    Hi Chaz

    Are you looking to get the stamped image tacky so that glitter, foil etc can be used instead of embossing powder? Or are you looking at just using embossing powders?

        Ooh okeydokey here's my advice on it all....

        To heat emboss with embossing powders I personally use the Versamark ink to stamp the image with, this ink stays a bit sticky so the embossing powder really 'takes' to it well. You can also use any pigment inks too like the Emboss Pens to heat emboss.

        To stick glitter, foil, flock etc to the stamped image you can either use a glue stamp-pad (general opinion tends to be that these aren't particularly good) or Stamp N Bond powder which gives really good results. You stamp the image with ink as usual (again Versamark works well) and then sprinkle the Stamp n Bond powder over it and heat like you would with embossing powder...it will become clear and tacky and that's when you can apply the glitter etc, press it down and shake off the excess - looks fantastic

        Hope that helps
