New Technique - Painting with Heat Emboss Powder

For today's tutorial I would like to share with you a unique technique to achieve a painted look using heat embossing powder. I really like how it changes plain cardstock into a more artistic looking accent piece for handmade cards. I paired this technique with Stampin Up Peaceful Boughs Stamp Set and it's coordinating dies Beautiful Boughs. I hope you enjoy this video and give this technique a try.

1- On a paper plate mix about a teaspoon of liquid glue (any type) with a couple drops of water.
2- Use a paintbrush to paint the glue over your cardstock. I used Real Red. Make sure to have different thicknesses of glue to give some variety.
3- Apply the Heat Emboss Powder all over the glue.
4- Heat with a heat tool to melt the powder until it has a shinny sheen.
5- Stamp the single bough from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Stazon Ink. I kept the images along the bottom of the cardstock.
6- On the strip of Basic Black cardstock stamp the greeting in VersaMark.
7- Apply white embossing powder to the greeting.
8- With a clean / dry paintbrush remove any excess powder.
9- Heat with your heat tool.
10- Use the small label and single bough die from the Beautiful Boughs Dies to cut the greeting and 3 boughs.
11- Adhere the Real Red Cardstock to the Garden Green Cardstock at an angle.
12- Adhere to the Thick White Cardbase at an angle.
13- Cut a piece of ribbon just shy of 5.5"
14- Add some wrapped silver metallic thread to the back of the greeting. I used snail to adhere it.
15- Add the cut out boughs. I place one on the top left, bottom left, and bottom right of the greeting. Add dimensionals to the back.
16- Place the greeting over the ribbon and position it in the bottom left corner of the card front. I didn't want anything to hang over the edge of the card. So the boughs just barely touch the edges.
17- Adhere the ribbon to the card.
18- Place 3 green enamel dots around the greeting.

All done!
