Faux leather book,

Hello Blog Friends

Today I am going to give you a sneak peak at the other projects I made using the New Embossing Folders by Sheena Douglass which she will be working with tomorrow on Create and Craft at 9am and 3pm.

The front cover of the Faux Leather book I made using one of the new folders.  The flowers were coloured using the Silks paints.

The back cover of the book made using a second embossing folder.  I stitched a large button to the front and back cover. glued a large flower on the front one and used elastic to hook around the two buttons to keep the book closed.

The inside of the book covered with fabric and then a small envelope and tag stuck inside.  I used the two embossing folders to emboss the pages on the left hand side of the book as shown in this picture.

This is a box that I have made using black card the elephant embossing folder and then going over the raised area with gilding wax.

Last but not least this card I made using a beautiful 5"x 7" embossing folder and I used my distress inks on it and cut some of the flower out to give lift and shape.  I also cut out some extra flowers from the folders and used a Sheena sentiment and a tattered lace die for the bird.

Make sure you tune in to Sheena's two shows tomorrow at 9am and 3pm and you will get the chance to watch Sheena use her folders using lots of different techniques, shows not to be missed.

Thanks for looking in I would love for you to leave a comment letting me know what you think and I can give further details on my makes if you want them.

Elephants and Arches

Hello Bloggers,

Today I am going to talk you through a card I have made using one of the new Sheena Douglass embossing folders.

I started with a piece of black card cut to 5"x 7" and put it through the embossing folder with the crosses on it and ran it through my eBosser.  Once embossed I then applied some Renaissance Gilding Wax over the raised area.

I cut a piece of kraft card as a matt and then on a slightly smaller piece of kraft card I used the arches embossing folder.  I ran some glycerine over the smooth side the folder placed the card face down and embossed it.

Once embossed I covered the areas made wet by the glycerine with black embossing powder and heated.  The raised area that was left was painted with a gold H2O.

I used some black card and again used glycerine on the smooth side of the elephant embossing folder and once that was embossed I covered it with gold embossing powder and heated.  I cut two of the elephants out and used glue gel to raise them slightly.

The sentiment was stamped using black archival ink on kraft card and cut out using frame one D-Lites die.  I went along the edges with the gilding wax.

If you tune in to Sky on Monday at 9am and 3pm you will catch Sheena doing her wonderful techniques using her new embossing folders.

Thanks for dropping by please do leave a comment and be sure to check out the rest of the samples made by the other inkoids and Sheena herself.
