I also took the opportunity to try one of the new products from Ranger - Sticky Embossing Powder. I love the idea of being able to use glitter with my stamps, and this is the perfect adhesive for that! Here's a quick little tutorial:
When you emboss the bag, some of the score lines will be a bit lost, but it's easy to figure out where the creases should be. After embossing, ink over the design to highlight it.
Stamp oak leaf onto center of bag using embossing ink. Cover with Ranger Sticky embossing powder and tap off excess. Melt powder using your heat tool. Make sure your glitter is close by and ready to use!
Immediately cover melted powder with glitter. I used my finger to press the glitter down a bit, just to make sure it was embedded.
When it's cooled, tap off excess. To make sure it's well-adhered, briefly heat it with the heat tool once more. That will ensure that the glitter stays put. Assemble bag and fill as desired.
How pretty is that glittered leaf?! I think that Sticky Embossing Powder will have a permanent place on my desk for sure - I can't wait to try it with more stamps.
