Today I am going to show you how to make a sentiment look 3D. It works so awesome when having to mail since it is flat.
I used Inspired By Stamping Festive Greetings to make my tags. See below for all other products needed to make this project.
Here is the finished project:
I made tags, but this will work for any sentiment project.
To acheive this look, here are the steps;
Step 1 & 2 – Stamp sentiment in any color you want. Using Versamark, re-stamp just down and to the left a little bit. Using Versamark again, re-stamp the original sentiment over the top.
Step 3 – Emboss with clear embossing powder [ forgot to take photo – whoops]
Step 4 – Stamp on the light image, and again, re-stamp with Versamark and emboss with clear powder.
Step 5 – Using a sponge applicator and a lighter color [I used Distress Tumbled Glass], sponge all over the tag. This will bring out the “3D” effect, and not cover the colored lights [hence the embossing with clear powder].
Step 6 – To add some pop to the tags, I took a self made stencil, and using the same color Distress ink, I sponged over the stencil.
Once done, I took a paper towel and wiped off the embossed area. [This will take off any ink that might be there,]
My tags are done!
I hope you try this fun technique, it has such potential for projects/cards. I am sure I will be using this in the future on an actual card too.
Until next time~
