Do you want to try some Heat Embossing?

| Posted in Cardmaking, Host a workshop, Technique focus

Here’s card I made that features some heat embossing.  It is a versatile technique used by scrapbookers and cardmakers alike!

and a little closer

 

For those unfamiliar with the technique you will need an ink like Versamark or Stampin’ Up! s whisper white craft ink, some embossing powder and a heat tool.  The reason why you need versamark or the craft ink is because they are slow-to-dry and give a surface that the embossing powder will stick to.   

The following card has had Heat embossing used in FOUR places. 

1. For the background I have used the POLKA DOT background stamp, Versamark and CLEAR embossing powder.

2. For the word ‘friend’ (from the “Friendly Flowers” stamp set) I have used white craft ink and white embossing powder 

3. For the chipboard accent I have covered the entire piece of chipboard in patterned paper (sanded off the edges) and covered the entire surface with versamark and a coat of clear embossing powder and

4.  I even managed to change the colour of the brads in the centre of the flowers by heat embossing!

If you would like to try out some embossing for yourself- I can help you to order some products that will allow you to include some heat embossing on your scrapbook pages, cards and other projects.  If you live locally I am more than happy to demonstrate heat embossing at a workshop in your home.   Please just get in touch with me (My contact details are available on the “contact details” page)

    That looks great Miriam. Hadn’t thought of clear embossing sections – will have to give that a try. Love your card.

    LOVE the look of this card! The embossing is a great touch, but what I really love, is the felt flowers in the circles. Fab idea!!
