Paper Craft Planet Lesson 4 Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Back to Basics
    • Rubber Stamping Techniques and Tips
    Lesson 4 and present
  • 2. Basic Embossing Tips Embossing powder comes in a huge variety of colors and formulations. As a general rule powders will work best when used over similarly colored ink. Embossing requires the use of a heat source. This must be at least 300° F or hotter. You cannot use a hair dryer, it’s not hot enough and blows too much air. There are several commercial heat tools on the market just for embossing. In order to emboss you must stamp your image with a pigment type ink pad. The ink in these pads is specially formulated to dry slowly so that the powder will stick to the paper long enough to be heated. Many people confuse these pads with glue. They will not hold glitter, flocking or other embellishments on the page. Stampendous has more than 40 different embossing powders, plus VersaMark™ ink, available online at www.stampendous.com
  • 3. Winter Wishes Card This dazzling Winter Wishes card is easy to achieve with sparkling Winter Wonderland embossing powder.
  • 4. Winter Wishes Card Supplies used to make this card: From Stampendous SSC623 Snowflake Symphony Perfectly Clear™ Stamps CRV130 Cling Winter Wishes Cling Rubber™ Stamp SSH34 Medium Rectangle Handle EP171 Winter Wonderland Embossing Powder VersaColor™ Pigment Ink Pads from Tsukineko White Ribbon from Creative Impressions ¼” Glimmer Ribbon – White Shimmer Rounds – Blue and White Card stock from Bazzill Basics™ Huckleberry Pie and Kevin Adhesive from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L - EZ Runner
  • 5. Winter Wishes Card
    • Cut all pieces of card stock needed for card:
    • 1 – 8 ½” X 5 ½” panel of Huckleberry Pie
    • 1 – 5 ½” X 2” panel of Huckleberry Pie
    • 1 – 5 ½” X 2 ¼” panel of Kevin
  • 6. Winter Wishes Card Place several snowflakes from Snowflake Symphony on the acrylic handle at one time. This allows you to quickly stamp a stunning background by stamping several images at once. Pigment pads are easiest to use if you hold the pad in one hand and bring it to the stamp in the other. VersaColor™ Pigment ink by Tsukineko comes in 76 vibrant colors in full-sized stackable pads or convenient 1” cubes. See all the colors at www.tsukineko.com
  • 7. Winter Wishes Card Fold the 8 ½” X 5 ½” Huckleberry Pie Panel in half to form the base of the card. Stamp the entire card front in white VersaColor pigment ink using the snowflakes. Fold a piece of scratch paper in half with a good crease to collect embossing powder. With your card on top of the folded scratch paper, sprinkle Winter Wonderland embossing powder over the entire card front. This sparkly powder is a custom blend of opaque white powder and silver glitter.
  • 8. Winter Wishes Card Dump the powder off the card front on to the folded scratch paper. Be careful not to smudge your snowflakes when picking up the paper. You can tap it on the table or flick it lightly with your other hand to dislodge any stray grains of powder. Use the fold in the scratch paper like a funnel to put the excess powder back in the jar. Tap the paper lightly with your middle fingers to make sure all the powder is saved. When embossing, clean off each paper thoroughly between colors so as not to cross-contaminate your powders!
  • 9. Winter Wishes Card Use a heat embossing tool to melt and set the powder. There are a large variety of these tools on the market, some get hotter more quickly than others. All of them reach at least 300° F, so be very careful, especially if embossing with children. Heat the powder by keeping the heat tool 3” – 5” above the surface. Heat until all the powder becomes shiny. CAUTION: the melted powder is very hot. Keep the heat tool moving to avoid burning the paper. Always unplug your heat tool when not in use. Keep away from children and pets. An unattended heat tool is a huge fire and burn hazard.
  • 10. Winter Wishes Card Emboss Cling Winter Wishes on the top of the Huckleberry Pie strip with white VersaColor ink and Winter Wonderland powder. Emboss the inked edges by dipping them into the Winter Wonderland powder and tapping off the excess. Heat to melt and set the powder. Use the white pigment pad to brush ink on all four edges of the Winter Wishes Panel.
