Hello Crafts ‘n things community! Spellbinders is thrilled to be sharing a tutorial using our new 3D M-Bossabilities with you on the blog today! Spellbinders entered the craft and hobby market in 2003 and we’ve been innovating ever since. This newest product is no exception!
You’ll love the realistic, sculpted surfaces and dynamic letterpress capabilities. These folders measure 5″x7″ in size and are perfect for A7 size cards. They even produce amazing pieces for “fussy cutting”! Take a peek at our brief tutorials below and fall in love with the unique, new Spellbinders® 3D M-Bossabilities™.
This card was designed by Spellbinders Blog Team member Heidi Blankenship. She’s featured E3D-003 Delightful Daisies. Heidi also used a letterpress technique to get the dazzling golden effect on her card.
- Spellbinders Paper Arts™ Grand Calibur® Machine
- 3-D Embossing Folder E3D-003 Delightful Daisies
- S6-001 5 x 7 Card Creator Matting Basics A
Other Supplies Used:
- JustRite Papercraft CL-04390 Butterfly Dreams
- Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko® Delicata Golden Glitz Pigment Ink; Memento™ Desert Sand, Rich Cocoa; StazOn® Timber Brown
- The Rubber Café Pearl Jellie Dots, Stick “EM” Up Tool
- Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L™ EZ Runner®
- Paper: DiscountCardstock.com Champagne Metallic, Posh Milk Chocolate
- Accessories: Really Reasonable Ribbon Gold Metallic String; Clear Glaze, Crystal Beads
Lightly mist the front and back of the paper to loosen up the fibers in the paper. This will give you an even deeper and crisper emboss.
Next, use a brayer to apply the Golden Glitz ink to the 3-D Embossing Folder for prefect coverage of the ink. If you do happen to get some ink in an area that you don’t want, simply use a Q-tip to remove the ink.
The 3-D Embossing Folder is a little bit thicker than the M-Bossabilites™ folders so the sandwich is a little bit different. Starting from the bottom up, layer the plates in this order: B Embossing Plate, 3-D Embossing Folder and D Adapter Plate. You will use this sandwich for both the larger plates and junior plates. Once you have your plates lined up, run them through the Grand Calibur.
Next, use a Q-tip with Memento™ Desert Sand and Rich Cocoa inks to add some darker colors and shading to the daisies, butterfly and banner. Then use Rich Cocoa ink to stamp the flourish and StazOn® Timber Brown for the sentiment. The stamp set CL-04390 Butterfly Dreams is a CHA Release from JustRite Papercraft.
Layer Posh Milk Chocolate for a mat behind the embossed paper and then add some gold metallic string and beads to dangle on the side. Adhere it to a Champagne Metallic card base. To finish off the card I added a clear glaze and pearls to the flower centers and the body of the butterfly.
