You use them to stamp embossed images. You need embossing ink pads first and then you stamp the image, sprinkle with the powder and use a heat gun (or other heat source) to emboss the image.

I use them alot, but I would recommend a heat gun (sort of like a super hot hairdryer) you can get them fairly cheap at craft stores. I used to hold the sheet over a stove burner but it ended up curling the paper (not so nice looking)

I got my embossing gun for about $12 at AC Moore on sale. And I took advantage of the current sale to buy a new bottle this weekend. Wink I only have three so far though.
