Embossing with Dye Ink

Two Paper Divas recently had a new release and if you haven’t checked it out, you REALLY need to! You can go HERE to see all the new stamp sets they have in their shop! Today, I will be using the brand new “” Stamp Set to create my card for today. You can check out the video below to see how I did some heat embossing with dye ink!!


I started with a piece of white card stock that measured 4″ x 5.25″. In the top center portion of the card I stamped the sentiment “” in red dye ink using my MISTI. I then wiped off my sentiment stamp, inked it up again using Versamark Ink and stamped directly on top of the red ink. I was then able to sprinkle on some clear embossing powder and heat set the image! This allowed me to use a red dye ink and still heat emboss!

With my sentiment stamped I used a circle die to cut a piece of masking paper. I then applied my circle mask over the sentiment to mask it off. Using the anchor image from the stamp set and Versamark Ink I repeatedly stamped the anchor all over the white panel. I then removed the circle mask and sprinkled of silver embossing powder. Because of the mask you will have some of the silver powder stick where you don’t want it, but a small paint brush will remove any unwanted powders. I then heat set all of the silver embossing powder.

To frame the sentiment I used the same circle die that I used to cut the mask nested inside a slightly larger circle to create a frame from navy cardstock. I adhered this around the sentiment using glossy accents. I then popped up the white panel using fun foam and double sided adhesive onto an A2 top folding red card base.

Now that I have this trick up my sleeve I have no need to buy all the different colors of embossing powders, especially since I’ve collected so many inks over the years! I hope you too will pull out some of your dye inks and give this technique a try!

Also, be sure to head over and check out the rest of the new release from Two Paper Divas! There are so many great sets that are new this month!!

**Some items may differ from what I use specifically (the embossing powders), however, these are the products I recommend. Sometimes I buy products, but I’m not 100% happy with them, but continue to use them until they’re gone!!**
