I am not exactly sure, but it might be easier to use a blue ink with the clear embossing powder…that way any residual powder is clear and won’t stain?  maybe?

There’s something you can buy in the embossing section of Michaels that basically takes the static away from your paper, so that the embossing powder doesn’t stick where it’s not supposed to. I’m not sure what it’s called…sorry….hope that helps though.

I have an "embossing buddy" I don’t know if that is what it is really called, but thats what some other people I know call it.  It looks like a mini pillow and you rub it on the paper before stamping and it removes the static (like knudsonwedding said).   I bought mine from Michaels last year.  I find it works quite well.

if you don’t want to buy an embossing buddy, a gently used dryer sheet works really well also. but like corn said, clear embossing powder with navy ink would do the trick! i love embossing…such a stress reliever!

After I stamp and apply the embossing powder and shake the excess off, I flick the back of the card a few times to get the remaining specks off.  It’s the only thing that works for me.  Then I apply the heat.
