Hi there everyone! Today I have a video that goes along with these FOUR cards I created using the We R Memory Keeper Next Level embossing folders (except the striped one, that is one of their regular embossing folders)…. The embossing folders are 6×6 and come in a pack of two featuring two different designs… I have had these for quite some time, I admit it. I’m thinking at least 6 months! WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME FOR NOT USING THEM UNTIL NOW? THEY ARE AWESOME!!!!!!
I wanted to create a 4 different cards using 4 different embossed designs along with 4 different colored mediums on the backgrounds. I guess I wanted to use as many stinkin’ products as possible or something (see the supply list??? lol). Before I share all the still shots of the projects, let me link you to the video I made creating these cards…. You can watch it right here on the blog or over on my youtube channel in HD by clicking here!
I think I’ll start with my favorite of the four and work my way down… This background was created with the only non next level embossing folder I used, the Stripe embossing folder. The background is the distress inked background in the colors Picked Raspberry and Squeezed Lemonade.
The vellum butterfly? Holy smokes! I love this paper! I think I picked it up on clearance at Ellen Hutson so I am not sure it will be back in stock, but if it is, get it! I love it. I wish I bought more than one measly sheet. The sentiment is from The Ton’s Let’s Mingle.
Next up, the color burst floral background. I used the Bouquet Next Level Embossing folder and color bursts in the colors Turquoise and Orchid. As I said in the video, I DID NOT mean to lay down so much powder! I was concerned the background was going to drown out the embossed bouquet. But since those embossed images are so raised off the page, I was able to swipe on some Picket Fence distress ink and really made the embossed images pop! I love the way it turned out.
The sentiment is from the Sassy Smiles stamp set by Cas-Ual Fridays and I have no idea how that bit of yellow got down there on the bottom but I’m rolling with it, lol!
And lastly, I used the dotted next level set for this card. I paired the embossed background with the Burst die from Avery Elle. WARNING: When you run these next level embossing folders thru your die cutting machine (probably any embossed image), the images will flatten out some.
I again foiled the love using the Deco Foil Foam Adhesive so I didn’t need to use the Minc Machine or laminator. I simply pressed the foil over the sticky side and bam, foil sticks! Next time, I’ll die cut the circle first and then run the next level embossing folder thru because I really wanted those hearts to pop up (insert sad face)…….
Ok, phew. I’m tired. These cards took several hours to make because a few didn’t make it.. They met their maker (the garbage)…. The video footage had to be edited big time, lol! But I hope you enjoyed them nonetheless!!! These embossing folders are amazeballs.
