Good Morning Bloggers!!
Today is my day to share a tutorial for
Bugaboo Stamps and I thought I would share something that I just recently
learned how to do myself...
this is not my idea....
just something I learned from another crafter that I thought I would share because it is something I have began using more and more myself!!
Heat emboss using an ink pad and clear embossing power!
Here is the card I made using this technique.
The backgound polka dots are heat embossed as well as the sentiment :)
So this is how you do it..
You need a few basic items...
versamark embossing ink, a colored ink pad~ I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Gathered Twigs,
cardstock and your stamp, mine is My Creative Time~from the Build a Banner kit
You also need a heat tool and of course Embossing Powder~
I use my favorite from
Creative Inspirations Paint~ Deliquesce Clear
So you begin by inking up your stamp with the versamark
Then right over the Versamark, ink up with the colored ink pad
Using the doubled up ink,
Stamp it on your paper
It should look just like it does when you emboss
Next you want to cover your stamped image with the clear embossing power,
once covered shake off all the extra and put back into your container
Final step is to use your heat tool and heat up the embossed image...
TaDa...that is all there is to do!!

This is a great way to heat emboss without having to purchase all the different color
embossing powders and it gives a perfect match to all your projects!!
