“Wet” and “Heat” Embossing are used interchangeably to describe the method of applying ink and embossing powder to cardstock, then melting the powder to create a raised effect. But now there there is a newer product on my craft table – embossing paste! While it does start out wet, you allow it to air dry to produce a hard, raised surface.
I used both embossing powder and paste on my project today. Both are easy, fun, and rewarding, but you have to plan a little when using the embossing paste. It is better suited for air-drying, so it may take quite a bit of drying time before you are able to complete your project. On my layer of Blackberry Bliss, I applied Shimmery White Embossing Paste through some Colorful Doilies I used as stencils. Then, I carefully removed the stencils and allowed the paste to cure overnight.
For the sentiment, I first inked my stamp with Versamark ink, then in Blackberry Bliss ink. I stamped on a piece of cardstock, applied clear embossing powder, and heated it until fully melted.
Here are the items I used for today’s project:
Here is a final look at today’s project with both wet embossing methods. Now, take the opportunity to head over to the Sisters In Stamping blog to see what the other designers did with their embossing projects!
