Woo-hoo! Thanks, UpsideDown for all your great tips! I printed them out for future reference. Like you, I use clear embossing powder probably 95% of the time. I, too, give my cards a good tap or two with the side of a pencil on the edge of the card. Though I enjoy my cat's company when I'm card making, I don't have a problem with cat hair or dander getting into my stamping supplies or finished cards.

What I REALLY find annoying are those tiny little bits of stuff (thread? fluff?) that seem to get mixed into the EP, and trying to remove them before using the heat gun is an exercise in patience. I have a very fine artist's brush that has about 5-6 hairs that taper to a fine point, and if I dampen the brush slightly, I can use the point to pick off the errant bits of fluff before embossing. I've also heard that you can use a piece of dry spaghetti. You moisten the end of the spaghetti and then you can pick up stuff with the tacky end.
