Heat Embossing Issue

Melissa Jackson
I had a customer email me this problem.  I double-checked that she was using white and not clear.  Any suggestions?

"I have been trying to make one of the clear stamps "white", stamping it first with the versa marker, first, then putting on embossing powder, then using the heat tool,  but must be doing something wrong.  I watched the video you sent me and have been following instructions, but must something is off for sure, because I am not getting the stamp to turn white after putting the powder on and using the heating tool.   I am trying to put the image on rather dark blue card stock and like I said, I am getting blue on blue, rather than "white on blue" like I want.   The good news is, it is still pretty and I can use it the way it is, but would still prefer image to be white.   Any ideas on what I could be doing or not doing....."

Wasn't there a problem a while back with some clear powder being mismarked as white? Perhaps she's had it a while and it's actually clear.

Melissa,

Two things:

1) Make sure she didn't get one of those mislabled embossing powders - see this SU! update on Sept 25th: http://www.stampinup.com/us/enu/25150_25842.asp

2) To get a better white on dark cardstock, suggest that she use the White Craft pad instead of Versamark.  This will help to block some of the dark cardstock and when combined with White C/S will give a much nicer white.

Sounds like she is using clear embossing powder and not white. Remember they both look white in their container.
