I also heard that you can mix in a separate jar, your embossing powder with a bit of fine glitter, and heat set once to get glitter on your embossed image.  Anyone tried this way?

Oh, Gina, I sure didn't know about this technique and just love it.........endless possibilities..........thank you so much and Merry Christmas to you and your beautiful family.  Happy New Year, too!

I haven't had complete success, either - my first try crashed and burned (I think literally) and my second looked great but the glitter did rub off.  I'm using Martha Stewart fine glitter - maybe that's the breakdown.

Sue,

The glitter changes a tiny bit because it gets embedded into the powder but not much and it still looks great.

 

A note of pre-mixing glitter with embossing powder- yes you can do it however it will not have an even glitter throughout which is why the two steps are important. :)

great share on the new technique for me.

I have a bit of twist on this technique, I take a saved empty embossing powder container and mix embossing powder and glitter together. Also I use this same idea to mix embossing powder with instant coffee, gives my stamped mugs of coffee that aroma. Can do the same with kool aid for fruity smells and last but not least... I used on this years cards a combo of glitter and cinnamon, ginger and cloves to make my gingerbread men! I usually use clear embossing powder for my mixing projects :-) This cuts it down to one step of embossing and not two. Enjoy and Happy Stamping!
