Hand stamped Magic using the Woodland Embossing Folder

This was a technique that we did at our last team meeting, and it's amazing how simple it is! You can use it with any Embossing Folder, but it is especially effective with the Woodland Embossing Folder that is now in the new Annual Catalogue, p. 195,

Here are samples:

This first one is made using the bridge from the Wherever You Go stamp set p. 144, and the sentiment from Rose Wonder stamp set p. 132.

Sponge the inside of the Woodland Embossing folder with Soft Sky ink, adding extra just below the middle to make it darker. (Make sure you sponge the inside of the folder that has 'sizzix' printed on the outside of it.)

Then ink up your bridge stamp with what ever colour you want to use (I used Basic Black) and stamp it directly onto the inside of the embossing folder that you have just sponged.

Now place your Whisper White cardstock carefully inside the Embossing Folder lining it up on the side opposite the sponged side. Close the folder and run it through the Big Shot.

Open it carefully and... MAGIC... the bridge is behind the raised trunks of the trees.

The next one uses a single tree from Lovely As A Tree stamp set, sponged with Soft Sky and stamped with Night of Navy.

This one uses deer from In the Meadow and is sponged with Crumb Cake and stamped with Chocolate Chip and Garden Green.

Finally this one uses the trees from Lovely as a Tree stamp set stamped in Night of Navy, and sponged with Night of Navy.

It's fun to try whatever stamp sets and Embossing folders you have to see what you can come up with!

Please let me know what you think!

Happy Stamping!
