Tutorial Tuesday-Utee Brightz

Here we are again–it’s Tutorial Tuesday and I have another fun technique for you to try. Ranger has a new line of Utee Brightz, and for the stamp artists in my area, you will be happy to know that Lasting Impressions carries this line in their store. This technique is quick, and adds a touch of elegance to any card. Have fun!

Utee Brightz
Heat gun

Stamp VersaMark onto the cardstock. You can make the covered surface as large as you like by moving the stamp over the cardstock.


Sprinkle Utee Brightz over entire prepared surface. Next, heat emboss until Utee is melted. Repeat this step by stamping VersaMark over the surface you just prepared, and heat emboss once again. This step should be repeat five times.


After the fifth layer has been added, immediately place your rubber stamp gently onto the melted surface and leave sitting for about 30 seconds. Leaving the stamp for 30 seconds ensures a good embossed image will appear.


Here is the embossed image.


Cut out your image quickly before the Utee is allowed to harden completely. I used my Cuttlebug with a round Nestability. Very gently peel back the area of Utee you do not want to use so that you do not crack your embossed image.


The embossed image is so elegant and adds nice texture. Have fun embellishing with your embossed image.

Be sure to check back on Thursday for a week long “Ways To Use It” series.
