Embossing Tutorial!

Hi There CC Fans!  Welcome back to another fun week on the blog!  We have more fun tutorials to share this week, so let's get the party started with a project and tutorial that Kendra posted on her blog yesterday!

From Kendra's Blog...

It's all about EMBOSSING over on the Crafter's Companion Challenge Blog this month.  So I used one of the fabulous Embossalicious Embossing Folders (Lattice) and my Ultimate Crafter's Companion Boards ~ which has about 1,001 uses for all kinds of cards, boxes, bags and bows...

My card uses the gorgeous set from Sheena's collection called Wild Rose & Hibiscus and colored with my Spectrum Noir Markers {BT3, BT4, BT5, CT3, CT4, GB6, CG3, CG4, DG3}.

I thought I'd share some of Crafter's Companions great products in my post today.
The eBosser (along with the cutting plates are shown below).  This machine is SWEET!
Just turn it on and it will feed through automatically.

I placed a piece of white cardstock inside the Lattice Embossalicious Folder and fed it through my eBosser.  It comes with all the plates needed and instructions for the correct "sandwich" recipes on how to stack your plates based on what you're doing (embossing or cutting).

Get it started in the machine and then let go...easy peasy!
AND...the plates are 8 1/2" x 11" so you can use the fabulous 8"x 8" Embossalicious Folders
or the GIANT 8 1/2" x 11" sized embossing folders!

I love this Lattice Embossalicious Folder because
you can get two different looks with the same folder.

Next I used my Ultimate Crafter's Companion Tool with the Ulti-Bags Board.
I pulled out a piece of vellum and then used the embossing tool
 that comes with The Ultimate to emboss the triple frame.
Then I trimmed it with my scissors.

By the way ~ there are TONS of different boards available.

Next it was time to make the flowers.
I stamped my images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them
with my Spectrum Noir Markers.

First I started with BT4 around the edges of the flower petal.
Then I added BT3 inside and blended the colors together.

I color one petal at a time so the ink is wet and will blend better.

For the inside of the flower, I added CT3, CT4, and GB6
The final step, I added BT5 and starting from the center,
flicked my bullet tip toward the outside edge.

Here are my finished pieces...ready to assemble.
For the leaves, I used CG3, CG4, DG3

You can also use The Ultimate to score your card bases.

I started assembly wit the leaves.

Then added the flowers with foam dots.

I used a double layer of pretty May Arts Ribbon
(Turquoise Stitched Sheer and Black Gingham)
and wrapped it around my embossed card panel.
Then I added my stamped image & attached the entire panel to the card base.

Once again, here's the finished product!
