Alphabet Press Embossing Folder

I won this cool embossing folder from the Prize Patrol at Convention! There were some other new  products in the bundle as well that I'll use later. I used Early Espresso Core'dinations cardstock and sanded the front of the letters. The embossing folder coordinates with the Soho Subway Designer Series Paper too. (It's one of the DSP that's on sale until July 31. Buy 3, Get One Free.)

Stamp sets - Sassy Salutations, Yippee-Skippee (inside)
Cardstock - Crumb Cake, Early Espresso Core'dinations
Ink - Soft Suede
Accessories - Alphabet Press Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Sanding Block, Decorative Label Punch, Crumb Cake 3/8" Taffeta ribbon, Stampin' sponge, Stampin' Dimensionals

I did a lot of sponging on the Crumb Cake cardstock to make it blend with the Early Espresso. I used Soft Suede ink, but Crumb Cake would work too.

This is the inside of the card! It's from the stamp set Yippee-Skippee (it was a freebie at Convention too!)
Carbs, schmarbs! Eat the cake!   Don't you just love that!!??


  1. Love it! I saw a wonderful tut on how to use this EF as a background stamp, too. Such a neat gift to win!

  2. Thanks, Marla! It does make a cool background stamp. I love how Stampin' Up! makes its products versatile!
