You also live in a drier climate where static is more of a constant. We have the opposite problem here most of the time. Our high humidity keep inks & paints from drying as fast as one could hope. Yes, I can use a heat tool, but not on all stampable surfaces. I'd rather wait 3 days than melt the acetate I spent time stamping & coloring. I'm just odd that way.

Good thing those Crocs are just zapping and not snapping at your feet!

First I use a unused dryer sheet (as some of you have already posted ) and rub it all over my card stock. Then insted of ink I use a glue stamp pad (if I am using color embossing poweder). Stamp you card then put the embossing powder on turn it over give a small flick of the finger to the back (also already posted) then if there is any left over I use a very small soft paint brush to wipe away unwanted stuff(again already posted). I guess I'm doing a repeat of what is already said but that is the order I do it all in lol. Don't know if I'm helping or just taking up forum space. Hehe.

Hi, I also find that tumbledrier sheets work, as they're anti static, also the microfibre dusters do the job. It can also help to heat the image from below, helps to stop stray powder blowing around.

You might experiment with some talc powder or cornstarch if the cardstock is light colored in place of purchasing an embossing buddy? Worth a try if you have those items? May not work so well on dark carstock but worth an experiment to see if it helps. Do this of course before you ink the cardstock etc...lol

Like the previous poster said, you can use talc powder, baby powder or corn starch. To help you apply it to your project, put some of the powder in an old small baby sock (or other sock) and rub it over your paper. It will help you control the powder. I would store the sock in a plastic baggie so that it would be ready for the next use.

I only use ultra high gloss clear embossing powder and that way no pesky specks... if I want color, I use a colored pad.
