How To Heat Emboss With Embossing Powders And Heat Gun

Posted by SarahA

I've put together a short video on the basics of heat embossing. Heat embossing can be fun to make your own custom embellishments or for adding some extra oomph to your stamping projects. And as a disclaimer, I do not claim to be a videographer by any means! LOL! I just thought it would be easier to show you how to do the basics by video rather than by a bunch of photos.
In the video, I show how to add emossing powder to chipboard butterflies. You can use this same idea to change up the color of chipboard alphas or any other shapes you have. You can stamp on transparencies with the Perfect Medium and emboss that as well for a one-of-a-kind embellishment. 

If you need a heat tool (and can't borrow your husband's!), you can get one here in the ACOT shoppe, too.

Here is a scrapbooking layout where I used the UTEE and Perfect Pearls in Biscotti to more of the butterflies.
