Exploring Embossing Techniques

Responding to a viewer's question about embossing, Amy admits that she does not frequently engage in embossing techniques, especially on camera. She briefly demonstrates the process using an embossing folder and a rolling pin. Amy explains that embossing powder is applied by stamping a design with a clear embossing ink pad, sprinkling the powder, and heating it with a heat gun. She recommends watching other crafters, such as Gail Augustanelli, for more detailed demonstrations on embossing techniques.

Tips for Embossing with a Big Shot

Using Embossing Powder

Amy explains the process of using embossing powder with a clear embossing ink pad. While apologizing for not having the necessary tools on hand for a full demonstration, she describes the basic steps of the process.

She suggests watching Gail Augustanelli's videos for more comprehensive tutorials on embossing techniques.

Embracing Creativity and Trying Something New

Amy expresses her enthusiasm for exploring new crafts and pushing her creative boundaries. She discusses the joys of experimenting with different techniques and materials to create unique and imaginative projects. Amy emphasizes the importance of avoiding repetitive patterns and images to ensure her products stand out among others in the market. She encourages fellow crafters to embrace their own creative impulses and think outside the box.
