Heart Felt Event

Hi Stampers

Today I have the last project that I created for the Heart Felt Event in Auckland that was held in September. I had so much fun playing and the day was a great display of goodies to play with and inspiration.

This final project was playing with the Satin ribbon and heating with the Heat Tool to make it curl. I played with some retired ribbon and after a couple of attempts got it the way I wanted. Again I used an oven tray when using the Heat Tool on the ribbon.


Once I knew what I was doing I tried it on the ‘Striped Satin Ribbon’ from the Holiday Catalogue on page 26 and I really like the effect it gave.


So there you have it, maybe nothing new to you but a great reminder of some of the techniques that you can do using the Heat Tool.

Thanks for stopping by.

Heart Felt Event – Heat Tool

Hi Stampers

First up I have the ‘Emboss Resist’ technique on a scrapbook page. So Scrapbooking is one of those projects that I ‘really should do more of, you know make the time and just do it’ but alas I’m still no further along. So I don’t do scrapbooking very well at all.

Next up was the ‘Necklace’ made from washers that were covered in Designer Series Paper ‘Be of Good Cheer’ then covered with VersaMark before being covered with ‘Iridescent Ice’ Emboss powder. These washers get super HOT when heated so I did them on an oven tray with a sheet of Baking Paper on it.


I did both sides of the washers


Next up was a little note card – I love creating these, using the ‘Emboss resist technique’ again.


For this next card I mixed Gumball Green and Silver embossing powder together. In real life, lol, you can see both colours coming through – gives an interesting effect. I mixed equal parts of Embossing Powder together.


Tomorrow I will have my final samples to show you.

Thanks for stopping by

Heat Felt Event – Heat Tool

Hi Stampers

The ‘Scented Emboss Powder’ was available to play with and by now you probably have as well. So these following projects were all about the scent which you won’t get through the screen here, lol, but I’m sure you get the idea.

These two were scented with the ‘Sugar and Spice’


These next two were scented with the ‘Peppermint Sticks’.



So the ‘Peppermint Sticks’ scented Emboss Powder has some quality issues right now and if you are unsatisfied with your purchase of the Peppermint Sticks Scented Embossing powder then please contact your demonstrator for a refund or to exchange it for a different scented Stampin’ Emboss powder.

Thanks for stopping by.


Heart Felt Event – Heat Tool

Hi Stampers

The Heat Tool is a tool that you just need to have as it offers you a whole world of techniques.

For this next project I used the  Bigz Snow Furry Die (127813) from the Seasonal Catalogue, I cut out 1 large Snow Flurry and 2 of the others using the On Board sheets (114320). I then covered with VersaMark (102283) and covered with Silver Emboss powder (109131)and heat set with the Heat Tool. There are 3 layers on each Snow flurry. I put together the layers using Dimensionals (104430) and for added colour I went with Cherry Cobbler cardstock and bakers twine.

On the end circles of the lager snow flurry I used Dazzling details (124117). At the last minute when everything was assembled I decided to emboss the Pearl (119247) in the centre with Cherry Cobbler Emboss Powder (122949) so I pressed the Pearl into the VersaMark and then dipped into the Cherry Cobbler emboss powder then heat set with the Heat Tool. I should really have removed the Pearl to emboss  but I didn’t and it shows on the final product.

You can change the colour of the Pearls by using any of the coloured Emboss Powders on page 159 of the Annual Catalogue

Heart Felt Event – Heat Tool

Hi Stampers

Next up we have the ‘Double Embossing’ technique. Start by dry embossing your cardstock and then, here, the raised image was brayered over with VersaMark (or you can use the VersaMark direct to raised image), sprinkled on Emboss powder of your choice, on this card it was Iridescent Ice, heat set with the Heat Tool and you are done. This card is from page 7 of the Holiday Catalogue, well my version of it made with the product that I had available.


and here is a slightly different version.

Heart Felt Event – Heat Tool

Hi Stampers

This card was the Faux Tiling technique that shows the tiling effect both horizontal and vertical.


Next was the cracked glass technique


I also made this banner so that other colours of Emboss powder were available to see and it came in really useful comparing the Silver with the New ‘Pewter’ Emboss powder that we got to play with on the day


These were the only colours that I had - so not all of the colours available are here. Check out page 159 of the current Annual catalogue.
