Technique Tuesday – Heat Emboss Edging

By | May 25, 2021

Hi there

Earlier this month we had a team training day. It was great to catch up with fellow demos and create projects using new product from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue. The first project I’ll share uses products from the You’re A Peach Suite on page 60-61 and combines them with the Hand-Penned Memories and More Cards and Envelopes on page 127. You get 20 cards and envelopes that coordinate with the Hand-Penned Suite but can be used with other suites or stamp sets.

The card base has this lovely ‘dot’ design on the front and coordinates beautifully with the You’re A Peach Designer Series Paper (DSP). The base panel of DSP measures 3″ wide and the top layer measures 1 3/4″. In between these two layers of DSP is a strip of Pool Party Cardstock which started out at 1 1/2″. To get the ‘uneven’ edge gently tear your cardstock in half lengthwise and then adhere it behind the centre DSP strip. Did you notice the gold heat embossing on the edges of the bottom layer of DSP and the torn strips?

To achieve this look lightly ink the edges with your VersaMark ink pad then cover with gold embossing powder and heat. Before you heat you can brush off excess embossing powder if needed. This easy technique adds texture and colour to your projects.

The ‘Sweet as a Peach’ stamp set has coordinating dies and comes as a bundle (which means you save 10%) or you can buy the whole suite which includes the bundle, the You’re a Peach 12″ x 12″ DSP plus some really cute mini Jam Jars which are food safe.

I hope you’ll give this suite/bundle a second look.

Check back soon for more projects. Until then …
