There are lots of fun examples and heat embossing techniques in this jam packed video along with a handy DIY embossing tool that will keep your hands in the safe zone. So make sure to watch so you can see all techniques in action.
The first technique is the multi colour heat embossing and it was used to make the backgrounds for these two cards. Both are a bit similar but different as the left card has the the multi colour background on top of the double note card. The card on the right has the embossed part behind the florals.
To colour the background Sizzix embossing powder was used, this is a super fine powder that has a very subtle sparkle in it. I used a combination of Sizzix Embossing Powder Primrose ( SBC | SZZ | SZX ), Banana Blast ( SBC | SZZ | SZX ) and Mango Tango ( SBC | SZZ | SZX ).
The cardstock was from the Sizzix – Making Essentials Collection – Cardstock Sheets ( SBC | SZZ | SZX ) with 80 sheets of A4 size cardstock and a pretty collection of colours that can be combined. A great starters pack and basic pack to have in your stash.
Two more cards with embossing accents added in different ways. The gloss and sparkle from the embossing powder gives such a great contrast to the matt colours of the cardstock.
Here you can see some more embossed accents, but a bit more in the background, on both the leaves and behind the flowers to fill the open spaces.
I used Sizzix Mermaid Kiss Embossing Powder ( SBC | SZZ | SZX ) and Agave ( SBC | SZZ | SZX ) for the leaves. To the back of the flowers I added a piece of card embossed with Purple Dusk ( SBC | SZZ | SZX ).
On the background little splats of colour were made with Sizzix Embossing Powder Mint Julep ( SBC | SZZ | SZX ), Primrose ( SBC | SZZ | SZX ) and Banana Blast ( SBC | SZZ | SZX ). Another fun way to use embossing powders.
This sentiment was made with Tim Holtz – Thinlits Die – Alphanumeric Label ( SBC | SZZ | SZX ) using the cut out letters this time and I added on a white strip with a same colour mat as the card base.
You can see the little splats of colour that add a fun touch in the background.
