Heat Embossing


Hello and welcome. Today I wanted to talk heat embossing. I never get tired of watching that embossing powder melt. It is like magic every single time.

If you are not familiar with what heat embossing is, let me explain. You ink up your stamp in a special ink called Versamark. This is a clear sticky ink that stays wet for a while. Then you pour a special fine powder over the image. Tip the excess powder back into the jar. You will now see your stamped image has a coating of the powder. Use a heat tool to melt the powder and you end up with a beautiful glossy image just like the one on my card below.

If you are familiar with our range of embossing powders, you will know that we don't have a red powder. So just how did I get red embossing? It's really easy. I used the Stamparatus to first stamp the candles in Real Red ink. Then I cleaned the stamp and stamped directly over the top in versamark ink. I then used clear embossing powder which when melted looks like I embossed with red powder.

Using the Stamparatus along with heat embossing opens up a whole range of embossing colours. It basically means you can emboss in any colour ink we have. I think it's so clever.

You can purchase all the products I used on this project in my online store here.

  1. how come every time i click on the sweetest time bundle, it goes to a wrong turn page and doesn't show me the bundle???? This is very disheartening as I would like to use some of these stamps for my future Christmas cards. Thank you
