Scrapbook Stamping and Embossing Technique: Gorgeous Rustic Frame
To create today's layout, I have here this frame stamp. Once I stamp this on my paper, it produces this awesome and distinct shape. Feel free to use any stamp that is similar to this. Even a simple square will do as long as its sides have a thick width.
To start, let's mask off the section of our stamp that we don't want to be embossed using a washi tape. This way, I can use a different color of embossing powder on the masked off part later on.
Next, we'll ink up the section of our stamp that's not masked off. What I'm using here is a Watermark VersaMark stamp pad, but you can use any embossing stamp pad you have available. With your stamp pad, make sure you're inking your frame nicely, covering all the intricate details of your stamp.
After you have completed inking a section of your stamp, peel off the mask you have placed into your stamp. With the tape peeled off, you can now stamp the frame onto your paper or cardstock. Make sure to transfer all the stamp's ink into your cardstock by pressing hard onto your cardstock.
Now that you have the watermark ink transferred on to your canvas, you can now put in your first layer of colored embossing powder. I will be using the Gold embossing powder and make sure that the ink on my cardstock is covered well.
With that, we can now heat the embossing powder to make it shine beautifully on our cardstock. After drying, you can see how beautiful it shines!
We now go back to our stamp and start masking the outer section which we covered in Gold or whatever beautiful color you have with you, and start inking the inner section of the stamp this time.
Now that our stamp is inked, let's squidge it right in the middle. After doing that you can now transfer your second color of embossing powder.
I will be covering mine with the Silver Embossing Powder. After transferring your second color, make sure to heat and dry it out before continuing into the next step.
Now, take a look at that beautiful frame!
We're almost done with our gilded frame! You just have to cut out your frame using your scissors for the edges and a craft knife and ruler to cut the insides of the frame where we will put our photo.
Now that you have completed cutting off your frame, you can now place your photo into your Beautiful Embossed Photo Frame.
To make it even better, you can also use pop-up dots on the corners of your photo to let your frame sit above your photo a little bit. What a beautiful page that will be!
