Embossing Folders, Friends Are Like Seashells, Friendship, General Cards, JOIN STAMPIN’ UP!, Stampin' Up!

Let’s Emboss – Seashells!

I had a little stamping playdate with a good friend yesterday. It was great to just sit and create together. We wanted to test out the Gilded Leafing Embellishment on a piece of cardstock that had been embossed using the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder.   That didn’t go as well as we wanted, so we switched to using it on flowers stamped with the Art Gallery Stamp Set.  I’ll share that in another blog post.  What I want to share today is what I did with two pieces that we had embossed that were left over. D7494869-8BAE-4712-84C3-3CA74154AFA2 This is the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder that I used on the pieces of Seaside Mist Cardstock.   And next to it is the embossed cardstock before I started experimenting.  You can see the embossing on it and let me just say that it looks much better in person than in the picture.  You can actually see the detail better in the first picture. For the first card (on the left above), I used one of the new Blending Brushes and some Misty Moonlight Ink and just rubbed lightly over the top.  The ink picked up the details in the shells a bit more. AC344EED-34AE-4B36-8DB0-95266B61A088 I layered it on to a piece of Basic White Cardstock and then onto a Misty Moonlight Cardstock card base.  I added a little bit of Misty Moonlight and Silver Bakers Twine and added one of the sentiments from the coordinating stamp set, Friends Are Like Seashells. 2EF596A3-AB39-4DDB-A775-F7314FB036DE For the second card, I took an identical piece of Seaside Spray Cardstock that had been embossed with the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder and I used two drops of Frost White Shimmer Paint and a Blending Brush to make this beautiful piece.  I just love this pearlized look!  You can see the shimmer! 46080BC1-7AA7-46F9-8E57-5FE5A0F6C8DB I then made a card identical to the first card I showed up, but substituting the Embossing Folder with the White Shimmer Paint.  Isn’t it stunning?? 44168FFD-5B7E-4CF5-A81D-E550779C3D9C If you would like to make either of these cards, these are the supplies that you will need:
