I am getting ready to start working on my invitations. We are doing embossing in a few different places and I have practiced the embossing on reg paper before I touch the “GOOD” stuff. Well I need some tips about how I get the extra powder off the paper. I seem to everytime end up with extra little pieces of powder sticking around to nothing and it leaves it looking funky. How do I stop this?

Brush it away with a dry soft paint brush.

I had the same trouble! my advice: get an embossing buddy. It’s a little pouch that you rub over the paper before you stamp, and it makes the powder not stick to other parts of the paper. If you can’t find one, I’ve found that if you put a little corn starch in the end of tights and rub it over, it’s the same effect. Good luck!

I went to get any embossing buddy, and they were sold out, so they lady gave me another idea. Take and old nylon or cheesecloth and put baby powder or cornstarch in it. Then brush that over the paper before you stamp. I tried it with the baby powder, and it worked great. Just make sure to double up on the nylons, otherwise you get too much on the paper.

Thanks for the tips. I did my first 20 envelopes this morning and it seemed to go good. They aren’t perfect but I love them just the same. 60 more to go!
