Today’s tutorial on Splitcoast is on Double Embossing. For my sample I created a card for an Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoast a while back. My inspiration piece was this rose frame.

To start out with I embossed a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock with the Regal Flourishes Embossing Folder and Label 13 Nestabilities die. I masked the embossed part and stamped the big image of Flourishes Paperwhites with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored it with Copic Markers (N0, N1, N2, N3, N4, N5).

The layer was cut down to 4″ x 5″ and stitched to a 3/16″ bigger piece of Basic Grey cardstock. The layers were adhered to a 4 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ white cardstock base.

A piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock was cut and embossed with the two largest of the Label 13 Nestabilities dies to create a frame. That frame was used to frame the image.

Another piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock was cut and embossed with a Spellbinders Fancy Tag die. A sentiment from Flourishes Tag Lines was stamped in its center with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and the center was colored with N2 Copic Marker.  Two dimensionals were stacked on top of each other in the middle of the sentiment, the ends received Scor-Tape to adhere the sentiment down.

A Recollections flower was colored with Copic Marker N3 and adhered to the upper right hand side of the sentiment panel. Pewter Kaisercraft Pearls were adhered to the upper left hand corner to finish off the card.

Here is a video for the visual learner:

  11. I think your work is amazing. I’ve been a fan for a long time, but I have to say it is sad you hardly use SU products anymore. I don’t think these products now are as cute…SU was the best. I know you are doing what you feel is best, it’s just sad. I miss your SU artwork. I’m not trying to be mean, just wish you could still inspire us with SU.

  19. First of all, the grey/white color scheme is beyond striking!! OH MY GOODNESS!

    Second, I cannot WAIT to give this technique a try!

  20. Hello, I have a stupid question…why the first time you ran through the die, it cuts the template, but the second time, it only emboss. I notice the difference between tab 1 and tab 2 as well as the sham. Is that why?

    Also, I love the image you have stamped. I was wondering if there was any technique to it or is it just a stamped image? It looks really really pretty.
