Create Your Own Embossed Accents

Being a scrapbooker I am constantly aware of all the beautiful elements out there to buy, but I also know that is should never stand in your way of creating your own elements.

When I sat down to create this layout, I pulled out all my scraps of Lady Pattern Paper and a packet of embellishments I had just floating around. What caught my eye was the butterfly tag – perfect! The only problem was that once my layout was taking shape I needed two more tags just like it to complete the flow and design concept for this page to work.

So no problem – I will just create my own then. And lucky for me I have an entire arsenal full of butterfly stamps perfect for the job.

Creating Your Own Embossed Accents - Butterfly

Here’s how I made my butterfly tags:

Step 1

Cut Lady Pattern Paper to the size you want your base to be. I used the Antique White script for my base. Use your corner rounder and round all four corners of your base.

Step 2

Lightly wipe the paper with an anti-static pad. This will prevent embossing powder granules from sticking to areas where they should not as well as help with finger marks on the paper.

TIP: Oily residue in your fingertips transfers onto your paper and embossing powder will stick to those areas as well. An anti-static pad helps prevent this from happening when embossing.

Step 3

Stamp the butterfly image at an angle onto your base paper using Versamark ink pad for embossing.

Step 4

Sprinkle the embossing powder over the stamped image and shake off the excess powder. Remove stray flecks of embossing powder using a small paintbrush.

Step 5

Heat set the image until the embossing powder is fully melted.

And there you have your own custom designed tag elements that look just like the one from my element pack I had.

To create my layout I used a combination of three patterned papers to highlight the colours in the photos I used. I threw in an extra patterned paper with arrows on it – and look how amazing well the combination works. It just goes to show once again how amazingly well this range of basics work with any patterned paper.

Now it is your turn to create your own embossed accents for your next scrapbooking or card making project.
