Default scratch and sniff technique

I couldn't locate this in the "resources" section. Could someone lead me to where I can find out how to do this? I am thinking it involves kool-aid.

Our May stamp club used this technique, and it worked really well for us. I used equal parts of Crystal Clear embossing powder and unsweetened kool-aid. I stamped using craft ink, then sprinkled the mix on, and heat embossed. It worked really well, smells great, and still smells a week later. The girls all loved it!

I did go to a SU stamp camp in March/April and my SU demo showed us how to do it. She used kool-aid and clear embossing powder too. It worked just great! It's a great kids card to do! Lots of fun for us stampers too!

Any sugar free drink mix works. I just did one at demo camp where we used Crystal lite Orange drink mix. I still need to upload it though!

The mixture for the Scratch & Sniff technique is actually one part of "sugar-free" drink mix and 1 1/2 parts of Clear Embossing Powder. It is very important to use sugar free drink mix as the sugar in the other types of drink mixes burns and caramelizes.

Good luck,

Lynn

I read somewhere someone suggested trying different herbs that were ground VERY fine -- like oregano (did I spell that right?) for pizza using red craft ink and the flecks of the herb are kinda a neat touch. ?? I have not tried it, but it sounds cool!

Has anyone ever tried regular powder drink mix and adding Splenda or Equal to it? Like when you use cocoa or cinnamon do you add Splenda or just the powder and the embossing powder?

The sugar in the drink mix will carmelize (turn brown) when heated. That is why "sugar-free" drink mixes are used. So when you use cinnamon or something else that natuarlly has no sugar, you don't add sugar either.

I know "sugar" will burn but most "sugar free" Kool-Aid mixes have NutraSweet or Splenda in them. So this is why I was wondering if I need to put a sugar substitute in the cinnamon or cocoa. I guess this is what I mean.......

Do I use:

cocoa/cinnamon + sugar substitute + clear embossing powder

OR

cocoa/cinnamon + clear embossing powder

Sorry for the mix-up

I think what they mean is the kool aid that comes in packets without the sugar added. Hope that helps
