General Techniques

Embedded Embossing by April Williams


See also the Molten Pearls technique for a variation on this.



Supplies needed:

  1. patterned paper
  2. ink to match paper
  3. sponge
  4. clear embossing powder -- Clear Transparent EP120
  5. contrasting color of embossing powder ( I used Concord EP419 )
  6. heat tool
  7. Versa Mark ink pad 99702

First use a die and cut out a shape from the patterned paper.

Next take a sponge and sponge the ink around the die shape.

Pat the Versa Mark ink pad all over the die cut shape and add the clear embossing powder.

Heat this with a heat tool and repeat the steps above 2 more times.

Make sure you rub over the clear embossed shape with the anti static bag before you do the next step.

Ink up your stamp with Versa mark ink and stamp onto the clear embossed shape.

Pour the colored embossing powder over the stamped image, pour off excess, and heat set. This is the neat part! The image will set into the clear embossed shape. It has a different look than just stamping with ink on top of the piece. It is kind of  hard to see it in a picture. Also you can see that the embossing powder did not quite cover the
bottom part of the ducks; however, I liked the effect and didn't do it over.
