Q: I can’t get all of the embossing powder off my project before I heat it. What do I do?
A: First be sure your ink is dry before trying to remove the excess. Once the ink is dry, you can use a paint brush to remove any extra powder. Lightly, tap the project on a surface and be sure to tap the back of the project which will, also, help. Using an anti-static bag before you stamp is a great way to keep this from occurring, too.
Q: I can’t get the details to emboss into my Spellbinders Nestabilites. What am I doing wrong?
A: You will need to use the rubber pad that goes with your machine and add it into the embossing stack of plates as given in the instructions to your embossing machine. These pads are made so that the paper is pressed into the die more for the details to be more defined.
Q: I love to work with fabric. Is there a way I can use it on a card to make it match the gift?
A: When using a blending tool you want to use a very light touch and start with a circular motion off of the paper. Adding the ink to a craft mat and starting the motion on it is a great way to do it. Also, when using a light hand you will need to build up the color by layering it onto your project.
A: When using a wet glue the bumps are caused by too much glue being used. I would suggest using a tape runner which is better to use on paper.
