TEACH me That! A new series by the Technique Design Team. Learn a new technique every Thursday at www.SimplySimpleStamping.com.

Today in Teach Me That, I will be showing you, step-by-step, how to use the Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folders.  Hmmmm that’s a lot to type so how about I call it DTIEF.   Everyone good with that?  Cool.

These folders are similar to our Textured Impressions Embossing Folders but there are some differences.

The DTIEF are designed to:

  • Leave a deeper impression
  • Give more detail
  • No bottom cutting plate required
  • Spritz with water or emboss dry
  • Be easier to sponge ink on final impression

Are you ready to learn how to use them?  Here we go!

  • Begin with you Big Shot Platform.  If you are using the platform with the hinges, you will want all the tabs ‘out’.

  • Lay the DTIEF directly on the Big Shot platform (no bottom cutting plate).TEACH Me That! Learn how to create with Dynamic Textured Embossing Folders at www.SimplySimpleStamping.com - look for the June 15, 2017 blog post
  • Place your cardstock inside the DTIEF.  
  • Some die cutting machines can ‘cut’ through the paper.  It’s best to test on a scrap piece of cardstock first.  If your DTIEF is cutting into the paper, you should spritz with water first.  The Stampin’ Spritzer is perfect because it’s leaves a fine mist on your cardstock.TEACH Me That!

  • Place a cutting plate on top of the DTIEF.  Run through your Big Shot machine.

  • Just look at the super deep impression!
  • You can leave it ‘as is’ or you can gently sponge ink to make the impressions pop even more.

Now you’re ready to create a card using the technique?  Here’s what I did with my dry embossed cardstock.

Thought I might as well use the cut out heart.  I cut a smaller heart from it and adhered it to the front.

Day 3 of Broadway Bootcamp was unbelievable!!!  So much happened but the big thing was that Ginny landed a BIG solo for Friday night’s performance. The song is “Seasons of Love” (Rent) and at the end of the song there is a VERY high note that is always a show stopper. I will be sure to record it and share next week.

All the kids were treated to professional headshots and the make-up girl said to Ginny, “How many times a day do you get told you look like Taylor Swift?”  It’s true, she does.

Ginny also had her session with Faith Prince on her audition song and she taught her SO much.

Last night was the Broadway Dance Party. All the kids dressed as their favorite Broadway character. Ginny went as Maria from “Sound of Music”.

Here she is with Kristin Chenoweth and Faith Prince.

She had an amazing night! Today is a full day. She goes until 7:30pm and then off to a Drillers baseball game to sing the National Anthem. She won’t be back until about 10pm so yep…long day for sure. Does she mind?!? Heck no! She’s having the time of her life!!!

I just fell in love with the Pinewood Planks Hearts Card so I decided to make a video on it.  And guess what?  It is a MAKE IT IN MINUTES video too.  Be sure to tune in tomorrow for that!

    Can’t wait to see the video of Ginny! If you could share her singing the National Anthem as well, we would LOVE to see that, too! Hugs!

    I am new to your blog and I am enjoying them very much. I have made so many cards this week, more than I usually make in a month. Thank you for your clear instructions, pretty colors, and lovely cards.

    Oops, forgot to ask my question – does Stampin Up still sell the Curvy Label punch? I don’t see it in my catalog.

  4. Ditto what Debbie said.
