What kind of paper are you using?  What kind of ink pad are you using?

Whenever I emboss I use Embossing Ink Pads (like these) and I’ve never had a problem with the ink going through the paper and I’ve embossed on all different weights of paper.

@FutureMrs.Notch: It usually has to do with the ink you use.  The OP is using colorbox which is a great ink.  If you are wanting something light, try the Tim Holtz line, he has some really good stuff too.

Also heavier weight paper would make a difference 80 or 100lb cover weight paper is usually pretty opaque.
