Welcome to my ABC’s of Stampin’ series. Today I am going to share the magic of heat embossing. It is fun to do and really steps up your project with just a few simple steps.
I have used this card design many times. (What can I say, I love circles!) This card is another example of taking a “formula” that works and going with it. The Layering Circles Framelits made it quick & easy to cut out the circles. I pulled my colors from the Designer Series Paper, Affectionately Yours. I love the copper foil in the print so I used the copper embossing powder to heat emboss my sentiment from the Perfectly Wrapped stamp set. I popped up the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I love the In Color mini striped ribbon and just tied a simple knot and adhered the ribbon on the back. The Night of Navy cardstock is emobssed with the Petal Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and adhered to a Crumb Cake card base. I lined the envelope flap with matching DSP to complete my card. Happy Day!
Watch this quick video from Stampin’ Up! to see how to turn stamped images into glossy raised designs with heat embossing!
Remember those curvy keepsake apples I made during my Back to School week? I heat embossed a tag with white embossing powder on black cardstock before giving them to my student helpers.
Here’s another card I made using the heat tool and gold embossing powder. You can click on the image to see the details.
