Stamping Techniques Blog Hop
Hello! Welcome to our Focus on Stamping Techniques Blog Hop!
For today’s hop, I wanted to talk about heat embossing. It’s always surprising just how much this simple technique can add to a card. I had finished up my Kaleidoscope Cardmaking Workshop on the Go and was looking for a project where I could use up some of my leftover pieces. Here’s what I created:
This technique is so simple but so much fun! I took the “happiest” part of the sentiment and stamped it using our Versamark ink pad and heat embossed it using our Clear Embossing Powder. Then I took a sponge dauber and sponged Pixie ink over the top of the image to make it pop out white. I also used the Pixie ink pad to do some tone-on-tone stamping on the piece of Pixie Cardstock. My last two steps were using some 3-D Foam Tape to pop up the “happiest” part of the sentiment and using my Journaling Pen to add some “wiggle-squiggle” lines around the pieces to help them to stand out.
Now, hop on over to Michelle’s Show and Tell blog to see what technique she has to show you.
