3 ways to use embossing folders with dies

Filed under: Projects — June 16, 2021 @ 2:41 pm

We had a beautiful day yesterday for garage stamping.  I’m easing back to some in-person classes, and this is the first step.  It was so good to craft together in the afternoon.  The morning online class and pdfs are up in my customer Facebook group for everyone who couldn’t come in person.   I still have some class kits available for purchase – contact me through my website.

3 Ways to use embossing folders with dies

  1. Layer a die cut over an embossed card.  In this card from class, we embossed the card front with 3D bark and then adhered the die cut from Simply Succulent.  (Links at bottom of this post).

2. Coordinating Dies and Folders.  There is an extremely popular suite that has a perfectly coordinating die and folder combo:  Sand & Sea.  The Book card below was the Fun Fold from my May Class.  I still have a couple kits left from that class too – contact me through my website to purchase.  For this combo, you die cut the shells first, then run them though the coordinating embossing folder.  So gorgeous, especially using the Pearlescent Paper.


And, last but not least..

3.  Hybrid folders

This is something so new from Stampin’ Up! that I haven’t even tried it yet.  This folder and die combo is actually run through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine at the SAME TIME.  How amazing is that?  Here’s a photo from the new Annual Catalog.

I hope you have fun die cutting AND embossing, and using both these techniques in your projects.

TIP:  The Simply Succulents Bundle is only available at a discount through June 30, 2021.  After that the stamps and dies will still be available separately.

Happy crafting,
Kim Wilson
