• Place your card stock in a tray or over a large piece of scratch paper.
  • Rub an anti static pad across the card stock you want to emboss. This keeps the embossing powder from sticking anywhere but on the ink.
  • Stamp the image with Craft, VersaMark, or embossing ink.
  • Pour clear embossing powder onto the inked image, making sure that the image is coated completely.
  • Shake off excess powder into the tray and funnel it back into the container.
  • Heat the stamped image only until the powder changes to a shiny liquid and rises.
  • Allow embossed image to cool.
  • Apply ink with a sponge directly to the paper over and around the embossed image.
  • 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.
