Guess I hoped she might see it here and tell all of us.

I have had it so long I have no idea, sorry. If I were to guess I'd say Walmart; as once upon a time that was the only shopping to be had in my immediate area. Had to go to town otherwise and that is a possibility but... The way quality has gone by the way side anymore, they are probably all cheaply made of plastic and only one inch cause it's cheaper too.

My umm "file 13" has a number of rejects while trying double embossing, lol. I have found that: 1) if you are going to color the folders the colors you chose make a huge diff 2) embossing one folder and debossing (reversed image) seems to work better so far as well. I'll keep y'all posted and if I get anything even remotely decent I'll take a pic.

Thanks Stacy, there is a Walmart nearby and I wanted to get something else there too. So I shall try to get over this weekend. If I do find it anywhere, I will post here so all of you will know too.

One of the tricks that has worked for me while double embossing is to use embossing folders that have widths of space between the designs and the designs are fairly random.

Can you show us an example of that?

Sure, go back to post 3 on this thread. The first example used two embossing folders where the designs didn't have a whole lot of space. The second example, I believe, would have looked better with the scrolls and the flowers from the first example.

If you go back to my starting post and view the vid, you'll see that she uses designs that have quite a bit of space on them.

Here a couple of "successful" experiments, although the one on the right I'm less thrilled with. I need to go in with a water brush and ink and fill in all the missed areas on it and I'm not too thrilled with the red I used. The one on the left I used a small cardboard shim the same size as the embossing folder when I did the second embossing and while you can't tell in the picture the first impressions are flat (gone) now. The lines around it I did after with my scoring board.

FYI when you do a search in Youtube you get several different techniques, lol.

Stacy, great idea to add those lines. It really pops the featured item nicely. What color was the ink used on the first embossing? It is quite pale, but just enough to show the design. It reminds me of jacquard fabric.

AQ, thanks for pointng me back to those samples.

This makes me think of some of the smaller dies I have too.

The beige-ish green color is Old Paper Distress ink.

Next time I think I would decide where the second embossing is going to be so I can mask that area & keep it white with no ink.

Did you get to check out the seam rollers yet?

You can try it, but I rather like how it made the second color sort of antique looking.
