Heat embossed impression stamping – 4 cards in one post!

Did you know that you can stamp into your heat embossing? Say what?! Yes, you read that right. This is an amazing way to step up your backgrounds, die-cuts of the focal point of your card. I’m showing you three (well 4, ones a tow-fer!) cards with this technique,  hopefully, this will inspire you to try it.  So don’t be afraid and try Heat embossed impression stamping with me!

To create the cards, you need to make heat embossed panels. First, ink smoosh your clear embossing ink down onto a card panel and make sure you get good coverage of ink. Next cover with an embossing powder of your choosing. 

For these first two cards which are a two-fer, I used Judith’s Blush which is in collaboration with Alexendre Renke. For each heat embossed panel in today’s post, you need to repeat this to add about 5 layers of embossing powders. 
Now the next step requires a stamping platform as you need to keep stamping in the same position. If you’re using a red rubber stamp, remove the foam pad add your background. These two cards feature the Lover note stamp from Catherine Pooler Designs. 

Next, heat a portion of the embossed panel to melt and rewarm the powder. Quickly, close your MISTI door and apply a large amount of pressure to press the stamp into your embossing. 

When you open the door, you’ll see an impression where you melted the powder. Now keep repeating this, moving where you heat up and stamp until the background is complete.

When you use your heat gun, make sure you move it and it is heated up before you bring it to the panel in your MISTI. Also, make sure you have removed your foam pad as you don’t want to melt this. You’re not keeping the heat on your MISTI long enough to cause any damage, but you might want to risk assess it.

To turn this background into two cards, I die-cut the panel with the Simply Diamond Pink Freshstudio die and used both the positive and negative parts on each card. These cards were finished off with a layered die-cut using the Happy Birthday Sentiment Suite die set. 

Lastly, after finish the sentiments off with corresponding stamped sentiments, I added a few blue sequins to contrast with the soft pink embossing.

Heat embossed impression stamping: focal stamping

For this card, I embossed a card panel with 5 layers of In The Navy embossing powder. Instead of using a rubber stamp with this card, I’m using the WOW! Layered hearts stamp set. 

As we will need to heat without the foam pad, you need to do a little preparation first. Position the hearts onto the panel with the foam pad in. Next, remove the foam pad. In order for the photopolymer stamps to stamp into the panel, we need to raise the panel back up, but with some cardstock stacked up.

Repeat as with the previous two cards but melting and warming the embossing and then stamp the hearts down. The photopolymer stamps will release from the heat embossing, though may need slightly more help compared to a red rubber stamp.

In addition, I also stamped a few of the hearts into the heart impressions and heat embossed with Rose Gold embossing powder. The panel was trimmed down and a sentiment added from the Round & Round stamp set from WOW!

For this last card, I’ve kept it simple and again use a red rubber stamp. I used Oiled Slate embossing powder used to create the heat embossed panel

To create texture, I’ve stamped with the Painted Stripe background from Catherine Pooler design. This impression is subtle with the Oiled slate embossing powder but works well! Once the panel was complete, I used a nesting square die to trim this down and foam mount it onto a card. 

To complete the card, I added a Hello die-cut from Catherine Pooler designs as well as some stamped floral images. The stamp set used is Altenew Willowing Blossom and I use a selection of Catherine Pooler inks.
