Hello, Friends!  Today I have a  3D Embossing Folder Techniques and Tutorial to share with you.  We’ll be working with the newly released Spellbinders 4 Petal Floral 3D Embossing Folder, Stamperia Rose Parfum and paper pretties from Reneabouquets.  Sound like fun?  Well, then  pull on your Mixed Media Boots and get ready for another crafty adventure.

It is my personal opinion that 3D embossing folders give me more bang for my crafting dollar than just about any other tool in my considerable stash.  There are so  many reasons I love working with them. First, they are usually priced at a very affordable dollar amount.  Next, there is almost no end to the creative ways you can use them.  Also, you can achieve impressive results in almost no time at all.  Unlike paper, which y’all know I love, embossing folders are non-consumable.

So when I had a chance to take this lovely Floral 3D embossing folder for a test drive, I could not wait to try a bunch of different projects with it.  ( You’ll see 2 more on Monday and Tuesday of next week!)

You’ll see how I transformed a plain piece of cardstock into the shabby chic background on this 5 1/2″ square card in the video tutorial below.  Because this folder creates a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ panel, you’ll also learn how to cut the design down to a custom size.

Shabby Chic Details

Oooh, how I love shabby chic details!  This floral background seemed to beg for a cascade of Strawberry Lemonade Roses, German Glitter Glass, and lots of flirty butterflies. Thankfully, I found all of the above in my stash of Reneabouquets goodies. A little treasure hunting in my embellishment stash revealed a handmade nest of speckled eggs and some soft vintage crocheted lace.

Did you notice that there is no patterned paper on this card?  Instead of using paper, I opted for layered chipboard elements from the Stamperia Parfum collection.

A Peek Inside

Here’s a sneaky peek at the inside of this card.  Of course, there’s a pocket, a tea sachet and a honey stick.  I also created a sweet little tag with another Spellbinders die. You can find it linked in the supply list below this post.

Stamperia Rose Parfum Tea Party in a Box Tutorial for Make & Take Tuesday

Hello, Friends!  We’re going shabby chic today with a Stamperia Rose Parfum Tea Party in a Box Tutorial.  Everything about this gorgeous paper collections says, “shabby me up.”  So I added distressed edges, machine stitching, dry brushing and spattered paint.  Pull your mixed media boots out of the closet, because we are going to have fun today!

Tea Party in a Box with Stamperia Rose Parfum by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design

I’m a pushover for rose patterned papers.  I think they remind me of my grandmother’s house.  She had cabbage roses on the sofa in her parlor, and cabbage rose wallpaper in her den.  There’s a cozy, comfy nostalgia built into the design of this paper collection, and I like it!


Speaking of roses, I’ve added a delicious cascade of pink roses down the side of this 6 1/4″ x 6 1/2″ card folio.  We will decorate the card cover together in today’s tutorial, but the focus of the tutorial is actually on the inside of the card.

A Peek Inside

Like all my Tea Party in a Box creations, you’ll find a lovely box pocket inside the card.  I’ve filled this up with all the usual treats including a sweet little honey dipper and a heart charm. Have you given an

The main focus of our tutorial today is the accordion pull out folio situated inside the top half of the card.  I’m going to show you how to use one piece of 12×12 paper to make a 9-panel photo folio with a magnetic closure mechanism.

Look how much room we have for photos!  The side pocket/photo mat pages cover up the spots where the papers were joined together.

Here’s a closer look at all the goodies I’ve tucked inside the box pocket.
