Heat Embossing Techniques

Heat embossing techniques were the focus of my recent Facebook Live and the subject of the blog post today. EIGHT different cards are shown in this post so make sure to check them all out! Plus, don’t miss the Giveaways and limited time offers in this post too!

There are so many fun heat embossing techniques to try with lots of interesting effects! The main focus today is a technique called Joseph’s Coat. Featured here are some of the products in the Snowflake Showcase promotion that ends TODAY, Friday 11/30/18. The first project you see is made with the Happiness Surrounds Stamp Set. I’ve created a number of projects with this awesome set and will include links to some other projects later in this post.

Heat embossing techniques are the focus of today's projects. The specific technique is called Joseph's Coat which produces dramatic and unique effects.

The gradations of color moving from the center outward really make this card don’t you think! Check out my version that combines greens and purples just ahead!

This next photo really shows off this project so much better than the first photo. You may be able to tell there are three different colors in behind the images on this card. Blackberry Bliss is the color in the center, the next color moving outwards is Gorgeous Grape, and then moving further out Highland Heather was used.

I love the shiny clear embossed images and how the light is shining in this photo. So pretty!

In my facebook live I created two variations of the above card and some additional projects you’ll find ahead.

Here are the variations from my Facebook Live Video:

I wasn’t sure I was going to like the version in greens as much but I was wrong! I love it! Monochromatic designs seem to really speak to me. They’re just simple and somehow calming to me! This card was sponged with Mossy Meadow, Pear Pizzaz and Soft Seafoam Inks to create the background color.

For all three versions, I’ve used Blends Alcohol Markers (in Dark Highland Heather on two of the versions and Dark Old Olive on the card above) to color the clear faceted gems.

Again, with this next design, I was skeptical that I was going to like the foliage image around the edges but I also love this one! Don’t the purples and greens and greens look so pretty together?!

Hear’s a close up of my original card again. If you compare all the versions of this card you’ll see that they each turn out different.

Since each time you sponge the background colors will be a bit different, each of the focal pieces, in turn, will be different. Each project is a bit of a surprise! When I experiment and play I never know which focal piece I’m going to love. I try lots of different things and then pick what to create a final card with.

Here are some additional projects that I shared in the Facebook Live.

These next two cards were created using another stamp set offered through the Snowflake Showcase promotion. The set is called the Snow Is Glistening Stamp Set and it’s only available through TODAY!

This first one is made with Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, Crumb Cake, and Early Espresso Inks.

When I first created this focal piece I wasn’t sure I liked it enough to make a card with it. There are some imperfections in it but once mounted on some coordinating cardstock I sort of fell in love with it, imperfections and all. Playing with the Gold Cord was fun too! It was attached to the card using mini glue dots in select spots to get the shape I wanted. The gold glimmer paper star was punched out with the Twinkle Punch and attached with a mini dimensional.

This next card is made with Cherry Cobbler, Real Red, Crumb Cake, and Early Espresso Inks. The rhinestone jewels were colored with the Bronze Blends Alcohol Marker.

I also used my Clear Wink of Stella brush to give the rhinestones a little extra sparkle and shine as well.

Two stamp sets were used to create the forest scene just ahead.

The large trees are from the Winter Woods Stamp Set and the small trees are from the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set. This project is a variation of the Joseph’s Coat technique. The main difference is simply that I left a bit of the sky color exposed.

Two more cards to share with the Joseph’s Coat technique…

The color scheme for this next card is Cherry Cobbler, Real Red, Shaded Spruce (a favorite new green!) and Mint Macaron.

The Shaded Spruce layer is popped up on dimensionals.

While I do really like how this card turned out in the end, the truth is that it doesn’t really do these images justice.

Yes, this Lilly image looks even prettier when stamped with regular old ink! The images in this stamp set are highly detailed and quite beautiful. When I heat embossed the images here a lot of that detail was lost. Stay tuned for more samples made with this set using simple stamping!

Last but not least…

This next card is made with the Sheltering Tree Stamp Set and the Joseph’s Coat technique. I made this one quite some time ago. It was CASE’d (copy and share everything) from something I saw on Pinterest and this card was actually the inspiration for creating all the cards you’ve seen in this post today!

So… do you want to know how to recreate this effect with the Joseph’s Coat technique?

The basic process for the Josephs Coat technique is as follows:

  • Sponge color onto a white or vanilla piece of cardstock.
  • Stamp images over the top in Versamark and emboss with clear embossing powder.
  • Apply a dark, neutral color over the whole surface to make the embossed images pop.

Watch my Facebook Live video demonstration just ahead for all the details. In this video, I’ve demonstrated and shown a number of projects made with this technique.

  • The first part of the video includes announcements and details about prize give away’s and incentives.
  • The heat embossing techniques project demonstration can be found in the second half of the video.
