Embossing powder comes in so many colors it’s hard to choose just one. But who says you have to choose just one anyway? Follow the steps in this tutorial and you’ll be multi-color embossing in no time.
You’ll need an acrylic stamp and block, black and clear embossing ink, printer paper, cardstock , scissors, embossing powder, and a heat gun.
Step 1: Stamp the image on the printer paper multiple times.
Step 2: Choose the color you want for each portion of the image. Cut each stamped image so only the area that corresponds with each color is removed. This step will create a mask for the areas of the stamp you do not want to use.
Step 3: Stamp the image onto cardstock in a visible color. I used black so it was easier to line up my image.
Step 4: Clean the stamp and re-ink with clear embossing ink. Place one of the masks you created on to the cardstock and stamp, lining up the images carefully. Sprinkle with embossing powder, shake off the excess and heat, then let cool.
Repeat step four for each color of embossing powder.
Finally, post your delightful project on the ScrapbookSteals Facebook page and rake in the compliments. It’s that simple!
Can’t wait to see what you create!
