Betsy's Blossoms - Dye Based Ink - Heat Embossing

This is one of the cards we created at my Technique classes this month.

There are various ways you can use your Dye based ink pads when Heat Embossing and this card showcases one of the methods.

Firstly ink up your stamp using Versamark. Then ink again over the Versamark using your chosen Dye based ink pad. Stamp your image and cover it with Clear Embossing Powder before Heating with your Heat Tool.

The result you get is a little lighter than just stamping with the original colour, but it's lovely nonetheless :o) And ..... you can emboss with any colour. So if Stampin' Up! hasn't got Embossing Powders in your favourite colours, you can still produce a similar effect really easily :o)

With the new Firm Foam ink pads, you don't even have to use Versamark. After the image is stamped, the ink stays wet long enough to hold the Embossing Powder. You must ensure your pad is nice and juicy though!
