Hi! Today I am sharing a video showing the beautiful results you can achieve with layered metallic heat embossing.
A few months ago, I shared how to use heat embossing with layering stamp sets. (Find that video HERE.) Today I have something very similar… but with metallic powders.
For my first example, I stamped and heat embossed the three layers of the Altenew/SSS Be Leaf Me STAMPtember Stamps with silver, gold, and copper glitter embossing powders. I love how the powders somewhat melt into each other. You can use any embossing powders for this, but I think metallics make the biggest impact!
After creating my leaves, I die cut a white Avery Elle Postage Stamp Dies frame and adhered it all on a notecard.
I wanted a die cut sentiment to look like it was floating across the frame… but I knew it needed to be sturdy. Therefore I cut three Simon Says Stamp Thankful Die Cuts from brown Tim Holtz Substrate Sheets and glued them together. The Substrate Sheets are slightly thicker than cardstock but significantly stronger. I covered the layered die cut with Judikins Iridescent Sparkle and WOW Ultra High Clear Gloss powders and adhered it across the frame with touches of Ranger Multi Medium.
For the second example, I used the new Avery Elle/SSS Christmas Cheer Stamptember Stamps. I layered blue, light blue, and silver glitter heat embossed images and even added extra embossing touches with a Sakura Quickie Glue Roller Pen. I completed the card in the same way as the first, but used a layered Simon Says Stamp Delightful Die Cut covered with silver glitter powder.
The sequins and beads on both cards are from All Little Things From Lucy’s Cards Sequin Mixes. She has some great mixes!
Hope you will give this technique a try!
