(2018 c25) Hearts TIm Holtz Embossing Diffuser

Here is another card where I followed Jennifer McGuire’s video showing how to use Sizzix Tim Holtz Embossing Diffusers.   And here is another Crafter, Sara Emily’s post at sarascloset showing the same technique HERE.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The picture below shows the embossing folders, Inks & die used.  Before running through the embossing folder with the outside edges diffuser, I swiped the larger flat portions  of the Swirl Embossing Folder  with  Versamark Ink  & heat embossed these debossed areas with Red WOW Embossing Powder .  Then I gently swiped the raised swirls with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Inks by Ranger and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The raised polkadots in the center were highlighted with red Zig Wink Of Stella .  The heart shapes were cut with Heart Ornamental Die by Sizzix.  They were highlighted with clear Zig Wink Of Stella.
