Tipster Tuesday - Embossing

Can I just say how excited I was when I learned this tip?!?!?!
It is a little ridiculous how excited I was!
And it's so simple!

Ever want to emboss in a color of ink that you only had dye ink for????
I did all the time! Especially SU inks - which dry so fast!
I tried pouring the EP really fast and embossing but that didn't work very well.
So one day I thought what if I inked my image in versamark THEN in the color ink?
Well I tried it and it worked ~ then I learned other people already did this of course!
But I was really excited!
Make sure you do the versamark FIRST
or it will mess up your versamark pad!
I now have 2 versamark pads because of this!
Can we say PURE POPPY christmas tree on my pad?
From my Cullen Christmas Card?
Remember it?
Also, smaller images work better,
I did this with the BIG flower from Fabulous flowers
to show with this post in fact (but didn't get the card finished)
in Night of Navy and it isn't as dark as regular Night of Navy -
I even tried using a brayer!
But it's still pretty!

So if you knew about this already sorry but maybe you have more tips for me!
And if you didn't there you go! Try it out!

Who is the Krafty Mama?

Hi I'm the Krafty one! :) I'm the Queen to 2 little knights and a sweet princess. I married my knight in shining armor (kevlar) over 8 years ago and I am a REAL mom, wife and substitute teacher trying to be the best I can be! I love "krafting" but tend to buy more supplies than I actually use. I love make up, nail polish, hair products and fashion but have been known to leave the house in sweats a messy bun and no make up! I love to cook and bake but am guilty of feeding my kids McDonalds in a pinch. I love direct sales and have joined too many to mention! I would love to get to know you!
