How to use Embossing powder (Making bookmarks)


Today I’m showing you how to use Embossing powder.

I love Embossing powder I like how it gives your stamped images a nice glossy raised look.

In today’s project we are making bookmarks, and using the beautiful you stamp set.

We are also using gold Embossing powder I love gold as it goes with any colour and it stands out beautifully.

So to start making the book mark, you need to cut 2 pieces of Cardstock down

2″ x 5 1/4″ (5cm x 13.3cm)

Put one to the side and emboss the second piece.

We need to start by rubbing your Embossing buddy over the card before you stamp your image, this prevents powder sticking to places you don’t want it to stick.

Ink up your image and sentiment in Versamark Waterbase ink and stamp them on to your card.

Get your Embossing powder and sprinkle it all over the image and sentiment and tape of any excess.

Then heat set the powder with a heat tool until the powder turns to a glossy effect, make sure you keep moving the heat tool over the card to prevent warping. If you find your card is warping just run your heat tool.of the back of the card as well.

Colour in your image with the clear wink of Stella for a bit of sparkle.

Get the second piece of card Add some double sided tape to the back and stick the to card stock together for extra stability.

Round the corners with a corner punch.

Get a lace doily and add sections to the corners of the book mark.

Finally punch a hole and add some ribbon.

So it’s that simple to use Embossing powder I love it.
