Class - Impressive Heat Embossing

Altenew's Heat Embossing Class

Wow! What a fun class taught by Svetlanna Marchenko.  This class is loaded with great information and lots of techniques!!!  If you get a chance to sign up for this one it is really good.  I've stamped for a long time but there is always something to learn.  I started these cards by stamping the outline with embossing ink and powder.  Then I heat embossed with a heat gun.  The next step was to water color the pieces.  I have to say that when I started the water coloring of the flowers I didn't like my first layer.  As I started to add more color and move it around with water I began to really want to see more.  The rose and orange flowers on the green card was my first. I like this card a lot except for the placement of the leaves.  I thought I could place all my elements on the first layer all at once.  Well....I can't.  I should have definitely done the flowers first then masked and done the leaves.  My card has the leaves floating out in empty space instead of connected to the flowers.  Lesson 1 learned!  When I got to the lavender cards I had an issue with my die cuts.  The die pulled up some of the white embossed portion of the element.  Two things here...first my die must have been a little off the line, second I think if I maybe used a piece of wax paper between the die and the image this wouldn't have happened.  But oh my goodness did I have fun!  Die cutting, water coloring, placing the elements, deciding on the backrounds, adding the splattering and adding the Nuvo drops.   The Altenew stamp and die set is the Build a Flower Dahlia. You can see this set at  Go Explore the site.  You'll find a ton of inspiration and lots more product to choose from.  Hopefully you have some carding making going on this weekend.  I do!!!  
Above is a picture of tree of the cards I made after taking this class.  You can see that color changes the whole look of a card.

I really hope you enjoyed my blog and pictures!  Please leave me a comment if you have any questions!  Have a wonderful weekend.

  3. Its effectiveness - on the off chance that it very well may be called that - is 200% to 300%. This implies for 5 KW of warming, one will pay for around 2 KW of electric vitality. Warmtepompen
