Heat embossing is a fun basic technique that can make your projects literally shine. The White Satin Pearl Embossing Powder is quite unique, and it makes the stamped images look professional and outstanding. So today I am sharing how this product can be used easily to create beautiful backgrounds and to enhance die cut shapes to achieve fabulous results.
Like any other embossing powder, the White Satin Pearl Embossing Powder can be applied to different surfaces like cardstock and vellum, or you can even try any technique that you know like the emboss-resist one with it. I can assure you that you are going to be pleased with the wonderful results that you will get. Here is a video tutorial showing you how I created my card:

For this card I used the Large Floral background stamp over a Layering paper panel. I like that the embossing powder reveals a little bit of the color of the card stock underneath. The darker the color of cardstock, the bigger the contrast. For a subtle and fresh aspect, a lighter color of cardstock is better.
To enhance the die cut sentiment, I heat-embossed the words twice with this powder for a unique pearlescent appearance that looks smooth, shiny and a little bit puffy. :)
If you happen to have or buy this powder, I will recommend you to play with it. I made a bunch of backgrounds with it, because I really like the effect of elegance that this powder can bring into your projects. I was so entertained using it , that I made more than one card. Here is one of them:
And here you can see closely how pretty this embossing powder looks. I have to say that they look even better in real life.
Well, that’s all from me today. I hope you enjoyed the video, and found some inspiration to create pretty backgrounds. Thanks for joining me.
