Two Embossing Ways


I recently bought some heat embossing powders, lavender, leaf and silver all from Zing. So i decided to try and see if i can heat emboss on smaller size image on a embossing folder.

I used the lavender opaque finish color on the flowers of my new embossing folder that i bought in Lincraft.

Here is the card I made

I used broken china and crushed olive distress inks (Ranger Tim Holtz) to sponge over the embossed folder. I then used a felted tip pen to sponge up some watermark ink (Versamark) and go over the flowers on the embossed page, I then heat embossed with lavender (Zing - opaque finish). For the first time I think I did pretty well. Need more practice on the smaller images.

Here is a pic i tried to capture the shine of the embossing powder on the flowers before it became a card.

I then made a strip with blue textured paper and stamped a sentiment Best Wishes (Fiskars - home sweet home (rubber stamps)) and I stamped, pencil colored and fussy cut a butterfly (KaiserCraft - bonjour), placed on a pop dot for dimension and shadow. All of that on a blue textured cardstock vertically.

I really love this card, simple, clean, color co-ordinated and very lovely to look at. Love the sparkle of the flowers, the heat embossing really gives a very touch to the card.

I am beginning to enjoy and create with heat embossing, need to get more colors especially the clear embossing powder.

  3. Oh Monika, I love your card. You've inspired me to haul out my embossing stuff and get crafty with it. I have tons of powders that are sitting all lonely in my craft room.

    I just love the soft subtle colours you used. That embossing folder really pops with the distress inks too. Just lovely.

    Thanks for joining us this week at Brown Sugar. Good luck.
