Stencils are one of my most versatile tools in my craft room. You can add ink through them, shove mediums and paints, and there are so many wonderful techniques to use with them as well. Today, I want to take it back to a basic technique I love using with my stencils which is heat embossing. There are so many great looks you can achieve with just stencils and embossing powder. Be sure to watch the video tutorial below for all the details on today’s projects!
Some supplies used in my video tutorial were sent to me free of charge for design purposes. I only ever design for companies I stand behind 100%. To see what companies I work with or have worked with in the past head HERE.
My first card is simple and I love the effect the heat embossing gives to this card. Almost like lace! I used the Growing Wild stencil along with white embossing powder on kraft cardstock.
On my second card I wanted to go really bright. I decided to use the Floral Spectacle stencil, again on kraft card stock, and heat emboss the stencil in rainbow colors! This is a fun technique, but it does take some time so be sure to use enough ink that it stays wet long enough.
My third background is my favorite and it’s so simple. It’s just gold embossing powder on kraft card stock, but I used two layers instead of one. The added dimension and shine honestly looks like foil! I absolutely love the effect this gives with the Fantastical stencil.
Heat embossing is such a simple technique that stretches your stencils even further! And by use different embossing techniques you can get some amazing stenciled backgrounds.
