[Technique] Embossing with Dies by Channin

Hello everyone! It's Channin here and today I’m bringing you an oldie but a goodie, embossing with your dies! Actually, this is a new one for me. Though I’ve know about this technique for years, I have never tried this technique before this video. But after I saw Sunshine’s amazing sample card using the new Stitched Morning Glories stamps and matching dies I knew I had to give this technique a try! Also I share how to embossing with 3 different die cutting machines in the video so hopefully everyone is covered!

[Technique] Embossing with Dies by Channin

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.

First, I stamped the largest morning glory from the Morning Glories Stamp Set on a scrap of white cardstock using partial inking technique to add depth to the image. I used the the acetate that the stamp set comes on to align each stamp layer to achieve perfect alignment of the cross-stitches. Next, I diecut around the flower using the largest hoop in the Embroidery Hoops Die. Then I embossed the stamped morning glory using the matching Stitched Morning Glories Dies and a silicone rubber embossing mat. No matter which die cutting machine you use the silicone rubber mat is essential for this technique. Luckily if you don’t have one already they are fairly inexpensive ($7.00) and readily available.

After I embossed the morning glory I then embossed the front of a top-folding A2 white card base with the beautiful Lacy Panel Die. Next, I diecut the largest hoop again but this time using a woodgrain patterned paper. I then stamped a sentiment from the Planted Stamp Set around the flower by curving the stamps on the MISTI in Versafine Onyx Black ink. Then using scotch tape I adhered the woodgrain frame of the hoop to the stamped inner circle. Next, I adhered craft foam to the back of the hoop and then the hoop onto my white card base with Tombow Mono Multi Liquid glue.

For this card, I stamped the morning glories on a A2 card base and then stamped the sentiment from the Congrats Stamp Set. I then embossing the flowers and sentiment with the matching dies.

And for this last card, I stamped the morning glory then embossed it with the matching dies while I also embossed frame with the Lacy Layers 2 Die and the Patched Layers Die. Lastly, I stamped a sentiment from the Flower Circles Stamp Set in Versafine Onyx Black. I hope you enjoyed, thanks so much for stopping by!
