Cardmaking, Essentials By Ellen

Take your cards to the next level with Heat Embossing

Do you love the magic of heat embossing? Do you still get that ‘wow’ feeling when it melts and adds that something special to your card? We do too, and Design Ambassador Ardyth is here today with lots of ways to use heat embossing to take your project to the next level!

Hi! Ardyth here and I hope you’re enjoying the first week of our Summer of Stamping feature!

Today, I’m using the exclusive Lawn Fawn S’More the Merrier set to create a couple of really fun cards with lots of heat embossing on them. I also experimented with Zig Art & Graphic Twin markers to create a night sky!

I used clear, translucent and opaque powders in different areas and for different reasons and I’ve got a video to show you all the details, and to give you some ideas for adding embossing to your cards!

    Love both of your cards. The sparkle you added with embossing really makes your cards extra- special. It is nice to know I am not the lone loser of tiny pieces! The dot for the “I” is my specialty. I even lose it when I try to be careful. Of course, the marshmallow filled in nicely.

      LOL! I am also glad to know I’m not alone. Yes. I often use gems instead of the dot for the i! lol! Thanks so much!
