Technique Thursday

Heat Embossing 

Technique A:  Heat Embossing
1]   Place your card stock in a Powder  tray or over a large piece of scratch paper.
2]   Rub the Embossing Buddy across the card stock you want to emboss. This keeps the embossing powder from sticking anywhere but on the ink. 
3]   Stamp the image with Craft, VersaMark, or embossing ink.
4]   Pour powder onto the inked image, making sure that the image is coated completely. 
5]   Shake off excess powder into the tray and funnel it back into the container.
6]   Heat the stamped image only until the powder changes to a shiny liquid and rises.
7]   Allow embossed image to cool. 

Technique B:  Emboss Resist
1]   Follow steps 1-7 above, using Stampin' Emboss clear embossing powder.
2]   Apply ink with a sponge directly to the paper over and around the embossed image.
3]   Wipe the embossed image with a tissue to remove the excess ink.
Avoid overheating the powder and burning the paper when working with a heat tool.
