I have never known any one who used chalk on them. I'm going to have to try that. It would make a lovely look. Judi

My account was also charged for the new folder, usually takes a few days after being charged the item shows up. I will be out by the mailbox waiting today. Anne

How do you ink or chalk a folder and can it be done for example: on the embossing folders we get in September on the butterfly folder can the butterfly itself be inked or can you just ink the background ? I watched a couple of short tutorials and they were not any help. Thanks psf (pam)

psf, I'm not sure they're still on HSN but they had some videos for the Cuttlebug on there. That's where I saw the folder being inked. Judi

You can ink an entire embossing folder prior to running your paper through it. I load ink onto my brayer and roll it onto the "front" of the folder. You have to carefully position your paper in the folder - once you've closed it you can't move the paper or the ink will smear. Just run it through your machine and only your background portions will have ink on them. You can just tap your ink pad onto the folder as well, but I've never had success doing that - I end up getting ink into the grooves and then the design isn't well-defined.

For the butterfly folder - you may want to try coloring the butterfly after it has been embossed. I'm not sure what this EF looks like, but it would be difficult to just ink up the recessed portions of the folder to get the butterfly colored. I don't believe you can use chalk on an EF for the inked effect, but you can certainly use chalk on the design afterward for a very soft effect. I'll have to try chalk later and get back to you. Hopefully I'll have time to give you some examples.

You can experiment with inking just one side or the other. Depending on how the folder is made, one side will ink the background and the other side will ink the design. Just be sure to clean the folder off after you're done.

Talking embossing folders

I got my embossing folders yesterday and they are great. I did not have time to play yet but hopefully today. Thank you Paulette for making some similar as card toppers. I am going to really enjoy these. psf (Pam)

I used the butterfly folder for my boss's day easel cards. I added die cut butterfly, leaves and some punched flowers. Time consuming but they turned out beautiful. One is black and white (a favorite of one boss). I inked the folder with black so the embossed area was white. Layered one black and one white butterfly, with the rest done in white. I am so pleased with these folders and glad they added them to the personal shopper.
