smash - nibs

i believe the nibs are a rubber stamps and it looks like she might have used embossing powder - which is a powder that you sprinkle on the ink, after you stamp the image. then you knock off the extra powder and use a heat gun or super hot hair dryer to melt the powder. it is the same process used on thermography.
i love the stamp...wish i had time to get some and use them.


  1. i think someone sent me a butterfly. if you recall doing so, please refresh my memory and i will do an envelope for you. i found one yesterday in my stash.

  2. I think you are correct about the technique for the nibs, but I bought a small package of them on EBay. I don't have the nib stamp or a heat gun. I think it costs less to just buy the completed envelopes.
    I am not too good at record keeping. Can't remember about the butterfly, but if you can't find the rightful owner, I'll take one for the collection.
