Card Tip - 3D Embossing Folders

Posted on January 9, 2019 at 6:05 PM Comments comments (71)

Mirror Paper & 3D Embossing Folders

The new 3D embossing folders give your projects an incredible look but, can be frustrating at the same time.

The photo above shows the cracks that were made with the enbossing folder.  Please excuse the quality of the photo as mirror paper is hard to photograph!!   Mirror paper, Shimmer and Satin papers done have the 'give' that regular papers do so when they need to flex around some extreme mountains and valleys these papers just crack.

The solution?  Spritz the back of your specialty paper with water and after 15 seconds put it through your die cutting machine.  You will see that it comes out perfectly!

Hope this helps!


On Pre-Order For You!!

Jaquard Products In Stock And Arriving Soon!

Did you know we now carry Jaquard alcohol inks and mixatives?  The Rubber Room still has lots of the Ranger alcohol inks as well as blending solutions.

We have the Jaquard exciter packs of the metallic paints in stock and have the larger 2.5 oz jars of metallic or pearl colours on their way shortly.

These paints work on any surface including wood, fabric, metal and more.  On fabric, the paint stays subtle and washes well.  The possibilities are endless!

Watch for posts of new products from CHA that will be ordering over the next while!



Merry Christmas 2018!!

It's been a beehive of activity in the store!  Stock is coming in every few days and even more great stocking stuffers will arrive early next week.

I'm really looking forward to the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System to arrive in January!  There's no need for toner or a laminator.  With the Glimmer you can use some of your dies from your stash or purchase new dies that will stamp and cut producing gorgeous foiled, letterpress images to put on cards or scrapbooking layouts! For everything shown in the photo it will be $150!  You can use any die cut machine except the Cuttlebug. 

The new Pinata Alcohol Inks will be arriving next week!  They say the metallics are better than the Ranger products but we will see when they arrive.  Price point is the same as Ranger.

I'm really loving those 3D embossing folders!  I've been using the 6X6 from WRMK with mirror paper with beautiful results.  Sizzix also has some out and they are excellent!  You can't use mirror paper on some because the texture is too high and the mirror paper doesn't give as easily as cardstock.  Use a bit of Distress Ink and voila!

Watch for a post in January letting you know that the new fabric paint line will be in!  There's also the 3D!  These paints can be used on fabric, metal, cardboard, wood, glass and more.

If I don't see you before, I hope that everyone and their families have a wonderful Christmas and New Year!

Watch for another post coming soon!
