Altenew : Impressive Heat Embossing Techniques

 Alhamdullilah , I have successfully completed my 20 th class on AECP. Next step is my Level 2 Final Challenge. Before that, let’s have a look at the Impressive Heat Embossing Techniques taught at the Altenew Academy. In this course, Svetlana Marchenko shares some creative and unique tips on how to use embossing powders to make gorgeous cards, and I absolutely loved the beautiful cards she made using these techniques. For my card, I followed the tips from lesson 4 – Layered heat embossing.


  1. Create a 3.5″ x 8.5″ slimline card base from an aquamarine Cardstock.
  2. Trim half inch from all the four sides
  3. And run it through the embossing folder
  4. Apply Volcano Lake die ink on a blending tool and apply it over the embossed part.
  5. Stamp Parrot Tulips on a classic crest white cardstock with Sea Shore ink set
  6. Stamp the last layer with Versa Mark ink and sprinkle some clear embossing powder and heat set it with a heat gun
  7. Trim the flower and stick it on the 3D embossing folder design
  8. Apply foam tape in-between the layers to get dimensions
  9. Stamp the sentiment on a strip of aquamarine Cardstock and stick it over the card.


  • Before stamping, use an Anti-Static Pouch tool to remove static from your paper so the powder doesn’t stick where you don’t want it.
  • Make at least one layer of your flower heat embossed to make it shine
  • There are different types of embossing powders, and they have different textures. Some, for example, the fine or detail embossing powders have a smoother finish while others, for example, the glitter or chunky embossing powders have a textured finish. So, it is always helpful to create swatches.
  • Use various ink colors with clear embossing powder if you do not have needed embossing powder color


  • Sizzix Bigshot die cutting Machine
  • Neenah Paper 4456 Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock
  • Misti stamping tool
  • Aquamarine Cardstock
  • Tulip 3D embossing folder
  • Build-A-Flower: Parrot Tulips
  • Build-A-Flower: Hawaiian Coral
  • Tsukineko Versamark EMBOSS INK PAD Watermark VM-001
  • Ranger Sf Clear-Embossing Powder
  • Sea Shore Crisp Dye Ink Mini Cube Set
