I’m doing something a little different today. I shared a time-lapse video on my instagram account this past monday of how I emboss my logo using stamps. Many of you requested more information so I’ve put together a little DIY guide on how I emboss using my logo stamps at home.
Let’s get started!
Here are my materials and what you will need to get embossing!!STAMPS – mine are from rubberstamps.net EMBOSSING INK – I found this one at micheals arts & crafts EMBOSSING POWDER – also from michaels but can be found in any craft store HEAT GUN – I really should get a kick back from michaels…found this one there as well. Other great places to find stamping related stuff is Paperwishes, Joanns, + stampin’ up.
So here’s the step-by-step guide…
1 – Prep your work area and surface to be stamped. Play around with different types of paper and such because some work better than others. I have found that some just absorb the ink too fast and the powder has nothing to grab onto.
2 – Press your stamp into the tinted embossing ink pad.
3 – Stamp it!
4 – Sprinkle the embossing powder all over the freshly stamped ink and shake it around a little so it catches on.
5 – Tap off excess.
I hope you’ve found this helpful – I’m happy to answer questions below. With holidays right around the corner (department stores wont let us miss that!!), this could be a fun crafty addition to your cards or gift tags.
Will you be trying out embossing??
