Project #10: Embossed Magnets


1. Stamps:
KI-A20 Klimt Swirls
Sentiment (Inkadinkado)

2. Ink Pads:
Memento Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko)
VersaMark Dazzle Frost

3. Others:
UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel) by Ranger
Heat Gun
Silver Leafing Pen (Krylon)

Doesn't your fridge love some fancy magnets?
Try these using the supplies listed above.

All you have to do is:

1. Ink the Stampboard (or a piece of unfinished wood) with VersaMark and heat emboss with UTEE of your choice.
Repeat 1 or 2 more times.

2. While the last layer is still hot, stamp a image of your choice and press it down.
Leave the stamp until the UTEE cools down. Then, gently remove the rubber stamp.

3. Ink and stamp a sentiment.

4. With the silver leafing pen, paint the sides of the Stampboard for a finished look.

P.S. You may paint your Stampboard (or piece of unfinished wood) before you start the embossing process...depending on the pressure you use, your background might show up like in the copper magnet, which was painted green (magnet on the left).
