Hello everybody! I am so glad you’re here today because we’re going to talk about bling and how to make shimmery embossed images… yep, shimmer, shine and bling…. in the form of embossing powder. You may have missed seeing this little hidden gem in the new catalog. It’s at the bottom of page 181, tucked in with the other embossing powders.

Maybe you’ve wondered about heat embossing but you weren’t sure you were ready to tackle it. Let me tell you, it’s not scary at all. In fact, you will be blow away by the impact heat embossing has on a card. Today we’re taking it up a notch by adding SHIMMER to it. Are you ready to learn how?
