Dry Embossing with Stencils

Hello Stamping Friends!!

I'm on the Dare 2B Artzy Blog today!!

I'm so super excited to share the fun I have been having with D2BA's new stencils!!  I love each one of them!  You can find them all here!!

For my post today I did a little experimenting to see how I could use these stencils to dry emboss paper!  Yep, NO embossing folder needed!!  Just the fun stencils!!

I'm using a Big Shot, so this may slightly be different between machines, I'm not sure.  But don't be afraid to experiment and have fun!!  That is exactly what I did!

Open the main plate to TAB 1 and place in your Big Shot, add a cutting pad, add your stencil and then paper:

Then add your crease pad and another cutting pad:
Run it through your Big Shot!  
Use those muscles!! 

So easy and fun!!!

I created a sample using each stencil!
Yes, I admit, I did the HAPPY DANCE!

How cool and exciting!!

Now for my card using one of the embossed pieces:
I love it!!

I ended up using the one embossed with the Wild Flower Stencil!!  Each one is fun, but this one worked perfect for my image I decided to use!!

The lovely image is from the Bouquet 4 You stamp set!!
I colored the image in with my Copics and then die cut it out using the coordinating die from the Fresh Picked die set!

So elegant and fun!

Have a beautiful day!

Don't you just love it when you can 'double duty' supplies? Your mother's day card is so pretty and the embossed background is the perfect complement. A tip for you when creating your dry embossed backgrounds this way ... lightly spritzing the cardstock with water before running your sandwich through the Big Shot creates deeper embossing.
