Default How do we Dry Emboss With Stamps?

Can anyone explain to me how to dry emboss with stamps? Thanks so much! Janet

Is there a certain card you've seen using this technique? I think it would be really hard to get an image this way because the rubber would just smoosh down when you apply pressure instead of leaving an imprint. Are you, perhaps, thinking of faux dry embossing where you use punched out images on the same color cardstock to create the look of dry embossing?

What I'm planning on doing for an embossing class I have coming up is to show my customers that they can emboss any of our images. I haven't tried this in real life yet, but in my head, it makes perfect sense....

I'm thinking - if you stamp an image on the BACK of your cardstock, you can simply trace that image with your stylus. (Solid images would probably work best.) So then, the front of your cardstock wouldn't have a stamped image, but it would have an embossed image.

Does that make sense?

Quick - somebody who's not trapped...er, I mean AT work, grab a random stamp and try it!

Or...you can stamp the image on the back of your card stock, using versamark (I think that in time, those lines will fade to nearly nothing). That way you wouldn't perhaps see anything, like a darker ink color, from the back, but there would be enough of an image visible to trace. Then just use a stylist to outline your image, but be sure to do it on a semi-soft surface, like a mouse pad so that your stylist will have some "give"...but don't press too hard or you may tear your card stock. Good luck. I look forward to seeing your results.

Question embossing with stamps

I forgot to mention that while I found a card using this technique, I still do not know how it is done. Help please

This almost looks like it might have been done with a brass template...because the coloring (which I've seen done with stipple brushes and Shiva paint sticks) looks too neat to be done free hand. It is a very cool look though!! Someone should PM the artist and ask the particulars on how they did the card!

That is how I do it - stamp the image on the back then use the stylus to trace it - it works great on metals too

I do this with metals as well...it is so cool. My all time fav set to do this with is festive 4. You can color in the images with permanent markers (sharpies) or paint them with Jacquard/Pearl Ex paints. I buy my thin metal at Hobby Lobby in Silver and Copper...but you can even get colors...red, green, teal, black, etc from Dick Blick. Very "WOW" embossing technique. The first time I did it, I JUST HAD to go find the metal to replicate it at home.

Hi all,

I get that you stamp on the back and use the image as a template but what do you put underneath the paper? Do you have to put the paper on foam or something so that it will give it depth? I would think that craft foam would have too much give and you could go right through the paper.

TFS!

I would think that using craft foam would work. Yes, if you use too much pressure it would go straight through the paper. What I've found is it's easiest to go once over lightly and then go back over a second time.

OK Ladies...Here is the REAL scoop (but all the other ideas you came up with are great too...we should try them ALL) Thanks to Jan TInk! I did PM the artist on how she did her card and this is what she said...

"Basicly, you just stamp, then use your stylus to trace around the image, making an impression into the cardstock (use a mouse pad or the pad from the crafter's tool kit under the cardstock.) Then you flip the cardstock and use the stylus to emboss inside the traced image. You keep flipping it back and forth, embossing from the back and clarifying the outlines from the front until you are satisfied. HTH!"

does anyone save the shirt boxes at Christmas? If you have one, break the box apart. You will have eight strips and two large flat pieces. That cardboard is thin enough to apply pressure on CS with a stylus to get the embossed look. I use the Creative Memories Cutting System Pad, a thin piece of cardboard, CS, and an image from the internet, magazine,etc..
I use the stylus to trace the image onto the CS. remove the image and trace on the CS again. The finished product is a raised imagine or a reversed embossed image. You can then add color with markers, blendable crayons, watercolor. Or leave it plane.

What JanTink said! I love the effect. Here's a tri-fold card where I used this dry embossing technique on the butterfly from Garden Collage that shows through the window:

Hope that helps.

Awwww mannnn, I was going to submit this to SU to see if they'd let me demo it at a Regional. I learned it from a lovely lady about 5 years ago (the way JanTink describes).

Well, I may still submit the idea to them and see if they take me up on it. After all, there may still be some people who don't do SCS (why, I don't know). Dry embossing is so hard to demo with on a screen though...just doesn't show up all that well, especially if the image is stamped too.

