*Video: 5 ways to heat emboss

Today, I have a video showing you 5 unique ways to heat emboss. Remember the card I made for the Wow blog hop a few days ago?  The first technique in the video shows you how I made that card! 🙂 Let’s check out the video! Don’t forget to subscribe and click on that notification bell!

Let’s take a close up look at each of the projects.  First up, is painting with embossing ink refill/reinker. The organic paint strokes and the texture from the heat embossing is so pretty! I also use a second technique on this card! Heat Embossing with WATER! See the gold? That’s water splatters with embossing powder over the top. Make sure to watch the video on how to heat emboss with water! There is a trick to it.

So: Painting with Embossing Ink refill/reinker and heat embossing with water are the two techniques in this card! I love it.

Next up is probably my favorite card of the bunch. Acrylic Block heat embossing! Yep. Those circles? From an acrylic block!

I love this card. I also added some heat embossed elements to the flower by adding the embossing reinker to the flower with a small paintbrush and then heat set.

The 4th technique is rainbow heat embossing with ink pads! I figured more people might have colored ink pads versus colored embossing powders so I wanted to show how you can achieve a rainbow heat embossed look with inks…. You could also create an ombre look by changing the colors of inks you use.

A forgotten technique is adding score lines to your cardstock! I love the look it leaves behind….

The 5th and final technique I’m sharing today is partial heat embossing. In the video, I also illustrate how to cover up a sentiment mistake!


So what do you think? What is your favorite technique? Do you have a heat embossing technique to share that I didn’t feature? Leave me a comment!!!!!!! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a HAPPY FRIDAY!
