Eileen Hull Embossing Powders! – Robot Card

Hello! I've been having more fun with Eileen Hull's new Molten Dimensions Embossing Powder and made this cute robot card for my nephew's fifth birthday. I am finding it very handy to use my old Ranger Melting Pot to emboss all the little bitty parts of projects. For a more in-depth look at how I used it, see this post from last week where I used it to emboss all sorts of small flower parts on a Mother's Day card.

Look at that cute little robot! The embossing really adds a lot of dimension:

The robot is cut using the Tim Holtz Robotic Die (which I love!) I used Eileen's new Clearsnap Clear Ink dabber to apply embossing ink to the parts. It is super sticky ink and is perfect for holding even the chunky embossing powders. I also used a bit of Rinea foiled paper for some robot parts to add a different texture and some bling.

TIP: If you need to glue parts that have been embossed, you need to make sure you have the right glue. The embossed surfaces are a bit slick. I have had excellent success with Api's Crafter' Pick The Ultimate! glue. It is a liquid tacky-glue type adhesive but it is super strong. I use it all the time for gluing embellishments, chunky metal things, etc. – it's my favorite!
