Grateful Heart - Triple Embossing


Hello Friends

I hope you all had a good week :) I am so glad it's almost the weekend yay :) I have been working on this card over the last few days. I have wanted to try this triple embossing technique for such a long time. I was reminded of it in a craft magazine I had bought and I thought ok I am gonna do it this week :)

So this where you basically heat 3 layers of embossing powder and stamp your stamp right in to the image. I will give you a step by step I took these pictures at night so they are a little dark but you will get the idea.

You want to Versamark a section of card. I did mine on paper but I would advise card to take the weight of the embossing powder as it does get quite heavy. Sprinkle your embossing powder and heat, allow it to cool  and repeat this another 2 times.


When you are finished heating the 3rd layer immediately take your stamp and press it into the melted powder. Leave the stamp in for a few minutes until it has cooled. Otherwise it will take off the not yet set embossing powder and it will be left behind on your stamp. You may need to play around with this. I stamped way too hard the first time this is my first impression.



 So I just reheated the embossing powder and stamped again much lighter. I did this several times cause I am perfectionist lol I absolutely love the effect you get from this. Whatever you do DO NOT TOUCH the melted embossing powder it is like molten lava on your fingers and it HURTS :)

So once this was set I just cut out my butterflies and mounted them on to my metallic purple paper and created the rest of my card by layering. I stamped the sentiment in the same gold embossing powder to match.

Thanks so much for stopping by xox
