Embossing with watercolours?!?
Today’s post features the gorgeous Whimsical Woodland embossing folder, with three different cards that used up the entire sheet I created!
The focus colours were Pacific Point, Bermuda Bay and Night of Navy.
I am joining the Art With Heart Team in the Heart of Christmas Stampin’ Up! Blog hop, where you will find 10+ simple and creative card ideas to inspire your Christmas crafting sessions!
These cards start with versamark ink being patted over the raised surface of the embossing folder. A piece of watercolour paper is placed inside the embossing folder, which is then run through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss machine.
The versamark ink has been applied to the outlines of the embossing folder design, in this case the trees.
TOP TIP: Wash your embossing folder with warm soapy water as soon as possible!
Sprinkle clear embossing powder over the watercolour paper, ensure the entire surface is coated and then shake the powder of the watercolour paper.
Set the clear embossing powder with a heat gun and you are ready for some embossing with watercolours magic!

Embossing With Watercolours Card Recipe
- On the stamp block place a drop of Pacific Point reinker at the top of the block and a drop of Bermuda Bay reinker at the bottom of the block.
- Lay some paper towel under the embossed watercolour paper.
- Spritz the embossed watercolour paper with water until it is quite wet.
- Pick up some of the Pacific Point ink with the watercolour painter and on the stamp block puddle it with water squeezed from the paint brush.
- Start to apply the ink to the watercolour paper by coming in from the edge and brushing in a diagonal pattern, avoiding brush lines by squeezing water.
- Pick up some Bermuda Bay ink and continue applying ink to the watercolour paper until the entire embossed surface is covered.
- Pat dry with a paper towel then allow to dry or dry with a heat gun.
Once dry here are some card making ideas for you to create!
