Dry Embossing with Stencils

by Sindhu Manokaran

Hello crafty friends,

Wishing you all a very Happy New year 2021! Sindhu here from colorsofcraft. Today I have three cards with dry embossing  technique to share.

Embossing with stencil gives  subtle texture to the cards. For this, you need a die cutting machine and an embossing  mat. I followed the instructions given for the embossing ,  instead of  embossing folder I  used embossing mat and stencil.

Card 1

  • I started with embossing Mudra stencil – Deco pattern on a panel which measures 4″ * 5.5 ” and  distressed the half of the panel with broken china distress ink.
  • Then I stamped the image from Mudra  stamps – Happy Monsoon  stamp set on an Iris paper and colored using zig brush markers. I handcut them .
  • I arranged all the stamped images and the sentiment on the panel.
  • This is then adhered to a top folding card and finished it off with adding glossy accent for the rain drops.

Card 2

  • For the second card, I used Mudra stencils – falling hearts  for dry embossing  and distressed the top portion of the panel with distress oxide.
  • The cute little cats are from Mudra stamps – cute critter cat stamp set.I stamped them on a watercolor  paper  and  colored  using  zig  brush  markers.
  • I arranged the stamped images, sentiment and frame die cut.It is then adhered to the top folding card.
  • Completed the card with some mini hearts.

Card 3

  • For this card, I used one of my favorite Mudra stamp – Floral note stamp set.I stamped the floral image on a watercolor  card and colored using zig markers.
  • After dry embossing  with Mudra  stencil – Geo pattern, I distressed the whole panel with Mustard seed distress oxide.
  • Arranged few diecut rings  in the center and  adhered the floral image.
  • The sentiments are from Mudra stamps – Fresh Cut rose.
  • Once the panel is ready , it is then adhered to the top folding card and finished  it  with  some pearls.
