Make Your Own Embossing Powder











Very easy and fun to make - kinda like cooking! =) I store my big ultra thick embossing powder in a plastic container with spoon (makes it less messy). The powders that I have made are in little plastic baggies (bought at craft store). I mix 2 spoon fulls of utee, a scoop of glitter, and a scoop of powder pigment and mix. I use a Versamark to adhere the powder and heat up with my heat gun. To make the flowers I inked a scrap piece of paper with the Versamark ink pad then poured the powder on; while it's still hot I added more powder for a thicker and shinier look.
