Have you tried a hybrid embossing folder? If not, the perfect bundle to try out is the Stampin' Up! Art in Bloom stamp set, dies, and coordinating hybrid embossing folder. "What is a hybrid embossing folder," you ask? One product, many uses. Use just the dies in the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder to cut images. Or use just the embossing folder to emboss cardstock. Or use them together to cut AND emboss at the same time!
The dies create unique die-cut shapes and paper cut outs with just a quick run through your Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.
The embossing folders add depth and dimension to cardstock Just place flat cardstock in the embossing folder, run it through your Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, and out comes cardstock with a textured design.
For this card, I used the dies and embossing folder, with a splash of ink blending directly on the embossing folder.

Meetup is a service used to organize online groups that host in-person and virtual events for people with similar interests. My vision for this group is to gather crafters together -- online and/or in person (when possible) -- for a fun time creating projects, learning new techniques, and of course, meeting other likeminded crafters. This group is for anyone and everyone, no matter your skill level. This group is open to everyone, globally!
I schedule events for making cards, scrapbooking, gift packaging, and more. I also coordinate my card classes to go via Meetup.
