See How To Create An Amazing Card Using Mboss

by Roni Johnson

Bring up the word embossing in a group of paper-crafting people and 9 times out of 10 they are going to say they only use embossing to outline a stamped image. Well, embossing is so much more than that. Today, I want to share one of my favorite embossing techniques that I like to call “painting” with embossing powder or in this case, Imagine’s new Mboss Embossing Powders! In addition to the traditional white, black, clear, silver and gold they have a wide range of color and spectacular glittery powders to work within cardmaking projects.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 30 minutes


Step 1

Cut a piece of cardstock to the desired size. If desired, swipe or dust the cardstock with an anti-static tool/bag.

Step 2

Position the stencil over the piece of cardstock.

Step 3

Use a sponge dauber to apply VersaMark ink over the upper third of the stencil.

Step 4

Remove the stencil and shake the first color of Mboss powder over the wet ink. I started with Shimmery Night Sky. Shake off the excess powder and return it to the handy stand up pouch for future use.

Step 5

Heat the powder to melt; let cool before moving to the next step.

Step 6

Carefully reposition the stencil over the already embossed area of the card and ink up the middle third of the card again using the sponge dauber and VersaMark ink.

Step 7

Sprinkle the next color of Mboss Embossing Powder over the inked area; shake off excess and return it to the pouch.

Step 8

Use the heat tool to melt the powder.

Step 9

Repeat steps 2-5 for the final third of the card. And you’ll be left with an amazing design bursting with color, texture, and dimension.

Step 10

Mount the panel on a black card base using Tear It! Tape; stamp the sentiment with Nocturne VersaFine Clair ink on scrap paper and affix it to the card using On Point Glue.
