Embossing ~ Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop

Welcome to the 5th  Ink & Share Scrapbook blog hop,  I am delighted to be taking part  again.  We are  group of international Stampin UP! demonstrators sharing our ideas and creativity with you.

You will have either arrived from  Shirley Mercer’s post or starting here ~ either way WELCOME.  This month’s theme is  Embossing   ~  there are different types of embossing, dry embossing which uses Embossing Folders along with the Big Shot, Powder Embossing which uses embossing powders and a Heat Gun and Embossing Paste – so I had quite a decision to make on which to choose.

Once again I have chosen to use a 12 x 12 page – mainly because Stampin’ UP! has 12 x 12 card stock in all its colors which gives me a fantastic choice but also because they have the 12 x 12 Page Protectors and Albums.

Embossing Paste Technique # 2 ~ Heat Embossing video tutorial

When the 2017 – 2018 Annual Catalog was launched in June there was a new product tucked away on Page 201 ~ Embossing Paste!  It was on my first order and I was so excited when it arrived, however I was also excited about the other goodies that arrived in the same box!  I set aside the pot of paste and to be honest it went from my mind – especially as Christmas themes started.

I was tidying my workbench (it happens….. rarely but it does happen!) and there was the pot of Embossing Paste waiting patiently for my attention.  What fun I have had with this product, as I explored what could be done with it I thought a few video’s would be fun to share.  Here is the  second of my series where I will share how to Heat Emboss your Embossing Paste!
