Tag + Embossing tutorial

Hi friends today am going to share a tutorial of embossing with out using heat gun and a Tag..

Here is the tutorial ..
i have used sea foam white embossing powder and gold embossing powder black and red card stock and stamps and the the most important thing for embossing is Iron box..yes you heard right am using iron box for embossing trying embossing for the first time..i don't own a heat gun so experimented with hair dryer but its a big failure :( then tried with iron box it was successful  yay :D so want to share this with you all.. so people who don't have head gun like me this technique will be helpful..

stamped the summer flower stamp from IBS with versamark on red card stock and used sea foam  embossing powder and tap of excess.. 
Now place the card stock on hot iron box correct side facing up.. in few seconds you can see the result.. if your card stock is so thick then place it on iron box for few more secs ..
so simple isn't it.. :)
repeated the same process for the black card stock.. used HOTP stamp for sentiment wish big and little stars..

Here is my tag using those embossed card stocks ...

 i have stamped the white card stock and placed the black & red embossed panels and embellished the tag with some pearls and a white ribbon lace..

 and my simple tag is ready .. :)

 here is the close up of the tag..

  3. Very pretty tag Radhika ! Loved the red ,black n gold combo.Nice tip to emboss using iron .I also don't own heat gun tried some other methods..:) will try this too Thanks for sharing it !

  4. Great Idea, Radhika, but what do you do to make sure that the powder doesnt stick to the hot iron?

    1. Thank you Divya... we have to place the powdered side up and heat the plain side powder dosent come in contact with iron..:)

  5. Super !! Hehe but not for someone like me who manages to burn myself even while ironing clothes!!
