How to Emboss Acetate

It’s Tuesday, and it’s time for another tutorial.  This one was originally done several years ago by myself, so I thought it was time to update it, so I can eventually close my old blog.  My stamps are from Mark’s Finest Papers and work well to create a masculine card.  I hope you enjoy this tutorial.

Supplies:  VersaMark, White embossing power, Heat Gun, Ink, Brayer

Ink your background as desired.

Stamp background with ink.

Stamp acetate with VersaMark and then sprinkle with embossing powder.  Heat emboss cautiously.  Be sure to keep heat gun away from the acetate.  Do not allow the heat gun to sit on one spot for too long or you will melt the acetate.

Use brads to adhere the acetate to the background.

New tutorials each Tuesday

Thank you for stopping by:)
