Designer Embossing- a Technique and a tip

This information I got from various blog sites as well as "Stampin Success" June 2009 and when I tried it I was "wowed" .

Designer embossing involves white embossing on any of the Designer Series papers.  Here's how to do it as well as some helpful tips.

1.  Use a dark-coloured Designer Series paper.  This will make the white embossing really pop.
2.  Make sure the stamped image coordinates with the Designer Series paper or at least complements it.  You don't want to create a pattern that is too busy.
3.  Choose large images to emboss such as "Upsy Daisy" or "Inspired by Nature"
4.  Stamp the image with VersaMark ink, but rub an embossing buddy over your paper first.  The embossing buddy keeps the embossing powder from sticking anywhere but on the ink.
5.  Cover the image completely with White Stampin' Emboss powder.
6.  Shake off the excess powder.  For a clean look, use a brush to gently remove loose specks of powder.
7.  Heat the image with a heating tool.  Hold the tool 4-6 inches away to avoid burning your paper.
