Happy World Card Making Day. I have a new tutorial for you on sharing how to heat emboss your cards with makeup! Yes, you read that correct…makeup! This is such a cool way to add color to your card instead of ink or regular embossing powder. Since I have retired, I don’t wear a lot of makeup anymore so it was just sitting there waiting to be used from something else. Today tutorial is all about using your makeup as just another tool for your crafting happiness.
So here is the card we are going to create today. Look how gorgeous it looks against the makeup palette. I could just stare at this all day. 😂 The simple things that make me happy in this world. Heat emboss cards just look so much cooler I think. So why not heat emboss with makeup?
You will see in the tutorial just how easy this is to create. The possibilities is really endless here on the color combinations you can create. The stamp I’m using today is from Sunny Studios and it’s called Elegant Leaves. This is such a pretty stamp set and as soon as I saw it I had to have it in my crafty stash.
As you can see in this photo you not only get color with this technique, you also get some texture as well. That’s what I really enjoy about the sticky embossing powder. It leaves some granulation behind that you can feel on your card. (CAUTION: Do not overhead this embossing powder). I’ll share my tip on how to make sure you keep that granulation in the video. So onto the video. You can watch it here or over at my Youtube channel mzdanajoy. I’ve used affiliate links for your convenience at no cost to you. Want to see other tutorials from me?
