Stamping with the STARS #413: Embossing Folder Sanding Technique

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Stamping with the STARS Inspiration Hop #DOswts413.  This week we're happy to share Embossing Folder Inspiration with you.

I wanted to share some sort of embossing folder technique for my card today.  What came to mind is sanding pattern paper.  Our Designer Series Paper has a white center.  Making it a the perfect choice for this technique, letting the white core come through.

Surprisingly, I choose the Bright & Beautiful 6x6 Designer Series Paper.  The patterns, on what I call the "back side" are full of excellent choices for this type of card.  I paired it with the beautiful Elegant Eucalyptus 3D Embossing Folder.  In addition, I totally CASEd (copy and share everything) the layout from a card found on page 102 of the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog (a great place for inspiration).

DOstamping Tips:

  • Use Elegant Eucalyptus 3D Embossing Folder to add texture to 3" x 5-1/2" Designer Series Paper (DSP). 
    • Place the DSP into the folder with the pattern you want to use face up.
    • These folders work great with the Mini Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine. 
    • Be sure to use plate 1 & 3.
  • Remove DSP from folder and sand the raised images.  Use a crafting sanding block or fine grit sand paper.
    • I recommend starting with gentle pressure, then increase pressure as needed.
