This week on Studio SN on You Tube…Heat embossing on Lazertran!

Note: Lazertran is a waterslide decal paper. It’s designed for photo printing using a home printer—but you can also stamp and ink on it. You can also spray it with a color spray like Dylusions! Once the ink is dry, just soak the paper in water until the liner comes off. You’ll have a beautifully wispy, see-through image that’s perfect for layering. If you look closely, you’ll see the text pattern showing through the palm frond focal on this card.

You’ll need:

Lazertran Waterslide Decal Paper for InkJet Printers

Dylusions: Cut Grass from Ranger

– Palm Frond image from Judikins

Eclectica ESN03 stamp set from Paper Artsy

– White ultra-fine embossing powder

– Heat tool

Watermark Resist inkpad from Ranger

Claudine Hellmuth Multi-Medium from Ranger

– Cardstock: White, green, yellow, black

– Blank card

– Black and white check ribbon

– Shallow container with warm water; lint-free cloth or paper towel

Here’s how to do it:

1. Stamp and heat-emboss the palm front onto a 3 3/4″ piece of Lazertran. Spritz with Dylusions and let dry.

2. Fill a shallow container with water, then soak the Lazertran piece. It will curl up, then start to separate. Slide off the liner, and pull out the stamped piece. Place it onto a lint-free cloth or paper towel and gently pat dry.

3. Stamp the script border onto a piece of cardstock, then cover with multi-medium and glue the Lazertran. Remember to apply only a thin layer of adhesive, something like a coat of nail polish. Let the glue dry, then trim around the outside edge. Mat onto black cardstock.

4. Cut a piece of yellow cardstock slightly smaller than the card front. Stamp the border on the left side of a piece of white cardstock and glue that on top. Add a piece of green cardstock, then the stamped focal. Wrap with black and white ribbon and center on the card front.

That’s it–easy!
