Top Tip Tuesday – Any Colour Heat Embossing. I think I may have shared this technique with you all before, but some techniques deserve a second outing. I think this is one of those.
If you are anything like me, you would like to have embossing powder in LOTS of colours. Well this is the next best thing, and is MUCH cheaper. This technique allows you to have the look of any colour heat embossing, but with only one pot of embossing powder.
The video will explain exactly how this works, but in simple terms, all you are doing is stamping in your chosen colour first and then adding Versamark over the top. The Versamark is the key, as it allows you to add clear embossing powder over your stamping. There are 2 ways to achieve this, and I show just one in the video. This is the version that uses just an acrylic block.
All you do is ink up your stamp with Versamark Ink first, then add your chosen ink to the stamp before stamping on your card. This means that the ink colour goes straight onto the card, with the layer of Versamark being on top of that. The alternative uses the Stamparatus and is simply a case of stamping in your chosen colour first, cleaning the stamp and then over stamping in Versamark. You get the same result, just in two steps.
So, the big question is are you going to give this a try? It really only works on Whisper White and Very Vanilla, but that is often what sentiment stamps are used on. Would you use the Stamparatus method, or the acrylic block method?
