Let’s explore heat embossing. Heat embossing is one of my all-time favorite things to do when I’m card making. It’s a simple but extremely fun and rewarding technique.
There are so many tricks and ideas for this technique and we are going to explore a few of them.
HEAT EMBOSSING TIPS
On this card, I clear heat embossed the Early Espresso die cut words and clear heat embossed over one of the cookies. I added gold metallic embossing powder to the “cookies” sentiment and fussy cut the image out.
Embossing techniques to try:
+ Clear embossing on colored cardstock
+ Clear embossing multiple layers to make a glossy finished accent for your card
+ Simple metallic embossing of sentiments
+ Watercoloring inside embossed images
+ Ink blend and emboss over the ink blending and then ink blend again for a two-tone effect
On this card, I used the emboss resist technique. I first covered the Sprial Dye large background stamp with Versamark ink and stamped it.
Then I white heat embossed the image. Next, I ink blended a rainbow pattern over the embossing. Last I used a paper towel with a touch of water to wipe away the ink that sat on top of the embossed image.
