Heat Embossing: Faux Diamonds Technique with Everything Nice Stamp Set

Catherine Embossing, Projects, Techniques, Videos


Yippeee!  I made another video!  I had this card planned in my mind for more than a week, but when I hurt my back, it just stayed in my head.  I was really excited to get to make it yesterday.  (My back still hurts, but continues to improve and today I am getting a massage.  woohooo!) It might be hard to tell from the photo, but the main image piece here was made with the Faux Diamonds Technique. First, I used my Stampin' Write Markers to ink the stamp, then after I stamped it, I inked up my 1 3/4" x 1 3/4" square with the Versamark Ink.  Then, I poured Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder over it, tapped it off and heated it. Heat Embossing Tips:  The "toughest" part of embossing is being able to tell when it's done.  When I am embossing, I watch carefully for the powder to melt.  The color of your ink, embossing powder or paper will change (usually get darker).  When you think it's done, hold it up to the light and move it around to get a good look at it.  Make sure there are no spots of powder on your image.  If the entire area is shiny and not powdery, you're done!  If you see any powder, zap it again with your heat tool.
