Emboss like a Boss !
Hello Everyone !
To end this year beautifully, why not learn something new to add sparkle to your life !
In this tutorial you will learn how to emboss like a boss for all your creative projects !
Tools and equipments you will need:
Embossing ink pad (I use Versamark ink)
Embossing pen (optional - Versamark watermark pen)
A heating gun
Stamps (wooden or clear/ silicon)
A stamping block
A pair of scissors or die-cutting machine (optional)
Double-sided tape (optional)
Laser and Inkjet printers (optional - only if you want to combine embossing with laser foil printing)
Adobe Photoshop Software (optional - only if you want to add your own designs)
Emboss like a boss ! WooHoo !
Stamp Set 1 (Many more available on Ebay !)
Stamp Set 2 (Many more available on Ebay !)
Stamp Set 3 (Many more available on Ebay !)
Stamp Set 4 (Many more available on Ebay !)
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 !
Great to share homemade bonbons or fudge with your family and friends !
THANK YOU FOR WATCHING !
