Follow your art: Embossing folder showcase

This card came from having a bit of a play with both embossing folders and my new blending pens.

On browsing Pinterest I came across “Inchies”. Apparently very late to the party as this quote is from a decade ago on Instructables.com:

An Inchie is a piece of art that is 1″ x 1″. The end.
It can be made out of anything you want. It has to be 1″ squared.

I came across a version using embossed card and that’s the inspiration for this card. Reference Jo-Jo’s Spot.

So I used 3 different embossing folders (and my Big Shot die cutting machine), to create 3D patterns on some Whisper White card. I then cut these into 1″ squares to create my Inchies.

I played around with my new Stampin’ Blends to basically colour them in. In the photos, the colour actually means the raised patterns are less obvious – d’oh, in person the texture of the embossing is really nice. The Inchies are then attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals to give a floating effect.

Some thinly cut strips of Blackberry Bliss card were layered into a frame and attached with some doubled up dimensionals to lift it above the Inchies.

The sentiment is actually sneaked from an upcoming stamp set which is being released next month. It fitted so perfectly though I couldn’t resist 🙂

Check out all of the embossing folders available from SU here and remember to always have a peek at the clearance rack too.

The full Stampin’ Blends collection can be found here and the the actual supplies used for this card are shown and linked in the product list below.

Thanks for reading and I hope this gave some inspiration.
