To make your own anti-static pad to eliminate embossing powder sticking to fingerprints, etc.; bundle some bicarbonate of soda (baking soda) into an old hankie or piece of material, secure with string and wipe over card, glass, plastic, or anything you want to emboss. Stamp the image, emboss it and you will have a professional finish every time - no more smudgies. This will save you a few bucks in the long run as everyone has a bit of soda in their cupboard.

Wow!! Thanx Leanne for this great tip. It seems like no matter what I do (fabric softner sheets), I always get stray pieces of embossing powder. I'm for sure going to try your tip. Again, thanx!!!
