Brand Ambassador Inspiration - A Heat Embossing Technique


I have three cards to share with you today using a really cool heat embossing technique.

This technique works best with solid stamps. Here's the lowdown on how it's done:

1. Ink all over a piece of card with some bright colours.

2. Stamp all over and heat emboss using clear powder. I used Background Blocks Layered Modern Floral.

3. Ink over the top in a darker colour - I used villainous potion. It's best to choose a contrasting colour for the darker shade to allow the background colours to shine through really well. See where I used the wilted violet with villainous potion on top? Not so good.

4. Polish off the darker colour using a cloth to allow the underneath colours to stand out even more.

5. Use the panel to create a card. Because the wilted violet didn't stand out so well I decided to cut my panel down for the front of my card. I then had enough left over to cut a tag as well.

I finished off the card with a greeting from Birthday Sentiments stamped onto vellum.

The next two cards were created using the same technique. This one uses Framed Florals and a greeting from Simply Said

I masked off round the frame of the stamp before adding in the darker coloured ink so that the outside frame just shows the bottom colours.

I selected blues and greens for my final card and used Background Blocks Cogs. I then die cut the panel into a banner and added some ribbon and enamel dots as well as a greeting from Everyday Sentiments.

Thanks so much for looking today.
