Heat Emboss Letterpress Technique with Teresa Collins ColorBox Pigment Ink and Craftwell Embossing Folder

by | July 17th, 2016 | 2

Heat embossing a full sheet of paper can give your cards fronts a unique, lacquered look. Today I’m sharing how to add even more texture and excitement to heat embossed paper with an emboss letterpress technique AND all over stamping. This card is fun and funky, perfect to express an unexpected but well-deserved “thank you”!

On this card, I used some of my personal favorite Teresa Collins products; the colors of her ColorBox Pigment Ink collection are so perfectly matched – choose any two, and they go together like magic! Pigment ink grabs onto embossing powder.
