Heat It Up

I held a class over the weekend all on heat embossing and the many ways you can use it in your projects.  These are the 4 cards my guests got to make.  The first one focuses on heat embossing accessories.  If you don't have the right accessory or you want a metallic one, heat emboss it! We used some Versa Mark ink and some white doilies and made our own gold metallic doilies!  
Next up is embossing resist.  Such a fun technique.  We first clear embossed the Tree Rings background then ink over it with some sponge daubers the embossed areas resist the ink, leaving you with a fun background! 
Embossing with tape!  Embossing powder just needs a sticky surface.  Why not let the Tear Tape or other adhesive be that sticky surface.  We did a couple strips of tear tape and poured some Gold Embossing Powder over it and heated it up, for a beautiful striped look.
Finally we did some tone on tone heat embossing with Clear Powder.  This piggy card is so stinkin' cute!  I can't take credit for this one,  I was inspired and CASED this card by Kristine directly.

Thanks for looking, see you soon!!!
