The flowers on this card were embossed using colored embossing powder. The sentiment was embossed using clear embossing powder over pigment ink. The "thread" to hang the sentiment was doen by using an embossing pen (clear) and then colored powder sprinkled over it and heated.

Heat embossing with pigment inks





What you will need:
heat tool
stamp of choice

Pigment Ink Pad

clear embossing powder




Instructions



1. Instead of inking with the embossing ink, ink up your stamp with a juicy pigment ink. Some good ones are stampin up craft inks, versacraft inks, colorbox pigment inks. It's very important that they are pigment inks as dye based inks dry too quickly.


2. After stamping image, sprinkle clear embossing powder on top. This also works well with prisma or glitter embosing powder or frosted embossing powder.


3. Shake off excess and heat with heat tool.

 



Embossing Brads





What you will need:
heat tool
embossing powder (color of choice)
metal brads, any size
something to hold onto the brad (like tweezers, alligator clip, etc)





Instructions



1. Hold onto brad with tweezers (or other tool)

2. Heat brad with heat tool for about 10 seconds

3. Dip heated brad into embossing powder (no ink required, the heat from the brad will melt the powder to the brad)

4. Zap brad covered in powder again with the heat tool (only for a few seconds)
5. Allow to cool (only about 5-10 seconds) before releasing from the tool holding it. It doesnt need to be totally cool, just enough that the newly melted embossing powder doesnt smudge.
