November’s Technique Tuesday is Heat Embossing!

Every first tuesday of the month I offer a technique class to give you a chance to try new things and learn more about some of the techniques you have seen in pictures or on samples. This month we will be trying out heat embossing.

With embossing, there are two methods – dry embossing and heat embossing.

  • With dry embossing, you use some type of metal or plastic template with holes cut out. You place your paper over the template and then use a ball-tipped stylus to press your paper into the holes, creating a raised image in the shape of the template.
  • With heat embossing, you stamp an image and then sprinkle the wet image with embossing powder. The embossing powder sticks to the wet ink and when you apply heat with a heat gun, melts into a raised image in the shape of the stamped image.

There are a few different ways you can use heat embossing, whether to create an elegant shape like what is commonly done for wedding invitations or to act as a color resist when adding more stamps or ink to your paper. Join us Tuesday Nov. 4 at 7pm to try it out for yourself. Cost -$5. Email me at stampingwithjennifer@gmail.com for more details.

  1. Had soooo much fun with the heat embossing and LOVE my new stamps. Just realized how tired I was last night…..I left my new punch in a bag I put in the fridge last night. Hope my faux pas doesn’t spoil the punch!
