Hi! Welcome to my blog! There are so many wonderful 3D embossing folders being released today! I am posting about 4 of them plus a bonus!
I really like this embossing folder! I made this card left handed, so please excuse the messy part. I like how there is 1 leaf that is prominent. It was begging to be highlighted, so that is what I did.
I used an ink pad to bring out the high points of the embossing folder and then I used the Artist Marker to highlight the main leaf. (Sorry, I forget what color I used.)
I added the sentiment, and then the card was done after being added to a black card base.
This card is very vibrant because of the highly pigmented Watercolor Brush Markers.
After swiping Altenew’s Antique Gold Pigment ink pad over the raised edges of the Mariposa embossing folder, I colored the butterfly with the Watercolor Brush Markers in Citrus Burst, Crimson, and Ultraviolet. It’s an easy way to make a cheery card.
I added the sentiment, and the card front onto a black card base.
I swiped the raised edges with a red and yellow ink pad (sorry, can’t remember the specific colors; this was post surgery). Then I fussy cut around the image and added it to a blue card panel. I added the sentiment and the black card base.
Having to use my non-dominant hand was a challenge and a great learning experience!
This was one of my favorites from the release. I love that the coloring stencil is also available.
I like the built-in background in the embossing folder. It adds charm to the floral image.
The process for this card was very simple. I laid the stencil aver the embossed image and colored the flowers using a Mini Blending Brush. Then I moved the stencil and colored the leaves.
I used the gold Must-Have-Gel Pen to add extra dimension to the floral images.
I added some shading around the embossed image. I wasn’t very happy with the result, but I couldn’t redo it because I had just had my 2nd hand surgery. My hand is still healing, but it’s doing quite well.
I added the sentiment and 3 Antique Gold Sequins. Done.
There’s a bonus card at the end of my post today!
