How To Heat Emboss Any Ink Colour

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – How To Heat Emboss Any Ink Colour

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - How To Heat Emboss Any Ink Colour in colours

Oooo don’t you just love a cheeky cheat method with stamping? I’m a girl who likes to use things to their fullest and while in the past Stampin’ Up! did carry a large number of coloured embossing powders, we now just have 3 metals a white and a clear. But that won’t stop me embossing any colour I fancy!

My video today shows you in detail how to create this look, and it’s so much easier than the method of stamping at high speed and throwing powder on as fast as possible. That’s just a recipe for disaster. And no, you don’t need a stamp aid either….

So I hope you like my video, but as importantly, what do you think of the 5 new In Colours?? Aren’t they gorgeous? Not specifically designed to work together, they are beautiful on their own and in clusters with other colours,

Have a fabulous day today, and share some of your heat embossed creations too!

    (I still need coloured embossing powders for use on dark cardstock and with other media such as polymer clay where the embossing powder is mixed into the medium, but this opens up a world of colour possibilities with light-coloured cardstock!)

    Hi Sam,
    Since you’re putting the ink on last do you need to hurry up to put the powder on?
    Great technique by the way can’t wait to try it.
