There’s a new kid in town. It’s the brand new Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder. It’s so unique, it embosses and cuts the image in one pass. Yep that’s right. It can’t get too much easier to create than this. Join me to learn all about the components in the new Art in Bloom bundle.

At first glance, the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder appears to be just like any other 3D folder. Don’t assume that, because you would be totally incorrect. Stampin’ Up! has engineered this folder so that you can load both your die and the stamped image into the folder at once. Then by running it through your Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, you’ll get not only embossed images, but perfectly cut images as well.

But there’s more! You can also use the folder like a traditional embossing folder, giving your projects lots of texture. Because I’ve inked the embossed mat with Soft Sea Foam ink the images truly pop off the page.

I’ve even added a little shimmer to the cards in two ways. One, by adding a few of the clear sequins from the Expressions in Ink Ephemera Pack and second giving the flower centers some shine and dimension. That was very easy to achieve with the Shimmery Crystal Effects.
