Embossing With Stencil With DT Lynnea

Hey, everyone! It's Lynnea and I'm going to show you how you can add heat embossing with a stencil to give your project some shine and dimension! Let's get started!



I grabbed some supplies to start with, but you'll see in the end I add even more!


I blended some Distress Oxide inks onto a watercolor card panel to create my background. I used Faded Jeans all over and added some Black Soot to the edges to darken it up. I blended the black into the blue with Hickory Smoke.


I taped the Hearts Galore stencil to the back of my cardstock because my original plan was to use the entire inked panel. You'll see later that I used a die to trim it down.


Once I taped down my stencil I used my Versamark ink pad and smooshed the ink down all over the stencil. Once I removed my stencil I added some clear embossing powder. This adds some shine and the area where the embossing powder is melted is darker.


I stamped my sentiment from two stamp sets - Happy Sentiments and Wishful Thoughts - onto a banner die cut from the Flag Banner die set. I used clear embossing powder over black ink so the sentiment's shine would match the card background.


I chose to cut down the panel with the largest scalloped rectangle die from the Fancy Frame die set. I also cut the left side of the sentiment banner with the same die so that the edges would match up.


At first this looks like a normal card, but it is actually super shiny and has great texture!


Here's my final card! I hope you will try this technique for yourself!
