Heat Embossing The Beginner's Wow Technique

Heat Embossing is one of those beginner stamping techniques that deliver a whole lot of Wow, but it is surprisingly easy to do.

Today, we are embossing on vellum, but you can Heat Emboss on any paper.  Start by rubbing your paper with a dryer sheet or embossing buddy to prepare the surface.

Next, stamp your sentiment or image using VersaMark ink.  VersaMark is a sticky ink perfect for the Heat Embossing Technique.

Sprinkle Embossing Powder over your stamped image and tap off the excess.  I used gold Embossing Powder.

Heat with Heat Tool to melt all the Embossing Powder.  Wow!

Finishing This Card In 3 Simple Steps

Do you remember the first time that you touched your inked stamp to paper and how awestruck you were at the beautiful image that you created?  Do it again when you stamp this gorgeous peony with Rococo Rose Ink.  Then wrap your embossed vellum piece around your peony.

Stamp a few smaller peonies across the bottom of your 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" Rococo Rose Card Base.

The pretty gold in the background is simply a piece taken from the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper.

The punched circle windows allow the adorable sloth and handsome giraffe to peek to the front of the card.  I created the wood panel using In Good Taste Designer Paper which is on sale through Saturday, October 31.

Behind the window we can see the full picture of Mr. Sloth and Mr. Giraffe.  It's also the perfect place to slip in a Get Well sentiment.  The "sending well wishes your way" stamp is from the Dandelion Wishes stamp set.

Watercolor Technique Sympathy Card


Winter Woods Stampin' Up!

Watercolor Technique for Cards


Winter Woods Stampin' Up!
Hello Friends, 

Making Sympathy Cards is tough but this Watercolor Technique is beautiful. Who says Sympathy Cards need to be boring? After completing the watercolor technique, I stamped winter trees from the Winter Woods stamp set to finish my scene.  Then, I layered the whole thing with In Good Taste Designer paper and other fun card elements.

Winter Woods Stampin' Up!
Watercolor Technique for Cards

Spritz watercolor paper to get it damp, then using a water painter swoosh layers of Mango Melody, Melon Mambo, and Rich Razzleberry inks.  Hint: be sure to overlap layers of ink.  Keep applying ink until you are satisfied.  Completely dry using heat tool or set aside and come back later.

Next, with your fingers splatter water droplets across your watercolor.  Let sit for a few minutes, then blot up excess water.  Allow to completely dry.

Dip water painter in a bit of Soft Suede ink then flick your painter with your finger to make splatters.

After the watercolor and splatters are completely dry, stamp your winter trees using Early Espresso ink.  Hint:  Stamp using the Stamparatus for a great stamped image.
