TIPS & TECHNIQUES: 10 Minute Tool Time with Valerie - Heat Embossing

Do you love the effect of heat embossing in your journaling cards or scrapbooks? 
Heat embossing gives you an elegant finishing and creates the additional interest in your projects.

So how do you heat emboss? 
As I created some embossed Halloween Cards for Rebecca, I thought it would be helpful if I show some how-to photos as well.

so what will you need?

{this is wetter/ stickier than normal ink pads}

{a hairdryer will NOT work as a heat tool gives out heat without blowing air. The air that is blown out of your hair dryer will also blow off the embossing powder off the surface you are embossing on}



what are the steps?

For this project, I first used a paper punch to punch out some rectangular scalloped tags.


I then stamped the image that I wanted to emboss with the embossing ink pad.


Then I poured the embossing powder all over the stamped image. Be sure to use a lot and cover the surface up! 


Don't worry, you won't be wasting or throwing away any access/ extra since... you will shake off the excess embossing powder onto a piece of paper or a funnel tray (if you have one)


Simply pour back all excess powder into the jar/ container it comes in ... and reuse them again and again for future projects! Isn't this amazing?



Once you're done keeping the excess embossing powder, heat the stamped image covered with the embossing powder with your heat gun. As mentioned above, the heat gun is different from the regular hair dryer as it will not blow off your embossing powder during the heating process.


Once you see the color changes as you heat the embossed image, you are done! 
Viola!


Here's another cute little spiderweb image embossed from the Glitz Design Stamps Collection!
