Create your own embossing powder effect


This is a quick post and something I want to share with you, it’s therefore off the cuff so to speak!  If you find you want to create an embossed effect but you don’t have the colour embossing powder, here is a cool trick using the stamparatus to help you with your stamp placement.

As well as your ink pad, you will need the versamark ink pad, clear embossing powder and of course don’t forget your heat tool!  I’m not a pro when it comes to videos, so apologies for any odd shots!

Of course, if you are using a one step ink pad, you would simply wipe your stamp clean whilst keeping it on the stamparatus and then re-ink using the versamark.
