This was going to be a video but I didn’t get organised till late so I’ve done a quick photo tutorial for those of you that asked for one. Apologies for the bad lighting.
You can either punch out or draw the shape of the button you want out of chipboard or card. I tend to draw mine freehand because I am always in a hurry lol.
You will need your punched/cut shape, a small pattern/text stamp, dye ink pad and blending tool, Versamark (or similar) ink pad, UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Powder), a 1/8th” punch or a pokey tool to make the holes for the button, tweezers and a heat gun.
Stamp the pattern/text on your shape and ink the edges. Punch out two holes
Press the shape onto the ink pad and coat with UTEE. I find holding the shape with a tweezers in the two holes helps to keep the holes clear as the UTEE melts and also saves burnt fingers lol. See how chunky that UTEE is?
Heat the UTEE till melted. Don’t worry about the patches that have no UTEE on, by the third application of ink and UTEE this will smooth out.
After the 3rd coat the button is lovely and domed and shiny (except this one has my grubby fingerprints all over it because I didn’t clean them off before I took the last photo hence it not having the lovely glossy shine that it does have after a quick rub with a cloth!)
