Today I am showing you how to emboss your handwriting! There are a few different embossing pens on the market, but I am using the VersaMark Embossing Marker. I like this marker because it has a thick brush end and a thin bullet tip. I can use the 2 together to make some great Brush Calligraphy. You simply write out your word and then apply the embossing powder over it and heat it with your heat tool.
Once the powder has melted and cooled, you can apply the marker again and repeat the process. This gives you a nice thick layer of embossing.
Then to complete the card I added Distress Inks onto the background!
Today I am showing you how to do a Coloured Embossing Ombre Design. I started by applying the stamp buddy over the card. This will help prevent the little embossing powders sticking every where. I then stamped my image using VersaMark ink. I used an older Hero Arts stamp. I then apply the embossing powders one at a time, over the card. Heat with your heat gun and you have an ombre design!
Today I am showing you how to achieve a Clear Embossed Ombre design. You start by adding your Distress Inks to your card. I used Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry, Ripe Persimmon and Squeezed Lemonade. You want to let this dry, possibly over night. When you apply the Distress Inks like this they stay wet longer, therefore allowing the embossing powder to stick to them.
Once your background is dry, use your Stamping buddy over the card to prevent the embossing powder to stick where you don’t want it. I stamped using the Simon Says Stamp Falling Hearts background with VersaMark Ink. Emboss using Clear Embossing Powder.
Once your embossing cools you can now go over the entire card using Black Soot Distress Ink. The black really allows the coloured hearts to pop on the background!
I always hear a lot of people asking what is the difference between an Embossing Heat Gun and the Ranger Heat tool. In this video I use both to emboss a stamped image and explain the benefits of both tools.
