Catherine Pooler Heat Embossing Techniques Videos

*video: Layered Heat Embossing and embossing with water

Did you know you can emboss with water? I didn’t…. Total accident discovering it….. Today I have a video showing you just how its done. But first, we are going to layer different color inks on top of each other, heat setting as we go to see what happens. It’s actually a complete experiment because in some cases, the color I lay down ends up completely disappearing??!

Let’s take a look at the video so you can see how I made this.  You can head over to my youtube channel and watch it in HD by clicking HERE. And if you aren’t a subscriber, I’d love it if you would subscribe by clicking HERE. The exact supplies used are linked below! And I am over the moon excited that Ellen Hutson is now carrying the Catherine Pooler line!!! A match made in heaven I tell you.

A few close ups. It was fun experimenting with different color combinations! I will recreate the butterfly card from yesterday’s blog post as many of you wanted to see the colors I layered on  those butterflies (no heat embossing.) So I’ll be sure and add that to the top of my video list!

It was wild to see that red disappear! All the penny colored dots? Thats from using water! Good old H20!


Ok, last video for the week. You guys have got to be sick of me…… I’ll get back to my regular video schedule now… LOL!
