@Mrs Franks: I embossed the flourish on my invites, and all i know from what i found about embossing is the ink is best if it is pigment ink not dye ink.  the pigment ink stays wet longer and it needs to be wet in order for the embossing powder to adhere.  but be careful with the stamp before you dry it with the heat gun, if you happen to touch it accidentally, you’ll have a mess on your hands 🙂  i had to throw many out because the ink would smear-granted i used black ink and a clear embossing powder.  i found that if i used the black embossing powder, if there are any little specks of powder on the paper and you heat and dry the powder, those colored specks are there-for good.  Best of luck!!

I used RubberStamps.net and ours turned out great.  We uploaded custom art along with plain text from their site and I got an email from them the next day with a suggestion and sample proof for how to change it slightly to make it look better.  I was really surprised but pleased with that level of service.  My stamp was very reasonable and I found a coupon code by searching online.  Bought stamp pads and embossing tools locally – just got the stamp from them.
