Heat Embossing with Fabulous Florets Stamp Set

2 comments

A customer called me last night with an embossing question.  She said she has a really detailed, intricate stamp and when she inks it and stamps, it’s perfect!  But when she embosses it, it becomes hard to tell what the image is and it doesn’t look good and she wasn’t sure why.

My guess was that it had to do with her embossing powder.

Stampin’ Up used to sell 2 different types of embossing powder.  Regular EP (the "grains" of this EP were large) and Detail EP (this was a very fine powder).  Stampin’ Up doesn’t sell 2 kinds now, it’s all the same.  I was guessing that it is the detail, but wasn’t sure, so I set out to experiment.

View the video to see what I  found!

I think the conclusion here is that Stampin’ Up Embossing Powder ROCKS!  The greeting stamp that I used here is small and the potential for it to get all gunked up and blurred when embossing is high.  But with SU EP, the image remained crisp and fabulous!

    Eeek! I have a lot of old SU embossing powder. I will be dragging it out to see if it is the detailed kind or not. I love this card! Thank you so much for being the awesome person you are and for the video! :)
