Hello everyone! My blog post for My Cricut Craft Room has to do with using embossing powders on cards! I used Doodlecharms and Paisley along with clear embossing powder for this cute little card! I also used the i-Rock tool for the metal rivets of the basket! I just love that little tool!
You'll see the clear embossing powder was used as an accent on the little red apples and I covered the green apple completely. If you've never heat embossed before, remember a few things:
*The heat gun gets WICKED HOT!
*Use the little pull down foot when not in use!
*DO NOT LET KIDS OPERATE THE HEAT
GUN WITHOUT ADULT SUPERVISION!
*To prevent stray powder from getting heated,
use the little magic embossing buddy pad BEFORE
your stamp the Versa Mark
*(Embossing Buddy is a small "bag" filled with
cornstarch that you swipe across the paper)
I like to heat my images in a small, metal brownie pan.
I also use a wooden skewer to "hold" my paper still.
Heat embossing can be so much fun and adds just a different element to your cards, scrapbook pages and other crafty stuff!
