Embossing with any ink

When I attended my first Stampin' Up! workshop, I was taken with the idea of using a pigment ink (Stampin' Up! Craft) and then clear embossing powder to create an embossed image.  I just loved the look.

I still do yet Stampin' Up! no longer offers pigment inks and really, I don't want to invest in pigment inks just for the few times I do embossing in a particular color.  With this technique, I don't have to.  In the short video here, I use the Stamp-a-ma-jig and some Versamark to help create an embossed look with virtually any ink.

In this longer video, I use the same technique and create the Christmas card above that uses current  SU! stamp sets Rejoice and the Medallion background stamp.

Hope this helps you get a bit more out of your products.  Thanks for watching!
