Video Tutorial: Gradient Color Embossing

Welcome to day 2 of heat embossing week! (I think we need to come up with a catchier name. :)) The tutorial today is about a technique that I am calling, Gradient Color. Super easy and super trendy!

Here is the direct link, if you need it: VIDEO

Embossing Gradient Color

This card uses the technique twice, once for the background and then again for the pumpkins and sentiment. I used the same technique for last Friday’s card, which you can see HERE.

Let me know what you are heat embossing-I would love to see your projects! Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!

Supplies: Stamps (Stampendous-Damask Fall), Ink (Tsukineko Versamark Watermark), Embossing Powder (Stampendous-Rich and Rugged Collection), Cardstock (Papertrey Ink-Kraft, Dark Chocolate, Rustic White, Terra Cotta Tile), Twine (May Arts)

Thanks Kimberly! I have fallen in love with series blogging recently. I will get on a kick with one type of idea, and focus on it for a whole week! I particularly love this series, since I need the refresher course! I rarely use any color other than white or clear! I have used black twice...EVER!
Thanks again!

I just wanted to let you know that yesterday I was scraping at my MIL's and I was telling her about this technique. I tried it out and couldn't believe it was really that easy. She swore up and down she couldn't do it because it looked to beautiful it must be hard and she wouldn't be able to replicate what I did (she has self esteem issues so we've turned scraping into her therapy) after bugging her about it I got her to do it and she was shocked... well more like over the moon excited she pulled it off. So that was a great confidence booster for her. Thanks so much for sharing with us, we look forward to more tutorials.
