Stamping on Plastic Elements

Hello All,
Here's a tutorial for you so that you can incorporate your images into you projects in a new way!

You Will Need:

A plastic element of some sort (I'm using TH fragments with the tag hanging bit)
A permanent black ink (I'm using Memories)
Your favorite Bombshell Stamps image (I'm using one of the swallows from Love & Luck)
Glossy Accents by Ranger
Alcohol-based markers (I'm using Copics.)
A heat tool
Your favorite accent paper
Emery board
Thread or cord or a jump ring, if you wish

Start out with a clean plastic surface of your element.
Stamp your image.

Heat dry with your heat tool. (Be wary of melting the plastic!)

Whip out your copics! I'm using B34; R08; and YR04 to color my swallow.

Have fun coloring!

Layer colors if you like for more opacity. I have chosen to add B24 to my bird to add more depth. I found that with Copics on these fragment bits, particularly with the lighter colors, a series of small dotting actions as opposed to swipes work best for depositing the color.

Dry in between layers of color with the heat tool.

When you're finished, apply a small amount of Glossy Accents to the back of the element and lay it down on your paper. I chose a basic white for this image because I wanted to show of the image colors.

Cut out and file the edges with an emery board.

You now have a fabulous new way to add Bombshell Stamps to your projects!

Hope you enjoyed this tutorial and you give it a whirl. Its so much fun!



  1. Simple and words to praise you work....

  2. What a neat idea to add the glossy accents. I think it gave it the look of porcelain instead of just a piece of plastic!!

  3. I just have no words to talk about it..anyway i wish to use same for plastic cards to make it's look more better and eye catching.

  4. that's such a great IDEA!!! you can totally make your own Christmas ornaments! =)
