You’re probably heating it for too long or holding the gun too close to the paper, so it’s burning. It turns dark and yellowy around the edges when it burns.

Have you tried finding an ink pad in the color you like with clear embossing powder? I’ve found that it’s much easier to find inks than powders in the right color. Clear embossing powder is also much easier to use on dark paper, as you can’t see any residue once you heat it.

Hope that helps!

Yep, you can. I like Color Box inks alot — the ink pad seems to not dry out after using it for a while (for, say, 100 save the dates!). Hobby Lobby has NO ink colors, but I’ve found that Michaels has a decent selection. Paper Source (in the stores) by far has the most I’ve seen. But I’m sure you can order online too.
