Default dummy question! snowflakes

Hi,
My sister and I are trying to duplicate something she learned at a workshop a while ago, but she can't remember how it was done. Pretty simple, I am sure. She has blue cardstock with raised, sparkly white snowflakes. How did they make these stamped snowflakes sparkle? We've tried everything we have on hand!!

Thanks,
Denise

Could have mixed Dazzling Diamonds in with White embossing powder, or could have used Irridence Ice ep or hologram highlights ep. THat would be my ideas!

I emboss in clear on white cardstock, sponge around the snowflakes and then use Stickles or Sparkles in clear to hit and miss edges of flakes for a really sparkly effect. Another way to do it is to EP with clear sparkle EP, available anywhere!

Easiest and mess free way is to:
1. stamp snowflakes in white craft ink (remembering to push down on the pad ever so gently so the ink does not mush too much)
2. Emboss in Irridescent Ice Embossing Powder. If you like Dazzling Diamonds glitter you will also love the Irridescent Ice. It is so parkly and gives a nice luminous shine-I love it on dark colors as well as light!

Question white craft ink?


Hi,
Is white craft ink different than the "Classic Stampin Pad" white ink? Cause we tried that ink with white embossing powder mixed with Dazzling Diamond and embossed. Didn't work. Just got shiny, but did not stay white.

Denise
p.s. would white Stazon ink work?

Not too sure if you have it over there but I use tinsel embossing powder here in the UK. It's like a white embossing powder with glitter mixed in? Mm couldn't you just use white EP and then add your own glitter, would that work?

Hi Denise, Craft ink is wetter/thicker than regular and Stazon. The craft will work the best. Versamark is also stickier and will hold embossing powder. The regular (pigment) and Stazon inks aren't wet/sticky enough to grab the embossing powder (EP). I'm not sure about chalk inks and whether the EP will hold to that. Anyone know?

Good luck with your project. It sounds pretty neat.

You can emboss with the S.U.'s chalk pads.

Thanks for that feedback. The Whisper White Stampin' Up ink pad is craft ink. They do not offer a white pad with their classic ink in it. I haven't used my white ink pad yet but expect to soon for making Christmas cards. Anyone else have trouble with SU's white inkpad? Should I look for something else?

To emboss you really should use any pigment (not dye) ink. SU's calls theirs craft ink. But there are several brands of pigment inks. You can use Brilliance, versacolor, versafine, and colorbox. You also have lots of different embossing options, as mentioned by previous posters. Have fun !

Try also before putting the Dazzling Diamonds glitter on the white craft ink to put on heat and stick powder just as you would emobssing powder. Heat it slightly until sticky, then put on the Dazzling Diamonds, it'll stick wonderfully! Hope that's helpful!

Also if you use dark blue or black use embossing buddy to cut down on static cling.

IfI was using dark card stock I would use a dryer sheet to reduce static as the embossing buddy can leave a white residue on your cardstock.
