How to Heat Emboss 101
Create your own custom stationery for any occasion. It makes the perfect gift for a friend or hostess. This is a VERY simple project perfect for a beginner stamper. If you are more experienced you could add some fun elements to any of these cards . However, I believe that sometimes simplicity is A OK.:)
Start by gathering your supplies:
White Embossing Powder (or color of your choice)
Versamark Stamp Pad
Rub the embossing buddy across the surface of the card stock to prepare for embossing steps. This will help eliminate any extra embossing powder from sticking to the card stock.
Ink your stamp image using Versamark Stamp pad and stamp image onto card stock to create a tone on tone water effect. This is what the embossing powder will stick to. It’s a slighty sticky ink that creates a great bond.
STEP 3 & 4
Pour your embossing powder over the surface of your stamped image. Shake off excess powder and heat set using the heat gun by directing the heat onto the powder image. Once the image starts to appear glossy move the heat gun until the entire image is embossed.
Now once you have embossed your favorite greetings on a rainbow spectrum of card stock cards. You can bundle them up for cute gift. Sure to make someone very happy.
