Have you tried to Heat Emboss on your cards? If you haven't, maybe you feel a little intimidated by the process or just don't know where to start? Or don't know the difference between heat embossing and dry embossing (ie: using the Big Shot and Embossing Folders)? Check out this video from Stampin' Up that shows you how to heat emboss with Stampin' Up Embossing Powders and Heat Tool. I think you will fall in love with this technique!
Great Tips from This Video on how to Heat Emboss:
→To create the splotches, you'll take an Aqua Painter filled with water, and just drop a few dribbles of water on there. Then you'll take your Clear Embossing Powder and pour it over the water.
→You'll want to hold the Heat Tool up high enough that you don't scorch your paper and you'll want to move the Heat Tool back and forth to keep the heat moving.
→You can get any color of embossing powder by using our ink pads and clear powder. So you'll want to make sure that the ink pad you're working with is nice and juicy.
→You can heat emboss on vellum.
→The Stampin' Up Heat Tool comes with two settings. And it has a low setting, so that you can emboss on delicate papers like vellum and keeps small die cuts from blowing away.
→VersaMark is great for heat embossing because it stays tacky for longer, so you have plenty of time to pour your powder on.
→The circle used to make the orange from the Orange Blossom stamp set can be stamped on the background to make the little polka dots.
→Use Gold or Silver Embossing Powder to create a faux metal.
→Die cut the Lovely Words Thinlits and use Paper Snips to cut out and use just the die cut word.
→Use two pieces of scrap paper: One is for inking up your image and the other is for pouring on your powder.
→Use a pair of household tweezers to help lift your die cuts out of the powder.
