Tooth Fairy with Embosed Button Tutorial **Scrapbook kits by Scrap with V and Frosted Deisgns**

I got to play with this wonderful kit from Scrapbook Kits by Scrap with V this month.  It is full of tons of wonderful bits a bobs of all kinds.  So go check them out and if you like my layout, you can buy the kit to create it yourself!!

The picture is of my son Morgan.  With in 2 days he lots his first two teeth.  He was so proud he showed everyone his gap, he felt like such a big boy!!  His Grandma Marty had given him a tooth fairy pillow in the shape of Texas, with a little heart pocket on it to place the tooth.  The tooth fairy came and left a little note and 4 quarters for both times he placed his tooth under his pillow.  He was so excited and came bouncing into our bedroom with money and note in hand that the tooth fairy came!!
I found this wonderful layout in one of the latest scrapbook magazines and I had to lift it.  I added the buttons to the kit from my stash, and below is the tutorial on how to turn them from plain to a fun mottled color by embossing them.  Frosted Designs in have a fun challenge this week to use dry/heat embossing.  So head on over and join in the fun!!

Embossed Button Tutorial
1) Supplies - buttons, heat tool, embossing power, tweezers, and pigment ink

2) Press the button into the ink and make sure that there is a good coat of ink on the button so the embossing powder will stick.

3) Coat the button with embossing power (I used clear since I used brown ink).  Using your tweezers hold the button and heat it with your heating gun.  Make sure all the powder is melted.  It will bubble and swirl the ink around on top of the button, that is the effect you want.  Let the button cool and use as normal.

4) you can play with all kinds of colors of ink, buttons, and embossing powders to create tons of fun colors.  You can even double dip with a second color to create a 3 tone effect if you want.

 Have fun with this and I hope you get some fun results!!
