Ink up the stamp with the WOW embossing ink and stamp on to your Magnolia. 

Sprinkle the WOW gold powder over your stamped image and, ensuring your heat tool is hot, heat set the powder. Move your tool as soon as the powder starts to turn, to avoid warping the card or burning the powder. 

Set to one side.
