"When I did my acetate wedding card using this stamp set, I also had a bit of trouble getting it to melt smoothly on the bride and groom since the image is so big and flat.  (The sentiment embossed fine.)  I ended up heating the image,…"

"I totally agree with Cheryl about the small stamps.  Also great for a bunch of stamps and do one stamping.  Especially when making a number of the same cards like for a set.  Do one stamping on a scrap paper, then line all your stamps…"

"I have had issues with embossing too in the past and find that after adding the embossing powder to an image, I then heat the cardstock from underneath. It takes a bit longer to emboss but it eliminates the separation of the granules better. And,…"

"I use it for small stamps too, Lisa.  It has grid lines which make it very easy to line things up. "

"The stamp press sounds like a great tool for large or solid stamps.  I tend to push down too hard and unevenly and get smudged images.  I do a lot of "do-overs" when I use these stamps.  This sounds like it may solve…"

"I bought one of those Fiskars Stamp Press (stamping stages, with the cushioned feet) I have arthritis, amongst other strength issues, and it works like a charm for pushing down and walking your fingers all over the stamp press. The four…"

"Yeah, Judy, great tips.  I also heard about lengthy exposure to air, length of time (expiration date), etc. having adverse changes on embossing powders.  Also, heard to keep putting back into the jar after every use, instead of…"

"I do a lot of heat embossing and have realized what some of the others have said.  It's important to stamp on a nice flat surface to get a solid lined image and you don't have to press so hard with the versamark.  Secondly, and…"

"Just had another thought.  Old embossing powders can become pitted. If your embossing powder is old, try new embossing powder. I've had that issue. "

"I'd suggest you contact support and see if there's an issue with the stamp itself.  It should work on any paper."

Just received my "Always and Forever" stamps from gina K. LOVE IT!!!!  Am having issues with embossing it.  I think I have enough ink on it (Versafine) and when I stamp it the "bride and groom"  the stamp is good the embossing is very pitted.  I've tried reinking the stamp pad, using Versamark, and still not happy with the results.  Any suggestions?See More
