This is Kelly here and I have a "That's How Thursday"
tutorial for you today on
Using Ippity stamps to Dry Emboss!
Did you see my card for today's Hop?
It uses dry embossing instead of stamping with ink.
And here is how I did it!
On a piece of cardstock, stamp an Ippity image that you would like to dry emboss. I have used the butterfly from the Now and Always set. The ink you see here is the black Hybrid ink sold by Ippity.
Using an exacto knife, cut away the inside parts of the image. Be sure to leave small pieces of card stock still attached between the different parts of the stamp.
Here you can see all the parts cut away. Next I placed the cardstock template that I created onto a lightbox. If you don't have one, you can also place it up to a window and allow the sun to shine in from behind it.
Using the piece of paper that you want embossed, turn it over with the top side turned down and position it where you need it to be.
At this point for easier embossing, you can place a piece of waxed paper over your paper. Using a stylus, trace around the inner edges of the template. It will cause a depression in the shape of the stamp that when turned over will be embossed!
Here is a view of the embossed image. See how it is raised and takes the shape of the stamped image?
To help the embossed image have better dimension and be seen better you can consider using chalk or inks on the embossed edges. Here I have added chalking to the image.
And here is the completed card!
For more details on how I made my card, you can visit my blog post HERE!
