Heat Emboss

Last Friday night I had a heat emboss glass.  It was a lot of fun creating new cards with friends.  The following two cards that we did that night.  This one is embossed on vellum it gives it a lovely soft touch.  I really like it.  Then use markers to colour the outlined images, blend with a blender pen and there you have it.  Beautiful.  Easy when you know how.  One trick is also to use Stampin up! Vellum card stock.  It is thicker and therefore does not burn or brown when the heat gun is applied.  Yet it still has that soft transparent look.  I love it.  I think I have said that already..

The card below is from Lovely as a tree, another of my favourites.  It has been heat embossed with Copper powder.  I like this effect it is great for a more masculine looking card.  Sorry the photo does not quite do it justice.   Hope you enjoy them.
