Let’s Ride!

One Wild RideDo you ride or know someone who does?  Here is a fun motorcycle card for anyone who rides.  One of my downline, Kim, designed this for a stamp camp she participated in that I attended.

Isn’t this card fun?  My favorite part is the Silver Foil embossed with the Hexagons 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Wow!  That’s a mouthful.  That’s the official name….I just call it the Hexagons Embossing Folder…so much easier!

Right now you will find this embossing folder in the Occasions Catalog but I’ll let you in on a little secret….you’ll also find it in the new upcoming 2017-2018 Annual Catalog along with 4 other 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folders including the Cable Knit one from this past Holiday Catalog.  Fun stuff!

It is Technique Tuesday so let me give you some tips on using these fun folders.  First of all, when you run them through your Big Shot you don’t need a bottom Standard Cutting Pad.  The folder is so thick you only need to use the top one.  This second tip will give you a really deep, dimensional embossed impression when used with regular cardstock:  before you place your card stock in the embossing folder lightly spritz it with water.  Try running your folder through the Big Shot with and without spritzing the card stock.  You’ll be amazed!

Well, enough chit-chat for today….my parents arrive tomorrow for my son’s college graduation so I guess I better get ready.  Yikes!  Then on Thursday evening my older son and his wife arrive.  We’ll have a houseful for a couple of days but it should be fun!

Have a great day!  Take care and Happy Stamping!
