Embossing Is Easy To Do

1. Stamp Design

2. Pour Embossing Powder

3.Tap Off Excess and Heat

4. Voila! Shiny Gold Design

  1. Place stamp supplies on paper to catch excess powder. Using a clear pigment pad or pigment ink pad stamp, stamp image
  2. Cover image generously with embossing powder while it is still wet.
    Excess powder can be returned to the powder jar to be used over and over.
  3. Use heat source (emboss heat tool) not a hair dryer. Hold stamped image above heat source to prevent burning. Do not let paper touch heat source. Heat and watch closely as powder goes from Dull to Shiny!
  4. Note: Heat tool should move around image and not stay in single spot area for more than 8-10 seconds)


Other Neat Tips

  • Embossing powder will stick to any moist, freshly stamped image, but special slow-drying embossing ink and the pigment ink pads stay wet longer and make embossing easier.
  • Oils from your skin can get on the paper from handling it. If the powder sticks where you don't want it to, use a soft brush to remove it. A quick wipe with a used fabric softener sheet before stamping will also help to prevent static cling.
  • When cutting out an embossed image, do not cut into the embossed lines. This will cause the embossing powder to flake off
