Studio Monday with Nina-Marie: Bazzill Embossing Paper + Embossing Folders

Studio Monday with Nina-Marie

Hello everyone and welcome back for a new Studio Monday tutorial! Today I am featuring Bazzill’s Plastic Embossing Paper, which is literally a paper that is made from plastic; providing a durable surface on which you can do dry embossing techniques without fear of the paper cracking or not holding up to certain embossing techniques.

This card that I created featuring  the Couture Creations To Be Jolly Embossing Folder, perfectly illustrates how crisply the Snowball Plastic Embossing Paper dry embosses. The impressions are extremely detailed and because of the plastic, the paper even has a subtle sheen to it.

The paper is not porous because of the plastic content, so it does not hold ink well (during my experimenting with the paper I had attempted to ink blend over it). But if you are looking for a great paper for doing some detailed dry embossing on, I would highly encourage you to try this out!

And by the way, those gorgeous sentiments in the center of the card? Those are from our new Stained Glass Greetings stamp and die set (part of our Making Spirits Bright release)! I really love how delicate and perfect they look on Christmas cards. Have you created any cards using this set? If you have, be sure to share your projects – using this or any of our other stamp and die sets from the Making Spirits Bright release – with us in our Simon Brand Gallery!

I hope you will watch the video below to see how to use the Bazzill Plastic Embossing Paper! Thanks for visiting with me today; I will be back on Saturday and Monday with new videos to share!

  2. How very interesting! I’ve never heard of this new plastic paper. I’ve used acrylic in embossing folders. I’ll have to check this out! Thanks for bringing it to our attention Nina.

  3. Thanks for the suggestion. I inherited a huge stack of the plastic paper and failed with any kind of inking. Now I’ll get to dry emboss it, rather than toss it! Cute card!
