Online Card Class-Heat Wave Day 3

Day 3 got a little trickier. Lol  It was Advanced Heat Embossing.  There were definitely a few more steps involved.  I chose to do a technique that Kristina Werner demonstrated.

The idea is to use a background stamp (I used SSS Leaves Background) on watercolor paper,   stamping with Versamark then clear embossing powder, heat embossing and then ironing off the shine.  I think I was a little too timid with this step and when it came time to stamp my greeting it didn't show up as well as it should.  I also watercolored the background in several shades of Gamsai Tambi paints, the greeting is from Hero Arts Be Happy Today.  Oh, I added some sequins too.

I am going to try this again soon, and make sure I iron off all the shine.

I am learning quite a lot with this class, can't wait to try out the other techniques when I have time.

Thanks, see you soon.


  1. I am so reluctant to try the iron off technique. Good for you for giving it a try.

  2. Beautiful card, I had trouble getting all of my embossing powder ironed off too.

  3. I think the iron just has to be very hot to get it all off. Love the effect on your beautiful card.


Thanks for taking the time to comment!
