Default Check it out--REALLY cool! :)

I was lucky enough to attend the Stampin' Up! regionals this past weekend and one of the presenters showed a technique where he embossed on a clear button using craft ink and our colored embossing powder. It looked awesome! A lightbulb went off in my head while he was doing his thing and I realized that if I used VersaMark ink after sanding the clear button and then used clear embossing powder, I could get an etched glass effect. Here are two pictures, one is the layout I created and the other picture is the detail shot. Hope it inspires you! The pictures don't really do it justice...it looks SO cool in real life!

I have a question about your way cool button and layout.

Did you sand only in the print pattern type area, or did you sand the whole button, but use the versamark pen to make the print pattern on the button, or did you use a stamp to make the pattern and you sanded the whole button?

I am sure this is as clear as mud, but I guess all I really want to know is the step by step directions since I am a lot muddled in the mind today

Thank you so much!!

Thanks ladies! If I bounced like Julie, I would have been bouncin' when I discoverd this! I was so excited with how it turned out!

Here's what I did...so simple. You sand only ONE side of the button and brush off the dust from sanding (I wipe it on my pants-haha!) Then I inked up the harlequin pattern from the Background Sampler set with versamark and put it with the rubber facing up on my table. I dropped the button, sanded side facing the rubber, onto the stamp. I then pressed evenly until I saw that all of the VersaMark had transferred (you can see when it's inked evenly). I picked the button up by the sides and poured clear embossing powder onto it, blew off the excess, and heated it with the heat tool until it was melted. Don't touch the button for a bit...it will be hot! Then I threaded the ribbon through the button and adhered it with a glue dot that I stuck onto the back side of the ribbon. If you are wondering, the embossed side is facing up...I thought you could see it better that way. You could do it whichever way you prefer, though.

Holy cow! At first I was like "Oh, neat" then, when I saw the close up I was like "Oh my gawd!"



Cool idea. I love Jaron. Too bad I'm married. And so is he. And he doesn't live in Dayton.

Any suggestions on how to keep the button from blowing away when the air from the heat gun hits it without burning your fingers? Or does it sit still pretty well? I have learned to use a clothespin to hold the paper when embossing, but obviously that won't work with a button.

I was thinking of putting a straight pin in one of the holes and then putting the pin into a piece of corrugated cardboard to hold it and keep it from flying away... What do you think????

I like the pin idea I will try that or maybe just using some double sided tape to hold it down on your flat heat resistant surface.

Actually, the SU! buttons are thick and have a lot of substance...they are thicker than normal clear buttons. Mine didn't move at all while I was heating it. I just plopped it down in my Powder Pal and held the heat tool over it until it melted. No shifting, no fuss!

Also, if you have a thinner button that WILL move, I would think that the cardboard/pin idea would work. The tape might get gummy with the heat application and mess up the back of the button.

A pair of tweezers opened and stuck through the holes will hold it stable and is long enough to avoid the heat....
