A New Video – Tips for Heat Embossing

I likely use Stampin’ Emboss Powder more than a person should – I rely on this powdery (but super-easy to clean up) powder time and time again to create bold, slick images on cards I make.  To say that I really like Stampin’ Emboss Powder would be an understatement – I love the stuff!  Love!  I don’t even blink at the idea of having two of each color in my stash – I never know when I might run out.  🙂

Over the years, I’ve shared many projects that feature Stampin’ Emboss Powder – my favorite is White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, but please don’t tell the other powders because I can’t deal with all their insecure drama.  To continue sharing my passion for this powdery goodness, I filmed a fun video for you.  Enjoy!

  1. Totally agree, the embossing powder often gives the pop you need!

  2. Great idea, Brian! I’ll definitely try the idea using the metal lid. Our pizza stone is a lot more “used looking” than yours

  3. Insecure drama? I deal with that practically on a daily basis, but so glad it’s not my embossing powder too. Love your humor! I also absolutely love the way you cut out the slanted lines around the sentiment. It looks like it might have been quite time consuming to get it all straight around the circular sentiment. I think it’s great!

  4. You are hysterical. Love the “tips” too.

  5. Great tips, as usual. Sound effects – just priceless! I also wanted to comment on how appreciated is the fact that your videos are “front views”. This feature truly enhances the enjoyment and humor you always manage to provide. Refreshing perspective, as so many others are from an “overhead” view. Hope you enjoyed your Christmas – wishing you and your family a very Happy and Healthy New Year!

  6. LOL!! Brian, love the sound effects, you are a riot!!!
    Thanks for the tips, I will give the tin lid a try, my pizza stone looks like it’s been “loved” to death. 😉
    I love your parade of heat embossed cards, all of them are just fabulous.

  7. Thanks for the laugh in the morning. I’m glad that I’m not the only one with an embossing powder habit. Thanks for the tips – i’ll definitely try a tin lid. Maybe I’ll get some shortbread first…

  8. The “Thanks” card when clicked on does not come up—it says it can’t be found.

  9. Nice tips! Off to see where I put my metal tray!

  10. Oh, Brian, you are so darling!!!! I can say that because I’m a grandmother and I have two granddaughters — so I know all about drama !!!! I have another tip for you concerning embossing powder— you know the tiny silicone packs that come in everything you buy from medicine to shoes??? They are there to prevent moisture– put one of those in each of your containers of embossing powder and it will keep it moisture free and prolong the shelf life!!! I love your blog and I adore your humor– you make my heart happy every day!!❤️❤️❤️

  11. Ok, so I think I got this down. You dislike glitter, love embossing powder. Got it

  12. Oh, what an excellent tip…thanks so much!!! And, your cards with embossing are just gorgeous!!!

  13. Love this. I love how you store your embossing powder.

  14. Thanks for the tips, Brian. One question tho, do you use such a big lid because something smaller will not only heat the cardstock but your fingers as well? Or am I just overthinking this??? BTW-your embossed cards are gorgeous!
