Heat Embossing

Iron Off Embossing and Gelatos

I’ve seen Jennifer McGuire do it countless times, but for some reason I was afraid. First of all, I like NEVER use an iron. Wrinkled clothes? I pop them in the dryer on the dewrinkle setting, lol! But after trying my hand at a shaker tag for the first time, I though let’s give this technique a whirl too. It was sooooo easy, just like she said! 

To start, I heat embossed this background stamp (which is amazing by the way) in clear… And then I applied two shades of pink gelatos and blended with a baby wipe… Then using my iron (I have since bought a cheap iron off of Amazon for $9 just in case hell does freeze over and I need to use an iron on my clothes) with a towel on the floor then card panel and then typing paper over the top of the panel, I ironed off the embossing powder. I thought pairing it with Simon’s Mint line would look pretty so I stamped the fun sentiment in Mint and then used the coordinating Mint Card stock to tie it all together…

Pretty simple and definitely easy to mass produce if you wanted to. Thanks for stopping by today!
