Default Removing static before embossing

Hi everyone!

I don't have an embossing buddy, so until I get one, how do I remove the static from the paper so that I don't get extra embossing powder on my paper?

Many thanks!

El

I've heard that you can use an used fabric drier sheet. Just rub it unto cardstock..

this does work I use it that way - recycle, reuse. They make good dusting rags too

Someone once told me about using a baby sock and filling it with baby talc powder. Not tried it myself, but maybe worth a go?

I usually just put a puff of talcum powder on a dry cotton face-wipe and brush it over the card. Or a used dryer-sheet, but I only use my dryer once in a blue moon and I end up losing my used sheet well before I end up with another one. I had a powder-pal type thingy and I hated it.

You can also use cornstarch in place of talcum powder. I used this and used dryer sheets until I bought an embossing buddy. I put the cornstarch in a little piece of cheese cloth and used an elastic to hold the cheese cloth closed then sort of pounced it on the place where I wanted to stamp and used the little "bulb of cornstarch" to wipe away the excess.

I've never gotten any of em to work which is why I now use clear on everything except like the sparkly stuff.
