Fall Blog Hop with Embossing Folder

Blog Hop Time 😘Anything and Everything Fall! Where did you Fall from?

I hope you are not Falling like my craft room! I am remodeling my craft space and it is a MADNESS over here! I can’t believe how many junk I have been collecting over the pass 2 DECADES! This will be the best time to do a Fall Cleaning before the holiday.  I will share more when the remodeling is done!

This month I want to focus on one thing and I pick a simple embossing folder (EF), Changing Season EF, to share with you all. 3 ways to use the Embossing Folder for 4 Falling Fall Cards (try to say it very fast, 😝)

1st Falling Way: Classic Embossing

We all know embossing folder is usually affordable, easy to use, and great way to add texture on the card. I simply emboss the card base directly and add a few magic touch to finish one quick Fall Card. I think we all get this one. The trick is precut, score, and run the cardstock through the machine. You can use masking tape to position the card to avoid shifting during embossing.

List of Supply: 4 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ card base, Changing Season EF, Pumpkin Bread Cardstock (CS-0098)Hazelnut Blend cardstock, Pretty Leaves Die Set (Host Exclusives, message me for details), Corrugated Stock (3″ x 1″), Fashion Gold, Gold Friendship Sequins, Boho Trim, Oatmeal Cookies Cardstock, Hello Fall Stamp Set, Gold Silk, Bronze Silk

Another trick is to emboss a few different color cardstocks and then trim them into strips.  You can get few cards done in one go!   I rearrange the strips and pop them out with foam squares. I also apply the Copper PanPastel to add a shimmy look.

You can add PanPastel to the natural twine to match the background too.  I used Copper Embossing Powder to heat set “Hello Fall” sentiment on vellum.

List of Supply: A2 Top Fold card base, Changing Season EF, Whip Cream Cardstock, Grape Fusion Cardstock, Raspberry Berry Cardstock, Journey Vellum, Copper PanPastel, Natural Twine, Foam Squares, Clear Pigment Ink Pad, Copper Embossing Powder, Journey Craft Glue  Hello Fall Bundle

2nd Falling Way: Water Color Embossing

I call this a mini mixed media card! I used FSJ color splash A2 cardstock, liquid color and FSJ Gold Leaf Foil.

I added tiny drops of water color directly on top of the EF, then mist it with water.  MAKE sure apply water color on the side that has “FSJ” logo so it will pick up the color better.  I use a clean paint brush to blend and even out the color. img_8249  img_8250

Carefully place the water splash cardstock inside the EF, use masking tape if needed.

I flick some sparkle silk and use heat gun to dry it.  Once dried, trim it to fit in A2 Cardbase.  I use FSJ Craft Glue and randomly adhere the FSJ Gold Leaf Foil.  Make sure your hand is clean, dry and dust free.  Leaf Foil can be pretty messy if you don’t handle them correctly.  This leaf foil can also easily fly around!  A clean brush comes in handy as you pad the leaf down to the cardstock.  Let it dry and use the clean brush to brush off the extra leaf foil.
img_8252I add a drop of Lavender liquid Color on the clear block so I can add some details directly on the embossed images. Again, randomly add on the branches will do the magic.

Lastly, die cut 4 “fall” from Snapshot Frames Die Cut and glue them together with craft glue.  Once dry, place clean pigment ink pad on top and heat set it with Gold Embossing Powder. Make sure don’t burn your fingers!!! Die cut a leaf from Snapshot Frames Die Cut, apply little clear pigment, sprinkle gold embossing powder, and heat set it.

3rd Falling Way: Use it as a background Stamp

I highly recommend you to try this last, as it may require little more clean up than the first 2 methods.  Simply use the EF as a background stamp. I use Hazelnut Blend and ink the entire folder (the side without the FSJ logo). Make sure add tons of ink! Also carefully place your cardstock on top and really give even pressure to pick up all ink.

I die cut a circle (2nd largest Circle from Journey Circle) and use PanPastel to create a background.  I stamp the Turkey with clear pigment ink pad and heat set with “Clear Embossing Powder”.  Let it completely cool down, then heat emboss the “give Thanks” sentiment with Copper Embossing Powder. I also use Copper PanPastel to edge around the cardbase. Then I pop the turkey circle on top of the Doily Die.
