Inked Embossing Folder Trick with Pedal To The Metal Stamp Set

Masculine card featuring Pedal to the Metal stamp set from Stampin' UP!

The inked embossing folder trick is so easy to do and adds so much depth and texture to your cards.

The best part of this trick is it’s super simple. Simply take the ink pad and lightly ink the side of the embossing folder that you want to make the inked impression.

Idea for creating simple mountain background using the Mountain Air stamp set from Stampin' UP!

The mountain background is stamped in Pool Party ink. I used the solid side of the stamp to create the silhouette of the mountains.

I love the Mountain Air stamp set because you can use either side of the stamp images. This allows you to create a silhouette or shaded looks. You can check out another card I made using the Mountain Air bundle HERE.
