It’s no secret that I love my embossing folders.  Well in playing around with them today, I tried something that was (at least for me) something new.  I created a quick tutorial to show you what I did.  But first here’s the card I made.

This card fits into a couple of different challenges out there in blogland this week.  First is the Sketch Challenge over at Waltzing Mouse Stamps.  The butterfly was made with one of the tree images from their “Teeny Trees” set.  The other challenge can be found at Our Creative Corner.  The challenge is called “All the B’s”.  There are four elements that must be included on your project: Black, Bling, Buttons and Bows.

The black and bow elements are obvious, the bling includes lots of brads and frame anchors and the buttons are the leaves.  I clipped off the plastic loop on the back of the buttons to allow them to lay flat on the card.

Now to the embossed kissing thing that was so fun!  I started with a couple of different inks, a solid image stamp and Cuttlebug’s Textile Embossing Folder.

I inked up a small area of the embossing folder with the darker of the two inks, Memento’s Tuxedo Black.

Then after inking the solid image stamp with the lighter ink (in this case SU’s Really Rust), I stamped (kissed) it directly onto the inked area of the embossing folder.

Here is the result.

Then I immediately stamped it onto the cardstock.

The entire process was repeated until I had a butterfly.  It could have just as easily been a large blossom or even a funky tree!

I can hardly wait to try this with some of my other embossing folders!

Thanks for dropping by today.  Happy Crafting!
