Tuesday Tutorial | Dry Embossing with Stencils

Hello Whimsy Friends!

It's Lori here today with a tutorial on how to dry emboss with stencils. Today I'll be using the Giraffe stencil, Giraffe 2 stamp set,  two distressed oxide inks colors and my manual die cutting machine to create a card with dimension and texture in a different way.

To begin I used #80 Neenah cardstock with Scattered Straw Distressed Ink. I blended the Scattered Straw distressed ink in a circle fashion on the cardstock.

Then I placed the Giraffe stencil over the ink blended cardstock and blended the Rusty Hinge Distressed Oxide Ink.

After blending the second color I placed the Giraffe stencil back onto the cardstock, making sure to line up the pattern, and taping the back of the cardstock with Purple Tape. This is where I want my dimension to appear.  

Then I ran the cardstock and stencil through my manual die cutting machine using an embossing pad. And this is the result below. It's a little hard to see in photos, but in real life you can see the dimension.   

Here's another close up of the dimension. If you're using your phone reading this or have a touch screen monitor, tap the photo for a better view.

Here is the completed card, I love this technique, but haven't done it in a while!

I hope you enjoyed this technique tutorial and will give it a try. It's a great way to stretch our supplies!
