OCC Clean & Simple-Day 1-Heat Embossing

Today is the first class for the new Online Card Class Clean & Simple 4.  The lesson today focused on heat embossing.  I really liked the technique that Julie Ebersole demonstrated, but I didn't have the materials to make it. :(  I will have to look into that.  I did a  technique demonstrated by Jennifer McGuire.

I used a background stamp and heat embossed the card stock with blue embossing powder (not sure of brand). Jennifer used a lot of colored embossing powders on her card, I don't have a lot of colors but I wanted to try the technique. I used a word die and cut it out twice from heavy card stock and glued them together and then heat embossed it along with two strips of paper.  I assembled the card by using a piece of fun foam cut to the size of the card front and then attached it to the card base.  It is hard to see the glossiness of the embossing but it looks really good. 

Thanks for coming by, see ya soon.....

Supplies used-Hero Arts Lattice-background stamp, Paper Smooches Thanks-die cut, Ranger Platinum-embossing powder. 


  1. You did a great job with the technique! Love your bod gold "thanks"!

  2. Great job! I didn't have the supplies for Julie' technique either, I've had masking paper on my shopping list and keep forgetting it!

  3. Great job with the technique! I don't have very many embossing powders either (only a bunch of neutrals) and my first attempt at Jennifer's technique was a big bust so I'm going to try again. The class are has been a lot of fun so far! Thanks for stopping by my blog, I really appreciate it! :)