  • 11. Winter Wishes Card Use a 1/8” hole punch to punch three holes in the center bottom of the Winter Wishes Panel. Insert light blue and white Shimmer Rounds Paper Fasteners from Creative Impressions in the holes. Tie 12” of White Glimmer Ribbon around the Winter Wishes panel in a knot. The Glimmer Ribbon and Shimmer Rounds complement each other PERFECTLY! See all the colors at www.creativeimpressions.com.
  • 12. Winter Wishes Card Layer your Winter Wishes panel to the slightly larger light blue Kevin panel. Attach your layered panel to the snowflake card front with dimensional foam adhesive. Your winter greeting is ready to send!
  • 13. Embossed Thanksgiving Card Embossing is so elegant and beautiful that many stampers use this technique exclusively. You’ll love the incredible pearly metallic shimmer of these PEARLustre™ Embossing Powders by Stampendous. If you’ve never embossed before, do take some time to practice. It takes a little skill to master the amount of heat necessary for beautiful results.
  • 14. Embossed Thanksgiving Card Supplies used to make this card: Perfectly Clear™ Stamps from Stampendous SSC1023 Damask Fall SSH34 Medium Acrylic Handle Embossing Powder from Stampendous PK01 Sorrento PEARLustre™ kit or Carnelian, Amethyst, Peridot & Champagne PEARLustre powders VersaMark™ Ink Pad from Tsukineko Ribbon from Creative Impressions Ivory 3/8” Silk Ribbon Card stock from Bazzill Basics™ Nutmeg, Buttercup, Cheddar card stock Adhesive from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L EZ Runner Plus foam adhesive and scissors.
  • 15. Embossed Thanksgiving Card
    • Cut all pieces of card stock needed for card:
    • 1 – 8 ½” X 5 ½” panel of Buttercup
    • 1 – 4” X 4” panel of Nutmeg
    • 1 – 3 ¾” X 3 ¾” panel of Cheddar
    • 1 – 3” X 3” scrap of Nutmeg
    Notice I’ve layered panels on the top of the card, still ¼” larger on each layer, and left the bottom blank for the greeting.
  • 16. Embossed Thanksgiving Card Choose one leaf to start the embossed background. Peel it carefully off of the carrier sheet and place it on the acrylic handle. Ink the image completely using VersaMark™ Watermark Ink, a clear ink with many uses. One thing it does especially well is hold embossing powder in great detail. Stamp your first leaf at least three times, going off the edge. Apply Amethyst PEARLustre™ powder to the stamped leaf images on the card. Tap the panel against the table to dislodge and remove excess powder. Return the excess powder to the jar for a later use. Use embossing heat tool to melt and set the powder.
  • 17. Embossed Thanksgiving Card Embossing Powder in small jars can be easier to work with if you pour it into small containers and use a spoon to spoon it over the stamped images. Then you can tap excess powder directly back into the container. Repeat the process you followed for the first leaf with a second leaf and Peridot PEARLustre powder. Then with a third leaf and Carnelian PEARLustre powder. Heat between each color. To remove stray bits of embossing powder from non-image areas, use a small paint brush. Natural sable brushes will attract powder like a magnet. You can also buy anti-static powder pouches to rub on your paper before embossing to reduce stray grains of powder.
  • 18. Embossed Thanksgiving Card Emboss the turkey on the scrap of nutmeg paper using VersaMark ink and Champagne PEARLustre powder. Cut the turkey out using sharp scissors. Leave a narrow border around the embossed image or it might chip off. The border allows you to be less than perfect in your cutting, too.
  • 19. Embossed Thanksgiving Card Fold the Buttercup panel in half to form the card base and emboss “Happy Thanksgiving” on the bottom front of the card. Use VersaMark ink and Champagne PEARLustre embossing powder. Be sure to catch future lessons to see more of the amazing things VersaMark can do. It’s one of the best things ever to happen to stamping ink! Learn more about it at www.tsukineko.com
  • 20. Embossed Thanksgiving Card Assemble the card by adhering the leaf background to the 4” X 4” nutmeg panel with EZ Runner Adhesive. Cut approximately 14” of the ivory silk ribbon and tie it in a knot around layered leaf panel. Glue the layered leaf panel to the top of the folded Buttercup card base above the greeting. Attach the cut out turkey image to card front, overlapping the ribbon, with dimensional foam adhesive.
