Wink Inked Embossing Folders

African Queen has a good thread started about double-embossing with folders.

This is a different approach to combining ink with EFs & (to be fair) has been shown on before on the Cuttlebug Embossing Techniques thread.

Anyhoo... Here's the simple how-to:

1. Apply ink to one face of your EF.
2. Put your paper/cs in the EF.
3. Run it thru your machine.

Voila! You have a piece that is embossed & colored in one-step.

'Course there are lots more possibilities for playing with this, but you can try them as you go along.

Got a couple projects to share...

With this tag I ran a manilla one thru an EF I inked with intense colored dye ink. Did the same with the diecuts

This piece uses the same technique. The sailboat was stamped & fussy cut before being ink-embossed.

I love the cutting job you did on the third one between the vines and leaves. Who made the sailboat stamp on your second picture?

Thanks for sharing these.

Also, what inks have you found to work best with this process?

LOL, Fab! I can't take credit for the vine & leaf cutting. They are Memory Box diecuts (not sure which I used). I cut the diecuts into pieces & glued them in where I wanted them.

The sailboat stamp is Judikins. The swirl embossing is a Cuttlebug folder.

Thanks for asking, Fab. I like plain dye inks. They work on the EF plastic & clean off easily. I've used TH's distress inks (also dyes), but they don't give as smooth a coverage of color. That's ok when I don't want/need an 'even' color job.

You could certainly use pigment ink--specially if you wanted to heat emboss the results for increased dimension.

Yes, I have seen Versamark used for heat embossing after running through a folder and I consider it to be a colorless pigment type ink.

What brand of dye ink do you like? My Marvy pad inks wanted to bead up on the plastic.

Here is a sample using VersaMark black embossing ink on the background side of a folder. The other colors I added after it was run thru and the pigment ink had dried. I used a makeup sponge to add the other colors and the whole thing was done on glossy cs. Notice the white strip accross the top, stupid cs moved on me as I was closing the folder, guess that's what paper trimmers are for. LOL

FYI - A CAUTION: Be prepared to clean your embossing folder immediately when using dark colors. I went to the bathroom right after and it still took a good bit of scrubbing to get the folder clean. Sure is pretty with a black background though.
