This are techniques shown by stampin Up! each Friday I will post ba different on!

This week we have......

Dry Embossing
1] Secure the Classy Brass template to a light source, such as a light table or a window, with a piece of tape.

2] Rub waxed paper on the surface of the card stock so that the stylus will glide more smoothly and to help prevent tears in your paper.

3] Place the paper or card stock over the template, positioning it so that you'll have the image where you want it. For a raised image on the front of the card, place the paper face down.

4] Using the large end of the stylus tool, press the paper through the open areas of the templates. This produces a raised image.

5] If you want to color the raised image, reposition the brass template over the image on the front side of the card stock. It will act as a mask to protect the flat surfaces around the embossed image. Apply color with a small sponge using Stampin' Pads or Stampin' Pastels.

QUICK TIPMake sure to use the small end of the stylus to emboss small areas or patterns of the design.
