Embossing with Adhesive Sheets

Need a new trick to try on your paper crafts projects? Do you love embossing powder? Well then, I have a treat for you today! Have you ever looked at the background on a patterned paper and felt like it needed a little more punch to go with your picture? As I looked at the picture I wanted to use and the background paper I also wanted to use, I knew it needed a little more color – specifically color that matched my picture.  Therefore once again, I dug into my Adhesive Sheets to turn things around!  Christine joining you today with a technique I have shared earlier but just love: heat embossing with Adhesive Sheets.

Using Heat Embossing with Adhesive Sheets

I started things off with a simple background paper from Doodlebug Design and altered it dramatically using several different adhesives: 4 X 6 Adhesive Sheets, Crafty Foam Tape, 3D Foam Squares White Mix, E-Z Runner® Micro Refillable Dispenser, and the E-Z Runner® Grand Dispenser.  These are all some of my favorite go-to adhesives!

The original base paper didn’t have a lot of the colors that were in my picture, however I had heat embossing powder in both aqua and yellow to coordinate perfectly with my picture.  I used star punches to punch out the Adhesive Sheets and adhere them to my layout.  I then was able to create a beautiful and colorful night sky by embossing with Adhesive Sheets.  The video below walks you thru the entire process:

I never get thru an entire project without using either 3D Foam Squares or Crafty Foam Tape – both of these products are absolute necessities for me!  I love that they are an easy way to add dimension AND they also hold really well.  As I mentioned in the video – the Crafty Foam Tape speeds things up when you have longer pieces to add dimension to.

Thanks so much for joining me today – Have a Happy and Safe Halloween!
