Emboss Like a Boss

Basics of Embossing

What’s the first thing we all said when we someone demonstrated heat embossing? WOW! And WOW Embossing Powders continue to do everything possible to help crafters create that feeling. They have a huge selection of colors and finishes (at last count we have nearly 40 varieties in stock at Paper Anthology!) but also, did you know they have an amazing collection of videos showing everything from the most basic procedures to incredibly creative and artistic techniques? In this post we’ve collected just a few of our favorites to get you started! PS: Our entire stock of WOW products is now available in the online store; or stop by to see them all in person!

Altenew 3D Embossing Folders (WOW!)

It might seem odd that Altenew’s new line of embossing folders all have “3D” in their name; afterall, every embossing folder creates a 3D effect, that’s nothing new, right? Except… these are DIFFERENT! They’re much more deeply embossed than traditional folders. So much so, that still photos don’t really convey their intricacies. You should probably watch the video!

The collection includes: Daisies, Mod Squares, Deck Planks, Simple Frame, Dreamy Tiles, Banana Leaves, Spring Blossoms, Enchanting Vines, Waffled Diamonds, Whimsical Bouquet, and Decorative Florals . The Metallic Rub-Ons used on these samples come in four different palettes, each with seven coordinating opaque shades that can be applied selectively to any project for some subtle shimmer and drama.
