March 2022 Whimsical Fairy Tale Embossing Folders

Whimsical Fairy Tale Full Release Bundle

Stash Busting Patterned Paper Embossed Frame

I am sure many of you have a stash of patterned paper. I took one of the panels in my stash and embossed it with the Scalloped Frame 3D Embossing Folder. I blacked out the majority of the paper with black ink to bring depth to the embossing folder.

How To Make This Embossed Card

  1. Apply Obsidian Pigment Ink to the ‘text’ side of the Scalloped Frame 3D Embossing Folder. Align the patterned paper and letter press the ink onto the patterned paper.
  2. Die cut the Circled Greetings: Love Die from cream colored cardstock. Use a nesting circle die to cut the window rom the cardstock leaving a stand-alone image.
  3. Glue the die cut sentiment to the center of the embossed frame. Add white splatters with Pure White Ink Spray.

Jewels and Diamonds Gold Embossed Background

The Checkered Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder reminded me of lens flares. I tried to capture that bright and shiny feeling in this card. Like the previous card, this card was easy to recreate with a few inking techniques.

How To Make This Embossed Card

  1. On a watercolor panel, ink smoosh Altenew Mixed Media Ink. I used inks from Red Cosmos and Glacier Caves.
  2. Apply Enchanted Gold Pigment Ink to the embossing folder and letter press the ink onto the watercolored panel.
  3. Die cut the sentiment from gold glitter cardstock. I used one of the sheets from Gilded Glitter Cardstock Set.

Mother’s Day Peony Embossed Card

Die cut inlay technique? How about embossed inlay? After embossing the main peony image, I also embossed the letter dies and overlaid them where the embossing appears in the background.

How To Make This Card

  1. Emboss a white panel of cardstock and use the letterpress ink technique to color the panel with Red Cosmos Mixed Media Inks.
  2. Die cut the MOM sentiment from Caps Bold Alphabet Die Set.
  3. Use the same Red Cosmos Pigment Inks to letterpress the previously die cut letters.
  4. Foam mount the letters using Instant Dimension Foam Tape, overlaying them on top of the coordinating background layer.

  1. Your awesome creations never fail to amaze me! I study them to see how you write what you did to achieve the beautiful results and then still have problems with imaging them in my mind as they are so unique! Wish I lived closer to you so I could actually attend some of your classes in real life, but glad we can view them online! Your projects make me want to buy all the products you used to create them!!


  2. What inspiration! I never would have thought to use black ink like a mask on patterned paper. And using the debossed side to letterpress ink, brilliant!


  3. I’m going to have to get that peony embossing folders. The Altenew 3D embossing folders are my favorites and I have quite a few in my collection now.


  4. I love the first card with the lattice embossing and the ink blending of all the beautiful pastel colors!
