Create 15 Heat Embossed rubber stamp images on paper swap
u will create both ur partners 15 heat embossed rubber stamp images, medium to large size images.
aper crafts are always a blast to do, but heat embossing adds a magic touch. This technique lets you add textured elements to your card stock or paper, using stamps, ink and special powders. (It's all about the melt!) You won't need too many supplies to get started, and the results are gorgeous. Get ready to see just what you can do.
What You Need Stamp Ink pad Embossing powder Paper or card stock Piece of scrap paper Heat gun
here's how to make the magic happen.
Pour the leftover embossing powder onto the scrap paper. Flip the card stock over and tap it a couple of times to get rid of more excess powder. Funnel the leftover powder back into the container.
Heat the embossing powder with a heating gun until it's completely melted; be careful not to overheat it because it will bubble and evaporate, possibly discoloring the paper.
Glitter trays and coffee filters are great for catching any extra embossing powder that you shake off. Trays have an opening on one end that lets you pour the extra powder back into its container easily. If you don't have a tray already, coffee filters work just as well and are way cheaper. Small paintbrushes can be used to remove or loosen stray embossing powder from harder-to-get-areas like the space between words. Craft tweezers and heat-resistant surfaces, like the back of an old cookie sheet, help keep your fingers safe as you heat the embossing powder. Embossing pens and markers have the same kind of ink as embossing ink pads, but give you more control — and more freedom to create your own images and text. Once you start playing around with heat embossing, it's easy to become mesmerized (because: magic). Consider yourself warned!
