Fabulous Finds Friday — Spellbinders 3D Dies

Who doesn’t like a deep impression? I’m sure by now you’ve heard of the new 3D M-Bossabilities deep impressions embossing folders from Spellbinders. This is dry embossing at its deepest, giving your cards an almost sculpted look.

(For a recap on these embossing folders, check out this post here There is also a link to a great video.)

The folders are made to snap apart for easy inking for a debossed, letterpress-like look.

Here are two embossed pieces made from the same folder (E3D-004):

The pink sample was made using the regular embossing technique on a shimmer pink paper (source unknown.) The yellow was created using a debossing method. I inked the plate using ColorBox Butter Chalk Ink. Can you see how it is pressed into the paper?

Here are two cards made using these pieces:

(Other Spellbinders dies: Antique Frame & Accents and the cut/fold/tuck die, which was attached with a pop-up Glue Dot for added dimension. And a rhinestone. Can’t forget the rhinestone!)

I cut the yellow, debossed piece and got enough for three cards. Here’s just one:

(The frame, from Close To My Heart, was stamped and heat embossed using American Crafts’ Zing apricot powder; the background wood grain stamp and the sentiment are from Hero Arts.)

Thanks for stopping by! Next up is a look at some edge-cutting dies.
