Apologies if this has been discussed before - I'm new to the group - but can
anyone tell me how to remove excess or loose embossing powder before I
emboss a card?
TIA,
Jen.



Re: HELP PLEASE!
Turn the card upside down and tap it lightly with your finger over a piece
of paper.  If there's still a few pieces of powder left you can use a small
paint brush to carefully wipe them off the card (don't touch the image).
Heat the embossed card image with a heat gun to melt the powder.   Pour the
excess embossing powder back in the jar for later use.  Have fun.

Plus, before I stamp, I always pounce my cardstock with ...what IS that
thing called? ... it's a little pillow of powder, I've heard the contents
are actually diatomaceous earth (hi, Pat!!).  Anyway, use that first, and
lots less of the e.p. will still be stuck where you didn't want it after you
give it that tap that wave jumper recommended.

HTH,
Alison

Hi. (-:

Look, an actual question about stamping!

I was beginning to think everyone had given it up and gone on to other
things ...

Yup.  I've just about given it up, and haven't found anything to go on to.
I have 6 images that I stamped and painted about 5 weeks ago, still sitting
on my worktable waiting for me to come and turn them into something.  Poor
little lonely images :-(

Re: HELP PLEASE!
Try rubbing the paper/cardstock/whatever with a dryer sheet before you stamp
the image.

Hi Jen,

All of the tips so far have been good.  If you use the dryer sheet
method (I do), be sure to use a *used* sheet, as the ones right out of
the box may leave an icky residue on your paper.

Sincerely,
Risible
