Just wanted to share what's been on my craft table lately... embossing powder! I know it isn't new, but it's totally new to me. I'm pretty much in love with this Martha Stewart Antique Gold powder.

This was my first (sloppy and kinda messy) attempt.


This is a Studio Calico stamp.


And another Studio Calico stamp.


I even broke the seal on a set of gelatos I've had for a while... They're a bit messy for me! I'm going to try again soon though. I think it turned out pretty. And now I have some baby wipes to get the gelatos off my fingers quickly :)


Do you like to heat emboss? What about gelatos??

I love reading each and every comment! Be sure to keep up with me on Instagram, Pinterest, and Facebook!

  1. Your gold embossing looks fab, Emily! I've only tried it once before, but I might have to try it again (in gold)! :)

  3. I do like to heat emboss - but I need to buy some new powder - mine doesn't seem to work well anymore - very old 8-10 years. I've tried gelatos - love the color vibrancy but not working with that medium. Your cards are fabulous.

    1. My mom had some old powders and hers didn't work well either... The gelatos are messy!

  4. Love that gold embossing powder I can see why you were drawn to it. I have a whole drawer full of EPs. You should try Judkins twinkling EPs they have glitter in them and are fun to watch melt. Haven't tried gelatos yet, not sure if I want to go there or not..LOL

  5. I love using embossing powder! Gelatos...not so much. Maybe I just need to play with them more, but I haven't found my love for them yet.

    1. I looked for some at Michael's the other day and didn't see any... this powder was from an embossing kit. I would buy this color in economy size if possible :)
