Embossed Dasher

Sharing one of the cards from Holiday Card Buffet.  This was a very simple card, and involved the first stampin' technique that had me wow'd.... wet embossing.  Can't tell from the picture, but Dasher is embossed with clear embossing powder.  A simple tip for you, if you only have dye-ink, aka Stampin' Up!'s Classic ink or quick dry ink.  Stamp your image in Versamark first, then stamp on your inkpad.  Followed by embossing powder on top and heat set with a heat gun.  DO NOT USE A HAIR DRYER!  That'll just blow your powder everywhere.  Anyways, Versamark provides enough "grab" for the embossing powder.  No need to get separate pigment ink!  Yeah!!!

My Supplies List (all supplies and images by Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):
Stamp Set(s): Dasher, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Soft Suede
Paper: Soft Suede, Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke, Mocha Morning DSP
Accessories: Modern Label punch, Word Window punch, silver brads (non-SU), clear embossing powder
