Tuesday Tip…Embossing Buddy

Last week I shared how to make a gusseted bag with the gold Striped Treat Bags.  If you missed it you can click HERE. I heat embossed the tag in gold to coordinate.  Gusseted bag made using the Striped Treat Bags, Merry Little Labels with Everyday Label Punch , and the Holly Embossing Folder by Stampin Up.

I love to heat emboss! Watching the magic happen puts a smile on my face every time. I’ve had a few people ask about heat embossing so I though I would share a couple of quick tips and a cool new heat embossing project kit, Hello Friend.

The Embossing Buddy (103083) is the perfect tool to use when heat embossing. The antistatic pouch helps keep stray Embossing Powder from sticking to your project. Rub it directly on the surface to be embossed and the powder will stick only where it’s wanted.

Here’s another TIP: Rub it on your fingers first!! When we touch cardstock, the oils on our skin get left behind. That residue is exactly what the embossing powder will stick to!! Rubbing the Embossing Buddy over your fingers first absorbs the oil and prevents this from happening.

Heat embossing is so much fun and it really is quick & easy.  You can step up your cardmaking by trying the different embossing techniques with the Hello Friend Heat Embossing Project Kit. Check out this video to see what you get in the kit as well as the cool projects you can make using 3 different heat embossing techniques.

This would be a great project to get together and do with your friends and earn the Merry Patterns Stamp Set for FREE. (See details below.) You can purchase the kit and other products from my online store.
