Since my BigKick is finally here, I would love to emboss or texture some paper. However, sometimes I think that the plain embossed or textured paper is just a little dull. Does anyone have any techniques to "spice up" embossed or textured papers??

Here are some that I have found:

(chalking) YouTube - Chalking Cuttlebug Embossed Image
(crayon resist) YouTube - Birthday Wishes - Cuttlebug Crayon Resist
(ink on folder) YouTube - Paper Pleasing ~ Cuttlebug Ink Embossing

Anyone know of any others??? Any for textured paper???

Those are really neat! I'm interested to try the crayon resist and the inking.

Other things I've done with embossed images is you can also ink after embossing to cover the raised area - i just rub the ink pad over the embossed image.

Also if you're using white core (or something like the coordinations cardstock) you can sand the embossed image. (example, not mine!)

Thanks Carrie!

I wonder if some of these techniques would work on paper when you just do a texture rather than an emboss?

Great ideas!! I've done very little embossing, but I think it can be a little plain. I have the plates and stuff to do it, I just never think about it. I can't wait to have my scrap area so I can all my stuff in arms reach.
