CLEANING STAMPS
Baby Wipes make great stamp cleaners. Make sure to use Alcohol Free wipes (most are). Great for traveling too, baby wipes come in a handy dispenser package. Great for cleaning ink off hands as well. Frantic Stamper
EMBOSSING
Keep a small paintbrush or Q-Tip on hand when embossing to knock off any stubborn pieces of embossing powder that you don't want. Alysta Just Stamp It
EMBOSSING - RUBBER STAMPING
Handle paper by the edges as much as possible. Every finger or palm print thanks to the oil in your skin will grab the powder. To reduce static, rub a used dryer sheet or anti-static pouch over paper before making and impression & pouring powder. Stamp N Doodle
EMBOSSING POWDER
After sprinkling the powder over the image, dump off the excess powder onto a piece of scrap vellum if possible or regular paper that has a creased fold line. Tap the excess powder into the fold, then into the storage container or bag. Stamp N Doodle
