Embossing and Stenciling Supplies

Some of the video classes will cover the very popular heat embossing, and the infrequently used but beautiful dry embossing with metal stencils.

Additional heat embossing supplies:
  • Heat embossing gun
  • White embossing powder
  • VersaMark clear or tinted embossing ink pad
  • Scrap paper, printing/copying paper.
  • Optional, other most used embossing powder: silver, red, black, clear, gold.
Additional dry embossing and stenciling supplies:
  • Two Dreamweaver Stencils - Mushrooms and Koi are used, but you can pick others.
  • Low-tack removeable tape, Scotch Magic removeable tape recommended for a clean removal. 
  • Dry embossing tool, medium tip - shaped like a pencil with ball bearings at tips.
  • Bees' Wax, or a small white candle - to rub on card stock before dry embossing.
  • Glass table & small lamp that fits under the table. (You can buy a light box, but I rarely use mine.)
  • Brilliance tri-color ink pad - Metallic, Peacock, and Aurora.
  • Finger daubers 6-9, several Fantastiques, and 1 large dauber.
These Brilliance ink pads have a shimmery shine, and they go on dry when used with finger daubers.  For coloring over metal stencils, I find the Brilliance ink pads with daubers to be the best, fool-proof method.. Fantastiques (crayon shaped foam applicators) are useful to getting colors into small corners.  Daubers can be used to apply ink to a rubber stamp, and is especially helpful for the middle color in the ink pad.  Use the large dauber to quickly ink up a large stamp.  These three ink pads gives you 9 colors to use for stamping with rubber stamps or for coloring stenciled or stamped images.  They take up less space than carrying 9 full sized ink pads, and saves money too.
