How to Stamp and use Embossing Powders?

 
You will need:
  • A Stamp
  • Pigment Ink or Versamark Pad
  • Heat Gun
  • Anti-static bag (optional)
  • Small paintbrush 
  • Embossing Mat or Pricking Mat
A good tip is if your stamp is NEW to apply some cellotape over the rubber side and gently press with your fingers over the tape, then lifting and  applying the tape again to you have gone over all the image. This removes any dust, dirt etc. from your rubber stamp.
First of all use your anti-static bag to wipe over the card or paper where you will be stamping, as this helps to remove any static and fingerprints.  Place your card or paper onto a solid surface or embossing or pricking mat ready for your next step.
Next place your stamp Rubber side up and gently tap your ink pad  onto your stamp, making sure you cover all the stamp surface. Then turn your stamp over and gently place the stamp rubber side down where you would like the image to go. Be careful not to move it or your image will be blurred, press firmly with your fingers or your knuckles. Then carefully lift the stamp off.
Sprinkle your Embossing Powder over your stamped image don't worry about sprinkling too much on as you get yourself a sheet of paper and tip the excess onto it, gently tap the back of your card to get off any loose powder and you can also use your dry paintbrush to remove any loose bits of powder that are not on your image. Now you can put the unneeded embossing powder back into the container for next time.
When this is done you then use your heat gun (not a hairdryer as this will not work) holding this two to three inches away from your image, slowly moving it over your image as you see the powder changing. Be careful not to leave the heat gun in one area to long as you will burn the powder and it will go flat. You now have your finished result.
