Ink and Emboss with Asian Flower Stencil

Hi, friends, Chark here today to show off my new Ink and Emboss Holly Mini Cubes. I had no idea Hero Arts even did an ink/embossing powder combo. Well, they do and they all match. This set was intended to go with the holiday stamps. I used the red embossing powder with the Asian Flower stencil and Versamark ink instead…and oh my goodness! I love this embossing powder! It melts into shiny bright red goodness, perfect for the holidays and anything you want to glam up. I think it would be perfect for holly berries, candy canes and sleighs!


It’s a little difficult to see because I stenciled and heat embossed on shiny gold paper, but the red looks just like a candy apple but I resisted the urge to lick it 🙂

I tried it on several papers and it looks just as yummy on white paper, vellum and gold. It dries a little too dark for some papers…the red doesn’t stay as red when there’s green under it, but I did use the clear Versamark ink and not the red ink it came with…it might possible make a difference.

I cut the glossy red embossed paper into ornament shapes and then adhered them to a photo Christmas tree paper. The happy is from a Hero Arts Happy Birthday set. I have the word Christmas stamped inside from another stamp set.


This one was fun to make and I’ll be using this embossing powder for more glossy red fun in the future.

Happy Friday!
