I wanted to try the Mboss powders on a stamped background. Use a circle punch to ink the paper with VersaMark, sprinkle Mboss in Valentine, and heat set. I think it looks cool! Love that golden sparkle together with the bright red!
On kraft cardstock, stamp the main Kitten image with VersaFine Clair in Acorn. Detail with color pencils and fussy cut the kitten.
Stamp “Hello Sunshine” on a scrap piece and mount on a flag. Assemble all the pieces together on the embossed paper, mount on dark red paper. Apply washi tape and adhere kitten stamped image. A cute card made in just 30 minutes!
This month I had the pleasure of using Imagine’s new Mboss embossing powders for my projects. They are fine embossing powders that come in a lot of colors and glittery combinations, for instance: Valentine which is red and gold, New Year’s Eve which is black and gold, as well as special effect powders like gold metallic and new solid colors. In this project, I used glittery color combinations Valentine for the dress and New Years Eve for the background, purse, and sentiment. Check it out!

Using a dress template or die cut, cut out a dress from watercolor paper.
Place dress on foam and burnish the back side of the dress with a stylus. The dress will take on a curved shape giving it a dimensional look.
Ink the front of the dress with the VersaMark ink.
Apply Valentine Mboss Embossing Powder and using a heat tool, melt the powder. These new embossing powders come in a bag, in this image I added some powder onto a dish so that you can get a good view of this awesome color.
Using the VersaMark ink, stamp a background image. Apply New Years Eve Mboss embossing powder and melt the powder with a heat tool. Do the same on the “Happy Birthday” sentiment and purse.
Adhere a ribbon sash to the waist of the dress. Apply On Point Glue to the edges of the dress only and glue onto the card base. This will help to keep its dimension.
Assemble the card with the dress, birthday sentiment, and matching card base.
Thinking back when I did my first heat embossing, it was pure magic. That feeling of amazement and wonder hasn’t left but has been ignited once again with the amazing Mboss from Imagine. The new embossing colors are simply amazing and really are over the top beautiful! You have to get some for your stash to experience true magic! Take a look at how I used mine for a fun color-blocked effect.

Tape off areas using washi tape on a white cardstock panel.
Use your VersaMark inkpad and ink the taped off sections only by tapping the ink pad onto the cardstock.
Use the Mboss packet and sprinkle the powder over the inked areas. Peel off the washi tape and then heat set the Embossing Powder using a heat gun.
Use StazOn Pigment Piano Black and stamp Happy Birthday sentiment onto a blank area of the embossed panel.
Stamp elements onto white cardstock and cut out. Add a little color using Memento Markers.
Adhere the stamped elements onto the embossed panel with On Point Glue. Add diamanté and finishing touches.
With summer being just around the corner, be ready by making a sea-themed bracelet for your vacation swag. Use the Mboss embossing powders to cover metallic charms, such as starfish, seahorses, and anchors, to add color to them. This tecnique is simple and not too demanding to make; match it to your color palette of choice and add even more Mboss-ed charms.
Skill: Advanced Time: 1 hour
Press the metallic sea-themed charms on the VersaMark watermark ink pad, cover with the different colors of Mboss embossing powders and heat set. The VersaMark is a tacky ink and will stick to the metal charms long enough to receive the embossing powder.
Cut 3 x 10 inch long pieces of the wax cord (you will adjust the length of the bracelet later) and secure them at one edge.
Add just a small drop of On Point Glue to the other edge of the cords to keep them from fringing.
Start adding beads and the charms you covered with Mboss Embossing Powder in step one to each of the three cords.
When you have about 2 inches of the cords filled with beads and charms, place all cords through a large hole bead. This will give your bracelet some nice structure, but it is an optional step. Repeat steps four and five until you have around 7 inches of bracelet.
Continue adding beads and charms and at 7 inches long secure the edges and add the closing caps. Adding a chain to once cap will make the the length of the bracelet adjustable. Add the hook to the other cap.

Mboss – Shimmering Night Sky, Birthday Party, Princess Party
For Today’s card, I used a few Memento Dual-tip Markers and the gorgeous Mboss Embossing powder by Imagine. I did a very light freehand sketch of a unicorn on some watercolor paper and colored the hair, ears, and flower using the Memento Markers. I used a brush and some Ink Portion No 9 to blend the dyes and to get a watercolored look.
Once the paper was completely dry I painted the horn and ears with a fine brush and VersaMark ink. I poured the Hologram Mboss and melted it with the heat gun. I finished the card by adding a sentiment “Rainbow, Glitter & Unicorns” in black. The card is super simple to create and the sparkle you get is amazing. This is a cute card for baby shower invites or a birthday card, even for a kid.
Hi everyone! Today’s video highlights the VersaMark ink pad, which I’m sure most of you have heard of. (If not, come join the party!) It’s the sticky, clear ink that makes heat embossing super fun and easy. But did you know that you could also stamp with the VersaMark ink pad, and even use the “direct-to-paper” technique? Click on the video and learn how you can stretch the use of your VersaMark ink pads by using it 3 different ways. Two of the techniques are paired with Imagine’s new Mboss Embossing Powder. These two products are a match made in heaven!
