Today’s card uses the Inked Embossing Folder Technique. We’ll be creating this card in classes this month but I thought I’d share it here as well! (Come to class if you want to recreate it easily LOL!).

yamstamps inked embossing folder technique card

I love this effect! For this card, we tapped the Balmy Blue ink pad onto the inner surface of the Country Floral Dynamic Embossing Folder. (A Sale-a-Bration Level 1 reward – you can select it for free with a $60CAD product order!). Tap onto the side with the Stampin’ Up! logo. Once there’s an even coating of ink, place your cardstock inside and run it through the Big Shot – don’t forget the special sandwich for these extra thick folders – Regular Platform, folder with cardstock inside, top Plastic Cutting Plate only.

Clean up for this inked embossing folder technique is also super easy – I just run the folder under the tap and pat dry with a paper towel. Stampin’ Up!’s inks are dye based so they’re water soluble.

The sentiment is from Flourishing Phrases (available in red rubber clear mount or red rubber wood mount), and it’s punched out with the new Story Label punch which is available for purchase during March as part of the Sale-a-Bration Coordination product suite. We used a sponge dauber to add a bit of Balmy Blue ink around the edges of the label. I am using up some of the Organdy Ribbon I had from my earlier Sale-a-Bration order – because if you blinked….it’s gone again! I think everybody who had been waiting on it jumped in to order and it’s unavailable once again in North America (this time gone for good).

However – there are LOTS of new regular catalogue items available to select for free as well as the original offerings (other than the ribbons, obviously…). You can go to the YamStamps Online Stampin’ Up! Canada store and check out the Sale-a-Bration options currently available. Remember that we are now into the “March 31 or while supplies last” phase of Sale-a-Bration. I shared a strategy for planning out your Sale-a-Bration redemptions on the YamStamps Facebook page a while back. Stampin’ Up! manufactures their own stamps in the US, so they are better able to quickly deal with varying levels of demand for stamp sets, but the accessories and tools tend to be sourced from outside the US and so are often affected by shipping times.

In the meantime, we will continue to Sale-a-Brate until the end of March! Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, or need assistance placing your order. Comments are working again, too, so feel free to leave a comment for me!
