Cuttlebug Ink Embossing Video

In this video you’ll learn one of my favorite techniques using ink, an embossing folder and cardstock.  You’re going to LOVE it!  You can use any kind of ink, but if you want your folders to clean up easily, use only water based ink.  I do use one pigment ink pad in this video and that one is hard to clean and can stain your folders! πŸ˜‰

Β Here are some links where I’ve used this technique:

Spongebob Treat Bag

Tank Card

Guitar Card

Thanksgiving Invitation

Cupcake Card

Alzheimer’s Card

I almost forgot to add this card!
Β I think it turned out great using this technique.

Thank You Card

Have fun!
