I thought I would share with you a little tutorial on how to heat emboss on fabric. The result is very cool and you can make your designs using stamps that you already have. if you already know how to heat emboss on paper.... then this is cake!
Supplies: You will need a piece of fabric that you are going to use to wrap around your album cover. I used extra pieces of chipboard for my covers and some heavy duck cloth fabric. Versamark-watermark ink, stamps, embossing powder (I used American Crafts Zing powder), and a heat gun.
First cut your fabric to the size of your project (with some allowance on the edges for folding around your cover). To create a "flat" surface on my stamping glass I used clothes pins to hold my fabric taut! Ink your stamp with Versamark and stamp image onto fabric, apply embossing powder, and heat! (I found that by stamping one image at a time and embossing it right away this helped in a more accurate placement of the image. Since the Versamark is clear it works best to stamp and emboss each image separately especially when stamping multiple images!)
Here are a couple of projects using this technique using both light and dark fabric! And also single and multiple stamped images!
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and I hope you will give this technique a try!!
