Technique Tuesday – Heat Embossing

By | January 19, 2021

Hi there

Today’s technique is heat embossing. This has got to be one of my favourite techniques. I never get sick of seeing the transformation of the embossing powder once heat is applied to it – it’s so cool.

In my earlier post I used clear embossing powder added on top of an already inked image whereas these projects use coloured embossing powder – white in this case.

White embossing creates a very striking image don’t you think?

Top Left – Blackberry Bliss, Top Right – Granny Apple Green, Bottom Left – Bermuda Bay, Bottom Right – Rococo Rose

These images from the Dandelion Wishes set have been inked in VersaMark then stamped on the Oh So Ombre Designer Series Paper (DSP) then White Embossing Powder has been added on top before being heated with the Heat Tool. By applying heat to the image the powder melts and gives a raised effect. A simple technique but very effective. The sentiment is from Approaching Perfection another FREE Sale-A-Bration item.

After the heat embossing I die cut the image using the Rectangle Stitched dies – these are one of my most used die sets. If you don’t own this set I would highly recommend you adding it to your next order – they are very versatile. I also used these dies to create my Whisper White border mat. The mat measures 10cm x 14.3cm and then I die cut the third largest die from the middle. The sentiment has also been heat embossed on a scrap of the DSP.

And finally the inside – this image is also from the Dandelion Wishes set and just finishes of the card.

I had fun making these cards – what images do you have that you could use with this technique?

Until next time …

    I love these cards very simple and elegant. I love the dies and don’t own any rectangle stitched dies. Maybe I should look into these. Anyway, thank you for sharing these beautiful cards.
