This is part 2 for me, I did her beginner course. This class was an eye opener for this beginner, never again will I throw out a dud attempt of background making. And I'm not scared of my Die Cutting Machine's creaks and groans. This course taught me so much and I am looking forward to her next one.

I am fairly new at card making and didn't know what embossing and embossing powders were for. This was so informative so I will now be getting a manual die cutting/embossing machine. So looking forward to trying these techniques out. Great video content

Meet your class teacher, Cindy-Lynn, and she will introduce you to what you are about to learn.

Embossing With Folders
12m

You will learn what is a die-cut and embossing machine, how to use embossing folders to add texture and dimension to your cards, how to prevent your paper from cracking when embossing, what to do if your embossing folders won't emboss properly, and how to blend color on embossed backgrounds.

Heat Embossing
12m

In this lesson, you will learn what is Versamark and how to use it, how to melt embossing powders to create a heat embossed image, and how to blend over top of heat embossed images.

Stenciling Bonus
3m

Using her blending tools and ink, Cindy-Lynn will show you how to ink over top of heat embossed images. As a bonus, she has a few stenciling examples to show you. Stencils can be a lot of fun, and they can create such pretty backgrounds.

Die-Cutting
17m

Cindy-Lynn will teach you what are die-cuts and how to make them, how to emboss a die onto paper, how to die-cut from stamped backgrounds, how to die-cut from leftover paper or scraps, and, as a bonus, how to die cut from failed experiments on cardstock.

Embellishments
13m

In this last lesson, Cindy-Lynn will demonstrate how to choose coordinating embellishments; how to use an embellishment tool and how to glue tiny embellishments easily. She will also teach you her system of 'the rule of triangles' which helps when placing embellishments and making them pleasing to the eye.
