Embossing Magic Episode 5: Intaglio Technique

If you can't tell already, heat embossing is one of my favorite techniques. You can get so many different looks with a little embossing powder and a heat tool. Here is the next video in my series of tutorials on heat embossing. Hope you enjoy.

Please note: I had to split the tutorial into two parts due to the 10-minute time limit on videos posted to So be sure to watch both parts.

Supplies* used in video:
  • Glassy Glaze Enamel
  • Tempting Turquoise Craft Stampin' Pad
  • VersaMark
  • Baroque Motifs stamp set
  • Heat Tool
  • Powder Pal (tray)
  • Butterfly shape cut from matboard using Beautiful Butterflies Sizzix Bigz Die
  • Pad of paper (newspaper can be subsituted)
  • Metallic Rub-Ons

*Supplies (excluding pad of paper & metallic rub-ons) can be purchased through my Stampin'Up! wesbite here.

Laura Pinto-Nguyen said...

This is a great technique...made me think it's a good one to teach alongside the Cracked Glass technique as well...

Love those projects!!!

Michelle Wedemeyer said...

Thanks everyone for your kind words. And yes Laura's right. I'm planning on doing a tutorial on the Cracked Glass technique for those of you who aren't familiar with it. Hope to get it posted this upcoming week.

Hi Michelle,

Hi Michelle! I have to tell you that I have just discovered your blog and boy am I hooked! I have so many rubber stamps in my craft room that have been under used and underappreciated and now I am beginning to work with them again using your tutorials. Each morning I wake an hour earlier to sit with a cup of coffee and watch one of your tutorials before heading of to work. Thanks for the great inspiration!! :)
