Default Looking for nice embossing powders

I am about out of embossing powders. I had some from Copper Kate from ebay and some from many years ago. What do you like?

My personal favs are ZING. I find I use silver a lot and the ZING has a lovely even coverage and a smooth glossy finish. Other silvers I've had tend to tarnish too easily from over heating but the ZING is more forgiving. The gold and glitters are lovely too.

If your are into specialty powders, Lindy's Stamp Gang makes many two toned varieties. I've got a couple of them and I'm very happy with the results.

My absolutely favourite one though is a Silver Glitter called Silver Lightning by Ailson Ellis Designs. It's a bit pricey, but it gives me stunning results and I just love the amazing sparkle it has. Its an Australian brand.

I am enjoying Zing as well, and also the Ranger embossing powders.

I really like Zing and Lindy's too.

Another line of beautiful powders (multi-toned, pearlized, lots of colors) is Opals. You can buy them from amstamps.com (After Midnight stamps).

Faves are Queen's Gold by Ranger; White Detail by Stampendous, and clear (don't know who it's by because I no longer have the container.)

I also have some called "Platinum" a friend gave to me in a small container, so I don't know who makes it. I absolutely love this EP. Would anyone know who makes this?

Another vote for Lindy's two tone EP. They are so beautiful. I have a couple of Zing powders and I love those too.

I am a little biased but I use Stampin' Up embossing powders. I have had the best of luck with them. I got some cheap embossing powder when I first started scrapbooking & stamping, I HATED embossing. I tried ONE of SU's powders...now I am hooked on embossing!!! I love the coordinating colors!!!

Nice thread here to learn what's out there. I never heard of ZING, Lindy's or Opals embossing powders and wonder where do I find them? Presently, I use Ranger clear, detail black, gold and others. Don't know what gold it is as the label is gone. (Could be the Kings Gold for all I know....someone mentioned the Queens gold! LOL.)

I really like Stamp A Mania's embossing powders. Their silver is the best I've used - and I tried a bunch before I tried SAM's. They have a set of glittery powders, some nice matte colors and pastels.

Thanks for the recommendation on the Zing. I saw it at Hobby Lobby and was going to start a thread to ask about it. Now I'll just go get some!

I like the SU powders too.

I love the Ranger Antiquities line of powders. They give a matte, mottled look. One of the powders is "rust". and it looks just like rust. I also love the Judikins Rustique powders. I also love the Ranger Tinsel powders. Very sparkly! My most used are my Ranger fine detail clear, and Stampendous fine detail white.

I really want to try the Frantage powders by Stampendous. They look cool!

Hi,
You should be able to get Zing at most major craft stores. My LSS caries it too.
The other EP I mentioned is from "Lindy's stamp gang". Google the phrase to see their online store or use the phrase in a YouTube search and you will find all kinds of videos showing their sprays and EP.

LOVE my lindy's stamp gang powders. I also recommend Tim Holtz distress powders. Sometimes I combine the two. I have did this on a video and it adds so much texture and sparkle at the same time.
my YT is whimsical endeavors if you are interested.

Hello Ladies I am new here and trying to nav around here. I need help with a storage of my inks. Small foot print as possible. Any ideas? Something sturdy and I have 0 wall space. How to do you store yours? Currently mine are in two drawers and it is a pain.
