First and foremost, a heartfelt thank you to everyone who joined me yesterday for the exciting Premiere featuring the Thoughtful Moments Hybrid embossing folder. It was an absolute delight to have you all there, and I cherished the opportunity to share some creative inspiration with each of you.

During the Premiere, we dove headfirst into the wonderful world of embossing, exploring the versatility and endless possibilities offered by the Thoughtful Moments Hybrid embossing folder. From intricate designs to subtle textures, we experimented with a variety of techniques to unlock the full potential of this innovative tool.

I hope you found the demonstration both informative and inspiring. Whether you’re a seasoned crafter or just starting out on your creative journey, my goal was to provide you with valuable insights and practical tips that you can incorporate into your own crafting projects.

But the fun doesn’t stop here! As we continue to explore the boundless realms of creativity together, I encourage you to unleash your imagination and push the boundaries of what’s possible with the Thoughtful Moments Hybrid embossing folder. After all, the beauty of crafting lies in the endless opportunities to learn, grow, and create something truly extraordinary.

Once again, thank you for being part of this special Premiere experience. Your enthusiasm and support mean the world to me, and I can’t wait to embark on many more creative adventures together in the days and weeks to come.



First up, we’ve got this adorable “Hello” piece that’s been embossed to perfection using the Thoughtful Moments Hybrid embossing folder. But you know me—I couldn’t resist adding a little extra flair! I grabbed my ink pad and lightly brushed it right onto the folder to create a sweet outline around the word. It’s a simple trick that really makes our embossed piece stand out. Don’t be afraid to put ink on the folder as it easily washes off.

Now, onto the fun part—adding color! I reached for my trusty Stampin’ Blends markers and went to town, bringing our embossed design to life with vibrant shades that pop against the page. And let me tell you, the embossed areas made it a breeze to stay within the lines!

But the magic really happens when we put it all together. By layering our embossed “Hello” piece into a cute little window box I created with some basic dies that are included in the Everyday Details dies, we create a dynamic focal point that’s sure to catch the eye. It’s like our greeting is jumping right off the page to say hello!


Thoughtful Moments Window Box Card

Now my second card of the day using the Thoughtful Moments Hybrid embossing folder steals the show. It’s amazing how something as simple as paper, the folder, and a die can come together to create such an elegant “celebrate” focal point. And let me tell you, it’s always a win when we can achieve stunning results with minimal supplies!

But the fun doesn’t stop there. Oh no! I’ve paired up our embossed sentiment with another knockout die from the Everyday Details Die Set, and wow, does it ever make our card pop! It’s like they were meant to be together, adding that extra bit of flair that takes our creation to the next level. Of course I couldn’t resist that splash of color with textile and added a simple ribbon knot to polish it off.

Now, let’s talk about the best part—the surprise inside! When you open up this fun fold card, you’ll be treated to an interactive display that’s sure to bring a smile to anyone’s face. It’s the kind of card that’s not just for looking at—it’s for experiencing!

For my grand finale, I’ve whipped up an interactive candy bar holder that’s guaranteed to bring smiles and surprises. Picture this: you pull up on the ribbon, and ta-da! The secret inside is revealed, promising a moment of pure delight for whoever receives it. It’s the perfect combination of creativity and sweetness, if you ask me!

Now, let’s talk about the decorating part. I decided to revisit the ink-on-folder technique, but this time, I switched things up by using a brayer. And let me tell you, it’s a game-changer! Not only does the brayer keep the ink crisp and clean, but it also ensures that you don’t end up with any unwanted smudges or excess ink lying around. The result? A perfect outline that’s as sharp as can be!

As for the choice of materials, I kept it simple yet striking by opting for colored cardstock. After all, when you’ve got a star like the Thoughtful Moments Hybrid embossing folder doing its magic, there’s no need for anything too fancy. Sometimes, less is truly more!

Oh, and before I forget—did you notice that all of today’s projects featured the Most Adored Designer Series Paper? It’s one of the fabulous items you can snag for free during Sale-A-Bration with your $50 order. And here’s the best part—you can choose one exclusive item for each $50 you spend. Talk about a bonus!
