Stamped it, and then added powder. Shake off the excess. Heat it with the tool. Only the results was a few dots of embossing.

At first glance it sounds like you may not be waiting *quite* long enough for the embossing magic to happen. :-)

The first few times I tried emboxing (sic!), I didn't "get it" either...then I saw it happen!

You'll know it when you see it. It's cool chemistry in action! It's fun! Burning stuff in the kitchen happens about 5 seconds later. Magic...of the unintentional variety..... So be careful not not do a Talking Heads: Burning Down The House routine...

All that info up there ^^ is awesome, too.
