My Adventure with Embossing!
I want to start by saying that I have seen so many people on Instagram that are posting videos and pictures of them embossing notebooks, glasses, cards...etc I really wanted to give it a shot so I splurged. I went out to the art supply store and bought some supplies! I will only be showing you a couple of things for now.. more to come soon! ;)
So I ended up purchasing these items online actually because I could not find them anywhere and I have heard so many great things about them, and I am glad I got my hands on them!
So I ended up purchasing two Ranger Emboss it pens 2 pack one clear and one black ink, and a copper super fine embossing powder. I also bought the heat tool at my local art supply store for $30.
This is what It looks like with the embossing powder sprinkled on top. I just turned the paper and let the excess fall off. The white powder is actually cornstarch, it prevents the powder from sticking to the surface without the glue to make for a clean finish. On the top I used the black ink marker and on the bottom I used the clear ink marker. You can see a difference.
This is the heat embossing tool that I purchased at my local art supply store. It works great and I have zero complaints about it! It has a long cord as well so you can plug it in and put it wherever you like, and the best part is that it comes with a built in stand so you don't have to worry about burning anything when you set it down (it gets very very hot!)
There you have it, I love the finish of embossing powder. It is raised and gives nice texture and shine to a card. I took this picture with my phone so unfortunately you don't get a good reference of the copper colour, but I will say its amazing in person. I just used it on a paint chip, hehe :)
Overall I have to say that I am very impressed because I have tried multiple other glue pens and applications and this one is overall my favorite outcome. Nice and smooth.
I also would like to mention that this is so much fun to do and the possibilities are endless! You can personalize almost anything, I have been making personalized birthday cards for people I know, or you could even personalize a mug or a notebook cover...etc You can get any color embossing powder that you can imagine. They even come in matte and holographic and much much more!
I cant wait to show you what is to come in the future because I am having a blast with all of these new supplies I picked up!
If you have any cool ideas you would like to see done I would love to hear from you!
