Today I’m sharing heat embossing fundamentals that are easy to learn + A super cute card!

I have ventured out of my box and I had such a blast making these cards using the WE’LL WALRUS BE FRIENDS stamp set.  This “flower gal” is getting pretty brave and I must admit, I am enjoying it!  These guys are just so STINKIN’ CUTE!  I might just have to admit that this is the most adorable stamp set in the catalog!

I decided today would be the perfect today to combine some techniques and show you some heat embossing fundamentals since I don’t always show you that process in each video and this card also uses some dry embossing, die cuts, and watercoloring. Loads of techniques for this fun card.


Heat Embossing Fundamentals

In the video today I will show you how I watercolored all of these images and also teach you embossing… how to HEAT EMBOSS that is. Heat embossing adds an extra special element to your card and it’s so easy.  If you follow me, you will know I LOVE to emboss white on black for a dramatic greeting!  Here’s today’s video filled with lots of tips!

Back to the Heat Embossing Fundamentals & Cards


All 3 cards use the same basic products and card recipe:

  • Card Base:  8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ (Balmy Blue or Pacific Point)
  • Balmy Blue or Pacific Point Layer:  4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Watercolor Paper for the image, cut out with the Layering Squares Dies
  • Scalloped Layer also cut with Layering Squares Dies


I made the insides just as cut as the outsides!


Card #2


All 3 cards have the layer embossed with the High Seas 3D Embossing Folder

Third Card

I made myself stop stamping after making these 3 so I could move onto to something else to share with you on Wednesday.  But I could have gone on and on with these cute little guys!
