Yup, I have one and they're pretty much the same concept, they're nice to have if you want to outline something and just emboss that

Another inexpensive tool is a pen with erasable ink. It stays wet long enough to dump embossing powder on and heat. It's amazing, lol! (Just don't write checks with it!) You can pick these up at any office supply store.

I used to use the erasable ink pens, but I bought the VersaMarket that SU sells and I like it SO MUCH better! Much more consistent results and I get two tip sizes too. Plus I don't have the ink color coming through if I'm wanting to add holographic EP.

The Dove blender pen will also work for embossing.

Perfect Medium pens work the same as the VersaMarker. They come in sets of two. One has a bullet tip and the other pen is a brush tip. I also just discovered that the Perfect Medium pens also come in black. Very cool.

Here's a link:

In looking at Ranger's site, I discovered that they also have embossing pens. Here's a link to those.

I also use the Paper Mate erasable pen, but I do love my Versamarker. I like to squirt out a little puddle and dip it in it so I can really have it juicy and use it smoothly. I make my own drawn backgrounds frequently this way!

Same way everything gets found out! Saw it somewhere....years ago, at least 10. It was just a "thing" stampers were using a long time ago.

The Versa Mark Pen is $ 3.25 at the website Amber mentioned and it is $ 3.95 at SU I believe.

I have a versamark pen but I haven't used it yet. Your tutorial gives me something to try on my next scheduled crafting day. I am in paralegal school and can only scrap and stamp on Saturdays. Can't wait until next Saturday. TFS

You can also use it for the Poppin' Pastel technique. We have a tutorial right here in the resource section. Check Step 7.

So I of course have one that I bought and have never used....
What do you use them for?
I thought about using it for filling in the boo boo's when I was stamping and embossing

The Versamark pen is great ~ however when I went to use mine the other night, I didn't think it was coming out as much as I would've liked.. is there a way to refill it? thanks, Pam

I am wondering the same thing. Mine Versamrk pen is pretty dry as I have used it a lot. I thought I saw a recipe somewhere for a liquid that I could make and refill the pen with.

I have never tried to refill my VM pen. But VersaMark does sell a small refill bottle that is great for the VM pad. If your pen is dry & no longer performing, you might see if the nib will pull out. If so, I would think the refill product would do the trick.

Glad I came across this thread in a search! So, does this mean that embossing ink is the same as resist ink?
