AECP – Impressive Heat Embossing

The title of my post today is what I hopefully accomplished on my card after watching the 6 videos at Altenew Academy’s “Impressive heat embossing“course, today. I used to be known for my heat embossing when I started making cards but just the basic heat embossing to use as a resist for watercolouring or ink blending.

But after this course, I now know so many other ways of heat embossing. Like the 2 techniques I used today; ombre heat embossing and water splashes heat embossing. For the ombre look, I stamped my “Floral Shadow” stamp from Altenew with Versamark clear embossing ink and added the “Heart Throb” red/gold powder, shook the excess off and added the Tafetta pink, shook the excess off and with the same method, added Emerald City and then Primary Lemon embossing powders from Wow Embossing Powder. I then used my heat gun to melt the powders and set them.

For the glittering splatters around my ombre flower, I followed the method by Svetlana Marchenko and splattered clear water on my card, added the embossing powder & melted it with my heat gun. Unfortunately it didn’t work for me as I didn’t realise my embossing powder, called “Santorin”, is actually Sparkles premium glitter which means it needs glue. So I added spots of glue and added the glitter powder, pressed them in and shook off the excess.

For the sentiment, I heat embossed a strip of paper in gold embossing powder and then diecut the “Thanks” sentiment from Stamplorations and adhered it onto this panel. I then cut it with Simon Says Stamp rectangle stitched die and added a yellow rectangle border on foam adhesive around the diecut panel to finish.

Well I hope you liked my card and I really do appreciate you taking the time to stop by my blog and leave me a comment. Wishing you a wonderful creative weekend!
