Happy Tuesday and April Fools Day!!! That means that I have a fabulous Technique to share with you today and it is no fool!! We will be heat embossing onto Silver Foil!!! It is a super cool WOW look for your projects!
Supplied Needed: Foil Sheets (Silver or Gold), Stamp Set, VersaMark, Embossing Powder, and Heat Tool
First you will cut your Foil Sheets into you desired size and then stamp your image with VersaMark onto the Foil. VersaMark is a clear super sticky “ink” (it’s not really an ink) that is used for heat embossing because when you pour your powder of choice over top it will stick. It is clear so that you can use Clear Embossing Powder or colored embossing powder. NOTE: Be careful when stamping onto Foil, it will slide! Once you have stamped your image, you will pour the powder of your choice over it. I used White Embossing Powder. Then you will melt the powder with your Heat Tool. TIP: Start in the corner and as you see it start to melt, move the tool along. Don’t swing the heat tool around like you are painting a wall. Also, you will need something to hold your foil down (besides your finger) because it will get HOT! Once it is done, let it sit for a minute or less to cool and set. Then you can add it to your project. The foil may curl a bit but as it cools it will flatten out. I used the Mixed Bunch Stamp Set for my flowers and Summer Picnic Designer Series Paper on this sample. The fabulous scallop look on the edge of my design was created with the Adorning Accents Embossing Folders! Super cute way to use this little border and I think that maybe have been the first time I have used that scallop in MONTHS! I hope you enjoyed this technique and try it out on your next project!!!
