Art in Bloom Step-by-Step

CASUAL
Embossing Folders give you a fast way to add texture and depth to cardstock, and the process is so easy! Simply enclose your paper inside the folder and run it through your Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. Embossing is relatively inexpensive and adds an extra element of tactile interest to your cards for extra enjoyment!
This embossing folder has a hybrid design that combines two steps into one, and we think you’re going to love it. The coordinating dies fit inside the embossing folder so it can cut and emboss at the same time! Ta da! See them in action here!
To create our casual Art in Bloom Card, emboss a piece of Pool Party Cardstock using the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder—this time without the dies. Let the embossed cardstock be the centerpiece of this easy-to-make card. Add the label, some die-cut flowers, and a Baker’s Twine bow and you have a card that you can duplicate in multiple colors. Simply switch up the sentiment and use it for almost any occasion!
AVID
We stepped up our second card by adding two-step stamping and die-cutting using both the Hybrid Embossing Folder and the Bloom Dies in the Bloom Die Bundle. Such a timesaver and the technique is so clean and easy.
The Magenta Madness and Granny Apple Green inks really pop against the Pool Party Cardstock, don’t you think? A light dusting of Genial Gems completes this card and adds just the right amount of bling.
ARTFULLY AVID
Our final card features the emboss resist technique for a painterly look that appears difficult but is in fact quite simple to achieve. Stamp the image in VersaMark ink, add White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, and heat emboss tool. Then, using a Blending Brush or Sponge Dauber, apply ink to your image, varying the pressure as you go to create variations in color depth. That’s it! We also added a sunshine-y floral center using Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends, then finished with ethereal-looking vellum leaves. Gorgeous!
