The Sky is the Limit with Woodland Embossing folder

What can I say? except Love, Love, Love both these products from Stampin' Up! and one of them is FREE with a qualifying order during Sale-A-Bration.

Of course I am talking about my all time favourite Embossing Folder: Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing folder. Did you miss out on ordering this from the Handmade for the Season Catalogue? Don't worry you will be able to order it from our next Annual Catalogue - it has been so popular and in demand that Stampin' Up! is bringing it back! 

Did I mention FREE stamps? Yes the gorgeous "Sky Is The Limit" stamp set is one of the free offerings during Sale-A-Bration (SAB) 

But you need to hurry if you want this one as it is only available while stocks last and definitely not after February 15th.  You simply need to place a $90 order of Stampin Up products and you can choose this set for free. Now that's a great deal. (Australian residents only)

Contact me for further details, or place your order on-line at my store and it will be posted straight to your home. Use the current Hostess Code (top right side bar) to be in the draw to win the Hostess Rewards for the month

Now a little about the card. The picture in my head was of the plane taking off from a country airfield - viewed through the forest. I used the same technique of swiping the folder as I did for my original technique post so you might like to check that tutorial out.

This time I used Lost Lagoon and Delightful Dijon - 2 of our current IN COLORS, swiped directly onto the folder. Then I stamped the image using Memento Black.

The greeting is a combination of two greetings from the same stamp set - Sky Is The Limit, and they have been embossed over vellum - yes I love those trees so much I hate to cover them up.

The outer edge of the embossed image has been sponged with Lost Lagoon ink prior to matting onto Basic Black card and Lost Lagoon card, and a little touch of Linen thread completes the picture.

Hope you like it

Until Next Time....


  1. I am in love with this card and the technique you demonstrate but I guess I need more practice as mine didn't turn out like yours I LOVE IT!!!

    1. Thank you so much Charlene. This technique can be a bit hit and miss, so don't be discouraged. I think the trick is to hold the stamped image on the folder for a few seconds, then when it is dry add a little solid colour with your Aqua Painter.

    2. oops I should have said, after it has been run through the Big Shot and is dry. Sorry for the confusion.

  2. Amazing post dear! You have a wonderful blog:)
