At my stamp club earlier this week, I showed my club girls how to use a brayer while embossing to get more uses from your folders! We made this card:
using the Stripes embossing folder and Kindness Matters stamp set. You can see the details of how I did the “gingham” in this post. Just make sure you ink the inside “lid” of the embossing folder, the piece that you lift up; the front piece, so to speak. If you don’t have a brayer, you can just rub your stamp pad over the folder, but you get a more even effect with a brayer. This card uses Crumb Cake, Confetti Cream and Calypso Coral.
Some other samples I made:
This uses the Finial Press embossing folder, Very Vanilla cardstock and Sahara Sank ink. The embellishments were all cut from Beau Chateau Designer Paper.
The last one used the brayer directly onto the already-embossed piece. This uses Finial Press again, Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit, Basic Black and Brushed Gold cardstocks, and Gold Encore ink:
