Hello Summer...New Carta Bella and a Tutorial!

I have really been looking forward to creating Summer layouts.  For some reason, I feel more inspired by summer products.  Carta Bella has come out some fun new Summer products to craft with.  Today, I will be using the new Soak Up the Sun Collection and the Designer Embossing Folder Clouds that go along with it.  I have a fun and easy way to use the new embossing folders.

First off gather your supplies.  You will need:

Carta Bella Embossing Folder
Carta Bella Ultra White Felt Designer Cardstock
Pigment Ink
Manual Die Cut Machine

Cut the cardstock into four 6 x 6 pieces.

Using ink, dab the inside of the embossing folder.  Make sure you dab the side that has the image indented.  Dab everywhere except for on the clouds.  If you get a little on the clouds, it’s okay. 

Insert one of the 6 x 6 pieces of cardstock inside of the embossing folder, making sure not to move it around.  Send it through the manual die cutting machine you use, following the directions for embossing.

Here is what it looks like.

You can use these inked and embossed clouds however you’d like.  I trimmed the edges of mine and used them on my layout.

Here are a few more close ups.  The cute title is from the Silhouette Store.  One of many designs Carta Bella has in their store.

Thanks for stopping in and I hope I have inspired you to get crafty with some of Carta Bella’s new products.  Make sure you check them all out.  You can find them here on the Carta Bella's Blog as well as their Silhouette designs in the Silhouette Online Store!
