Get your equipment ready !
 

Note: Embossing powders come in different types, mainly Ultra High, Regular and Super fine depending on the design you are embossing !
 


Step 1:  Place/ stick your clear stamp on an acrylic block and gently press over your embossing ink pad.



Step 2: Spread your empossing powder entirely over the resulting watermark !
 


Step 3: Remove/ tap off the excess powder and place it back in its container.
 


 



Step 4: Use your heat gun (allow it to become hot enough by letting it work (switched on) for about 1 minute) to start the embossing process ! Woohoo, magic is in the air ...



Step 5: Repeat step 1-3 with other stamps and/ or empossing powders. Have FUN !







Step 6: Embossing using an embossing pen !



Step 7: I am creating a design for a small gift bag using Adobe Photoshop. Note that I will combine the embossing features with laser foil printing for that special effect .


Step 8: Laser foil printing (Tutorial here).



Step 9: Using a die-cutting machine to do a small gift bag (a pair of scissors will also be fine ).



Step 10: Using double-sided tape to assemble the gift bag .



Have fun with more embossing !



Voila !



Great to share homemade bonbons (recipe) or fudge (recipe) with your family and friends !
