Heat embossing on acetate can be tricky if you’ve never attempted it. Today’s quick tip video will provide numerous tips for heat embossing on acetate – stamping, powdering and heat setting an image. I’ve also added in tips on how to provide color to your stamped and heat embossed acetate images using the Stampin’ Blends. These alcohol based markers can color just about anything! If you haven’t experimented with them yet, I hope today’s video will entice you.

Unlike stamping on cardstock, you do not have to prep acetate with the Embossing Buddy when heat embossing on acetate. Another important thing to know is that acetate is very staticy which means the embossing powder will want to stick everywhere. But don’t worry. I’ll demonstrate an easy way to remove the excess!


And if you love shimmer and sparkle as much as I do, you’ll love adding your heat embossing acetate pieces to glimmer paper. The video shares two glimmer paper samples – silver and sparkle. With two choices, you can decide just how much pizzazz your projects need.

Cutting Dimensions

  • Whisper White cardstock base is cut 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
  • Whisper White cardstock layer is cut 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • I used 5 3/4″ of ribbon to wrap around the cardstock layer and another 14″ to make the double bow which was adhered using a Glue Dot.
