On today’s Coffee & Cards with Michelle, we’re heat embossing in Balmy Blue. Think it’s beautiful on the outside? Just wait until you see the inside!￼
If you’ve been crafting with me, you’ll know that I’m a huge fan of ‘less is more’. In this case, focusing on just two colors – Balmy Blue and Whisper White – has a huge visual impact. But, when you add heat embossing in Balmy Blue and White, well now, that’s HUGE!
You can heat emboss in any Stampin’ Up! color. However, it’s crucial to know the correct order. First, you ink your stamp in Versamark. Then, in your ink pad. Otherwise, you’ll ruin your Versamark pad by transferring color directly to the clear Versamark. Finally, sprinkle on Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set. Talk about WOW!
Go ahead…give it a try. Let me know how it turns out.
Today’s card was inspired by one of my Stamping Bee team members, Amy Bryson. Amy was a featured designer at my spring Stamping at the Beach (virtual) retreat. She heat embossed in Whisper White on Balmy Blue using the Grace’s Garden stamp set. It was so lovely, I had to recreate the technique and colors for you today.
