WELCOME TO CRAFT: Stamp Embossing with Kate09:00
Kate here with a beginners tutorial on how to use your stamps for embossing & produce some fabulous results. If you are new to us here at Scrappy Canary, here's a link to a post I did in February with some other stamping tips.
Here's some links to where I've used embossing in my Project Life projects recently. This one here from last month, and this one from earlier this year. As you can see, I love a bit of white embossing powder!! I always find myself reaching for my embossing equipment when the papers in the kit are bright. Not sure why - bright colours seems to be a trigger for me to emboss! And Christmas. I love to do it on Christmas spreads, layouts & cards.
Here's a card I made today with some gold embossing powder on vellum & using the papers from the September Strawberry Field Pocket Life kit. I could also see using this tag with some Christmas papers & sentiment for a lovely, yet easy, card to mass produce.
So first things first - here is a photo of the tools that you will need to do this technique. Yes, it requires an investment - but they last a LONG time! Everything you see in this photo (except the stamps) is over 7 years old.
I hope you've enjoyed my beginners tutorial, and that you might give embossing a go!!
