside the edges of the folders. Thats the important part. No pressure on the edges means no folder lines.

Preventing folder lines - Cuttlebug Users

Yesterday I experimented with eliminating border folder lines using my Big Shot. I thought that the same thing could be done using the Cuttlebug. Here's what worked for me and my machine. Keep in mind that machines can vary and some rollers are "tighter" than others, so if a "sandwich" is not rolling through easily, don't force it. You don't want to end up with a broken Cuttlebug. Just try a thinner sandwich. The usual combo for using embossing folders is: plate A, plate B, cardstock inside…

Stamping on Embossing Folders

Hello stampers and Happy New Year! Today I am sharing a cool technique that involves inking up your embossing folders and stamping on them before running them through the Big Shot. I shared a video last week on how to do this and it was a big hit. Today I thought I would also talk you through the steps of doing this and show you a few pictures of several variations. Here is what you need: I found that these colours worked together really well. First you ink up the entire Woodland embossing…

Card made using Crafter's Companion Ornate lace embossing folder

At my last ACTSA (ACT Stamp Artists) meeting I bought the Crafter's Companion Ornate Lace embossing folder and I made this card. I also used Tim Holtz Victorian Velvet ink pad with a mini blending tool, Goldfinger vintage gold, the Hunkydory die from my free kit I have been playing with, spellbinders nesting die, coffee archival ink and some bling along with white and gold card. Oh and I think the stamp set was from stampendous..

Weird Science - Vintage Stamped Metallic Embossing

Weird Science is a really cool steam punk anatomy set of stamps. Although part of the 2019 Halloween stamp release by Tim Holtz and Stampers Anonymous, it can be used all year round. I decided to pull out one of my favorite techniques for this card, the Vintage Stamped Metallic Embossing. I've done this on at least one card a year but usually on the Ideaology Gold and Silver Metallic Kraftstock. This time I wanted to try the Copper Kraftstock from the Ideaolgy Metallic 2 Stash that has…
