Hi friends. A quick way to create a dimensional background with little effort is to use an embossing folder. We all have a bunch of embossing folders we bought when it was all the rage to emboss everything and now they sit in a drawer or craft room shelf collecting dust. Am I right?!? Come on, you know it’s true??? LOL Well thankfully they are coming back in fashion and there are so many techniques you can do with them. Today we are keeping it simple — just some ink and a blender. No fancy tools needed either.
For this card, I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock to 8-1/2 x 5-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create the card base. Then cut a piece measuring 4 x 5-1/4″ and embossed with the Stampin’ Up! Cobwebs 3D Embossing Folder (retired); any spiderweb embossing folder will work here.

Hi friends. Here’s a quick pumpkin shaped card that can easily be mass produced. You can use these as cards, notes, invitations… I added additional ink over the pumpkins to give them more depth but you can easily stamp onto white cardstock or plain colored cardstock.

I love this new Patchwork Pumpkin Stampset from Honey Bee Stamps! You can create all kinds of cute pumpkins. You can also add flowers and the coordinating dies makes it easy to cut everything out. I made three cards using different color papers and coloring methods but with the same embossing powder. I wanted to see how to create different cards by just making subtle changes. Using pattern papers and embossing folders is also an easy way to add interest.
For the second card, I started by cutting a piece of Catherine Pooler Sand Dunes 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock (discontinued-any kraft cardstock will work) to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to make the card base and cut a piece of the purple paper from the Honey Bee Stamps Halloween Harvest 6×6 Paper Pad to 4 x 5-1/4″.
