Altenew Seasonal Textures Stand-alone Embossing Folder Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes)


Welcome to my stop on the Altenew Seasonal Texture Stand-alone Embossing Folder Full Release Celebration Blog Hop. I have the full hop list at the end of this post.
There are 7 new Embossing Folders in this collection. Check out my samples below.




Classic Pinecones Slim 3D
Embossing Folder

This is a new size/shape of folder....Classic Pinecones Slim 3D Embossing Folder creates a lovey winter themed card. For my first card, I trimmed the embossed panel down to an 2A size card after inking the flat side of the folder with multiple colors of ink for a scrumptious background to the 3D pinecones and branches. Swiping embossing ink over the pinecones, then adding WHITE EP, I achieved a somewhat realistic snowy/sticky texture :)))
FEATURING:

Here is a second card created with the left over portion of the Classic Pinecones Slim 3D Embossing Folder from the above card. I cut out a single pinecone from the panel to serve a s an embellishment
FEATURING:
 
I embossed a sage colored CS then inked and heat set Translucent Pearl Crisp Embossing Powder onto the debossed areas of the panel for a textured matte for the focal point.

The BOLD bloom on the Frilly Peonies 3D Embossing Folder is the perfect image to watercolor! I'm new to this technique. The raised elements from the 3D folder create a edges for which the watercolor pools to become shadows in the petals.
FEATURING:
FEATURING:
Crisp inks: Persian Blue, Lagoon, Emerald
*******
Modern Wishes Debossing Folder
A SUPER easy final card: Simply swipe the crisp ink onto the flat side/debossed section of the folder, then fussy cut/ die cut the circle. Place on top of card front with embellishment of your choice. 

FEATURING:
Crisp inks: Bamboo, Moss, Olive
