Using Embossing Powders in Making Cards and Scrapbooks


 
Art and Culture
In the card Making and scrapbooking crafts embossing technique is very popular, as it gives a unique effect on the craft. To get the raised effect on the item embossing powders, rubber stamps, and ink pads are required.

One of the essential items required for making cards and scrapbooks is the embossing powder. It is most used embellishment in craft items as it gives different effects, making the creation to stand out from the rest. Craft enthusiasts consider it to be the most versatile technique to create any item. Some of the different embossing techniques are double embossing, rainbow effect and dry embossing.

Today these powders are available in variety of colors, and textures that bring a very sophisticated look on the craft item. People generally use them to get a raised as well as glittery effect which enhances the beauty of the creation. Many apply this technique on wordings to get the 3D effect.

However to get the raised effect some essential items are required besides the Embossing Powders. One of the very important essential item required is the heat gun that is available in any craft stores. It is used to heat the powders to get the glossy effect. Many people are seen to use iron, but a heat gun gives better effect than them. Stamps are another important item that makes the foundation of the design. Mostly rubber stamps are used in imprinting the design that is readily available in the craft stores in different patterns. Inkpad is a must have item for embossing found in variety of colors. Experts tend to use the same colored ink pad as the embossing dust to avoid the ink from showing up.

The process is not very hard; beginners can easily do it with some guidance. First the scrapbooking or card making paper is wiped out and then the stamp that is inked is pressed firmly on it. This helps in getting the design to be imprinted on the paper. Before the ink is dried up, generous amount of the powder is sprinkled and the excess amount is dusted off after sometime. Finally, with the help of the heat gun the powder is heated from the back of the paper, which gradually starts melting and thus a raised and shiny effect is obtained.

For card making and scrapbooking crafts embossing is the popular technique. So the craft enthusiasts can easily get the essential items for this technique in the craft stores. The online craft stores like Mallee Magic have huge stock of embossing powders and the other required products from the leading brands, which they sell at affordable rates.

Today craft makers by using different colors and textures of these powders are creating wonders. A unique effect is obtained with the help of this technique, which makes the handmade cards, scrapbooks or other craft items simply out of the box.
