Paper Tuesday: Dry embossing

You probably know what embossing is, have wanted to try it but just never got around to it. I fell into it by accident. A friend of my mom had a bunch of crafting stuff that she never used and gave it to us to comb through it. One of the things in the tub she gave us was this;

A Fiskars embossing system, great for beginners. You can buy several different templates for it as well. The template sets come with two matching, plastic stencils, you insert your paper in between, line it up with the image your wanting to emboss onto it and then just get busy. It's a lot of fun and very addictive, I use this baby a lot to emboss my stationery sets.

There are also grid lines to help you line your paper up, which comes in really handy when your making multiples and need to move fast. The grids really save time.

It also comes with an embossing stylus, but I recommend buying extras of different point sizes.

I absolutely love mine, and unless there's a bigger and better system out there, I don't think I'll be getting rid of mine anytime soon.


  1. what a cool system! i have never tried embossing - but that makes it look like i could actually do it!



  2. Anybody could do it, it's a lot of fun and looks so cool once it's done
