Hi everyone! Guess what? Last night I heat embossed for my very first time, ever!
I know, I know, I am a little late in the game but it’s never to late to try something new right?
You know when you hear a new song and love it so you play it over and over again? Well, that it how I am with heat embossing – totally obsessed!
Here is a simple thank you card I made using a flower stamp, Megan Elizabeth Lush Ink & Tsukineko Sparkle Embossing Powder!
Most commonly, you heat emboss with a clear Versamark Ink Pad. Today however, I tried out a technique that our good friend Megan Elizabeth used using her super juicy Ink Edgerz.
To make this beautiful purple sparkly flower I took a piece of scrap white cardstock and stamped my flower in purple Lush Ink. TIP: Make sure your stamp is inked up and juicy so your embossing powder sticks well. Once you stamp your image onto the paper, sprinkle the entire stamped image with the Tsukineko Sparkle Embossing Powder. Shake off any extra powder back into the jar.
Using a heat tool slowly start to heat the embossing powder. Start heating from a distance and slowly move the heat gun closer until you see the powder start to melt. Then slowly move the heat gun over the entire flower until the powder is evenly melted.
Next using scissors, carefully cut out your embossed flower and CHECK OUT THAT SPARKLE!
For some of you who have never heat embossed before, here is a quick video tutorial and a few tips & tricks on hot to heat emboss!
Usually in my projects I make many mistakes and with this being my first time ever heat embossing, I was sure I was going to be doing it multiple times. Pleasantly surprised, I didn’t! All of the products were easy to use and I am super excited to get working on more projects using heat embossing and Tsukineko High Quality Embossing Powders. Did you know you can heat emboss on vellum, glass, paper and more? Oh the possibilities…
Hope you loved the card and have a fabulous day!
