Embossing 6.2.3

Technique A:  Heat Embossing
1]   Place your card stock in a Powder PalTM tray or over a large piece of scratch paper.
2]   Rub the Embossing Buddy®across the card stock you want to emboss (this keeps the embossing powder from sticking anywhere but on the ink). 
3]   Stamp the image with Craft, VersaMark®, or embossing ink.
4]   Pour powder onto the inked image, making sure that the image is coated completely. 
5]   Shake off excess powder into the tray and funnel it back into the container.
6]   Heat the stamped image only until the powder changes to a shiny liquid and rises.
7]   Allow embossed image to cool.
Technique B:  Emboss Resist
1]   Follow steps 1–7 above, using Crystal Clear Stampin’ Emboss® powder.
2]   Apply ink with a sponge directly to the paper over and around the embossed image.
3]   Wipe the embossed image with a tissue to remove the excess ink.
QUICK TIP: Avoid overheating the powder and burning the paper when working with a heat tool.
