Undoubtedly, Embossing is the jazziest way to enhance a stamped image. The raised, shiny plastic coating adds a whole new dimension to stamping, and you'll have non-stampers wondering how you've achieved such a professional look.
The Embossing technique is easy to do!!!! Stamp the image to be embossed in embossing ink and sprinkle embossing powder quickly over the wet stamped image. Remove any excess powder from around the stamped image by lightly tapping the paper. Use a heat source to make the powder melt and give the raised embossed effect. The powders melt around 200-300°; some suggested heat sources are an embossing heat tool, toaster, light bulb, hot plate, or iron.
