Tuesday Technique: Heat Embossing and Emboss Resist

Heat Embossing:

1] Place your card stock in a Powder Pal tray or over a large piece of scratch paper.

2] Rub the Embossing Buddy across the card stock you want to emboss. This keeps the embossing powder from sticking anywhere but on the ink.

3] Stamp the image with Craft, VersaMark, or embossing ink.

4] Pour powder onto the inked image, making sure that the image is coated completely.

5] Shake off excess powder into the tray and funnel it back into the container.

6] Heat the stamped image only until the powder changes to a shiny liquid and rises.

7] Allow embossed image to cool.



Emboss Resist:

1] Follow steps 1-7 above, using Stampin' Emboss clear embossing powder.

2] Apply ink with a sponge directly to the paper over and around the embossed image.

3] Wipe the embossed image with a tissue to remove the excess ink.


QUICK TIP:
Avoid overheating the powder and burning the paper when working with a heat tool.