I know they actually did this at convention this year. I don't remember the gals name, but I think it was in the Workshop Wows class and I don't know for sure if she did it on cardstock for sure or not, but she did some awesome work with that CS Vellum!! I was so amazed at how much her cards just popped!! I decided to do one myself when I got home, but I guess I never thought about posting it until now. Although mine was done with CS Vellum, you get the same idea!! Love the way that stamped dry embossing looks!! Here's my card: //www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=364478&cat=4653

Well, see? That's what I get for not going to convention!

When I first learned this, the lady that showed me used a Victorian lady, like the kind you would find on a cameo. She embossed it on vellum and it came out looking just like a cameo. It was stunning!

Here's a link to my retro beach wear card I made in May using this same technique. My class attendees had a BLAST trying to get their little bra tops even and talked about size B, C, and D cups. My DH and DS upstairs kept coming down to see what we are all hooting and hollering about.

Susie Miller did the demo at Convention. She used the Beautiful Beach set (among others) and did an AMAZING job. I didn't plan on buying that stamp set but it was the first on my list when I got home. Thanks for refreshing my memory on the technique!

Thumbs up yep - done that....

Yes - janetwmarks's technique is what I have done. I figured that out on my own about 10 years ago - I had never heard of anyone doing that at the time... By trial and error that's the technique I settled on. I use a mouse pad underneath. If you place a piece of waxed paper over the card stock as you use your stylus, you get a better idea if you are pushing too hard before you pierce a hole in the card. A hole is particularly distressing when you are tracing your last little bit - NOT that I would know from experience, mind you...

HI! I've tried stamping the image and then tracing it on a piece of foam hoping for an embossed look. It never did work for me. What I have done that works great is this...

stamp your image on heavy cardstock and cut it out with an exacto knife. Tape the cut out to a sunny window and use it for a template. I did this with "on Gossamer Wings" I thought that it came out pretty good.

....It was a lot of cutting, but worht it!

My sample is in my gallery. (i think) if you'd like to check it out.

here's something to experiment with- wet the cardstock. put it on the carpet, use a heavy outline stamp, and stand on the stamp. then let the image dry. I think I saw this technique in a mag- I wasnt wowed about the outcome when I tried it, but maybe you fine folks will have fun trying this one.

Thank you SO MUCH Janet and Jan (and SCS, of course!) for introducing me to this new technique. I've been dry embossing for years, always loved the way it looks, but would have never thought to try it without a stencil. I tried it, it's super easy (thanks to the clear directions provided) and it gives a really nice raised effect to any stamped image. Yippee!!

Here's my first attempt:

This a different method I learned years ago. Stamps with small areas are difficult to work with. Puffing out to large an area will waken the paper. Different papers will work better than others for these methods.

Water embossing I

1. Stamp card and apply water to the stamped image with a paintbrush.
2. Place image right side up on a soft surface (I use a mousepad) Gently push the paper down using the handle tip of paintbush or stylus.
3. Press image gently with fingertips from the reverse side to puff the paper up.

Water Embossing II
1. Wet a blank piece on both sides by brushing water where image will appear.
2. Place stamp on work surface, rubber side up. Place paper upside down on top of rubberstamp and use stylus to mold paper into and around the stamped image. As paper begins to stretch overall, more pressure may be applied unil designed degree of embossing is achieved.
3. Carefully lift paper off stamp. If hole or tear is created repair by meshing pieces together and smoothing with water. When paper dries the tear will be mended.

Hope this isn't a dumb question. Do you color the image before or after you emboss with the stylus.
Thanks for the help.

On regular cardstock, I color it before. When I do it on cardstock vellum, I dry emboss first, then color with markers on the back, coloring on the front where I want to add more color, using a blender pen (sparingly) to remove color if necessary.

Oh boy, I must be slow, but why do you color with markers on the back, coloring on the front where you want to add more color, using a blender pen (sparingly) to remove color if necessary. I don't really understand this process. Again, thanks for answering all my dumb questions.

Vellum is transluscent, so coloring on the back yields a very pretty, soft effect. If you want more color than what you get from coloring on the back, then you color on the front too, for shading. Sometimes you get a little too much color on there, and that's where using the blender pen (sparingly) comes in. Dab it where you want to remove the color, clean it off on a paper towel, and remove more if necessary. I say sparingly because it can warp the vellum if you get too carried away. I learned this the hard way. Here's a card where I did this technique using cardstock vellum:

I love this technique. People just have to touch it.

I just tried it! It works great! I used the new hostess In the Spotlight. I used my paper piercer pad, it had just enough give. Great technique! Thanks!
