Today is all about sharing some tips for embossing folders that will help you have success + SIP cards that are super cute!  Now, today’s tips for embossing folders is focused specifically on the 3D folders. Oh, and I’ve also got a little bit about blender pens in today’s tutorial too!  A lot to learn and lots of tips in the video!


One of my HAPPY PLACES is the ocean, and this stamp set just puts a smile on my face!  I love that it has some great all occasion greetings and you can make some quick and easy cards.  It’s also perfect for SIP CARDS–stamps, ink and paper!

All You Need is a SIP

One of my favorite ways to teach people to stamp is using the SIP METHOD:  stamps, ink & paper!  That is all you truly need to make cards.  Don’t get overwhelmed thinking you need “everything” and that cards are going to take you “forever” to make!  Start SIMPLE–with just a SIP!

And then, it’s super easy to just step it up a bit.  Add a little more Cardstock, maybe a punch, some ribbon….  Make sure to watch today’s video where I show you a SIP CARD plus how to STEP IT UP.

Tips for Embossing Folders & Using those 3D Folders

Today’s video is filled with tips for embossing folders of the 3D variety.  These are NEW in the catalog, and replace the DYNAMIC embossing folders we used to carry.  You have to make your embossing “sandwich” a little different!

Tips for Embossing Folders (the 3D Folders that is) You Need to Know

In the video I talked about using a “shim.”  I have been able to shim mine using the Craft Silicone Mat.  The easiest, and most reliable method is the new 3D EMBOSSING FOLDER PLATE.  When you use this with the Big Shot, you start with the Platform, then the 3D Embossing Folder (w/cardstock inside) and then this plate on top.  It replaces the clear cutting plate.


I recently sent out an EMAIL to all of my customers with a ton of information about the 3D Embossing Folders and how to use them.  If you are NOT on my email list and would like to view this email, CLICK HERE
