Embossed Fiesta Print Leather Cuff - Clearsnap

Embossed Fiesta Print Leather Cuff Tutorial by Dana Tatar

Hi! I'm sharing a piece of jewelry that I created for Clearsnap today. Adding character to a plain leather cuff is easy and fun with the Clearsnap Fiesta Queue and Clearsnap Embossing Powder. This fun statement piece will brighten up my wardrobe all Summer long!

How to Color a Leather Bracelet with Pigment Ink by Dana Tatar

Step One: I used the Altenew Modern Beadwork Stamp Set to create a stencil for inking the leather cuff. I stamped one design onto a piece of scrap cardstock three times and then cut the center stamp out of the cardstock to create a guide for inking. This template ensures that my colorful design will be the same size down the entire bracelet. I then used the Clearsnap Colorbox Fiesta Cat's Eye Pigment Ink Queue to add vibrant color to the leather cuff.

Step Two: The generous drying time of pigment ink makes it great for embossing! I covered the inked bracelet with Clearsnap Clear Embossing Powder and applied heat to seal the color. Note: This step is a must! Pigment ink is not permanent until embossed!

Step Three: Use the same stamp from Step One, with Colorbox Dragonfly Black Pigment Ink, to add a beadwork pattern to the bracelet. I chose to stamp the blue segments of color.

    1. Hi Liz. I purchased the charm as is from Michael's. The leather cuff is from Blue Moon Beads. I found the charm in the same section, but it may not be part of the Blue Moon Beads collection. Thanks for stopping by!
