heat embossing and washi tape with wood veneers

Ready for the next ideas for wood veneers? On today’s project, I combined a couple of ideas, using washi tape and heat embossing.

To heat emboss your wood veneer, simply push the veneer into your embossing ink pad. Lift in gently and place it onto a piece of scrap paper. Cover with embossing powder and tap off the excess. Then apply the heat. This will take a bit longer than usual, so keep your heat tool moving. I cannot wait to try this with the glitter embossing powders!!

The washi tape was a bit more fussy…but still worth it. Simply apply the tape over the surface, going over the edges. Trim away the excess along the edge of the shape with a pair of detail scissors. I then used my finger nail to smooth away the edges.

P.S. Well, time has gotten away  from me, as usual. Seems like I am always saying that. :) The little man is done with school and he is now the focus of all my time, which I wouldn’t trade for anything. We also spent a fantastic weekend in MN with my family celebrating my nephew’s first birthday. It was good to go “home.” We also got to spend time on the lake, which was cold, and the fishing was lousy, but it was so wonderful to be outside.

The summer will be busy with the little man having golf, baseball, and science camp. We have trips planned, both day and longer. My first blog posts as an official Paper Crafts Go To Gal will be soon and I will be popping in here and there with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L projects and Reverse Confetti too, but it will be a bit quieter. I know you all have busy summers planned too. When it rains, stop by for a visit. Or when you are hanging at the beach under that great umbrella.

Thanks for always stopping by! For the emails, for the sweet comments, for the questions, and for just being great. Hugs!
