All The Good Things - Delayed Embossing Koi Thank You Card

Hey peaches! I'm so excited to share a fun and easy technique with you today! I like to call it "Delayed Embossing" and I'll explain why in just a moment. For this technique, I'll be using the All The Good Things Stamp Set, specifically the koi fish in the set. 

All The Good Things Clear-Mount Stamp Set

For this technique you will also need the following supplies:
  1. Memento Black Ink
  2. Another Non-Pigmented Ink (I chose Mango Melody Ink)
  3. Sponge Dauber
  4. Clear Embossing Powder
  5. Heat Tool



I begin by inking up my koi fish stamp in Mango Melody Ink. Then I use my Sponge Dauber to add the black ink onto a few areas of the fish. I huff on the stamp to re-moisten the ink and stamp my image. Now here's where the "delayed embossing" part comes in. Give you stamped image about 5-10 seconds (this time will depend on your area's climate) and then add Clear Embossing Powder all over the image. Then heat set it. I love that when you use Clear Powder you can still see the gorgeous stamped color still.


 The juicier parts of the stamp, or the parts that had the most concentration of ink will still be a bit wet and cling to the powder, allowing just some areas to be embossed.  


You can see in the close-up image above the cool, shiny effect. I thought this was perfect for a fish image and almost looks like his scales are shinning from the water. 

I hope that you have enjoyed this technique and will give it a try. It's so easy and produces such fun, unique results that will bump your projects up with such a "wow" factor. Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you next post!



Don't forget! You can find me on Instagram and Facebook! Happy stamping!
