A Trick with DCWV Metallic Card Stock

     This month I've been working on the DCWV Stack-a-holic challenges, always fun.  My background paper is from the beautiful Samantha Rose stack which has a lot of gold foil.  I wanted my sentiment tags to have coordinating shine, so I printed them out with my little Epson printer on card stock from the Metallic stack.
Yeah, you can hardly see it!  But I noticed how wet the ink was and how it just sat on the paper!  So I printed it out again and immediately poured on black embossing powder.  When I heated it, voila!  
Crisp, dark and clear!  I've heard of other people embossing right out of the printer, but my ink always dried too fast.  On this card stock, it didn't.  I loved the result.  I loved learning something new!


  1. VERY CLEVER trick!
    THANK YOU for sharing this tip Suzi :)

  2. Way cool! I have always wanted to try this but my ink dried too fast too. Definitely going to try this. Thanks!
