How To Heat Emboss
Take your rubber stamp crafts to the next level with heat embossing - an amazing technique that adds dimension, texture and a professional finish. The perfectly design heat embossing tool melts color or clear embossing powder enhancing the look of your rubber stamped designs.
- Ink your rubber stamp using pigment ink color (even clear!), then stamp onto paper. Try stamping onto gift tags, note cards and envelopes.
- Choose an embossing powder color and sprinkle generously over the wet ink.
- Pour off the excess embossing powder (put back into embossing powder container to re-use) to expose your stamp design.
- Using the heat embossing tool, move slowly across your stamp design melting the embossing powder. This will create a raised, glossy or sparkly stamp impression. True magic!
