2 FABULOUS 3D Embossing Techniques? (with Video Tutorial)

Do you need inspiration for your 3D Embossing Folders? Let’s use our imagination šŸ˜‰…

With the Imaginary Jungle Bundle! This is a sweet set and I have used this stencil with ink blending before and you can see that card HERE. But what about using something different?

This is part of my Take 2 Series with Altenew and I love how different these cards look just by changing up the technique.

Card #1 – Watercolour Stencil & 3D Emboss

I have never used Woodless Watercolor Pencils with stencils before and I was wondering how they would be? And I’m happy to say that it was very easy to do, in fact, anyone could do this (you can see how in the video linked below)!

It’s definitely not a technique for all of the ‘neat freaks’ but scroll down and I have a card for you too!

BONUS TIP: Why not try regular pan paints if you don’t have any Watercolour Pencils, I’ve used them with stencils previously with great results.

To bring the card together I added some Brushed Gold cardstock. Which included a Fine Frame as well as a Versatile Greetings sentiment.

Card #2 – Ink Blending & Debossing

And for something completely different I decided to create a very clean and simple card with a 3D Debossed panel.

It is as simple as flipping the 3D Embossing Folder over. Something to note is that the pattern will also be reversed so this will not work with ‘word’ embossing folders.

I blended the Frozen Delights Inks and added a sentiment from the Sweet Sentiments Die set.
