I liked heat embossing before but I was such a messy embosser! I would have little splatters of powder on stuff I was trying to emboss and it just looked like.......well to be perfectly honest it would look like CRAP! *okie makes a very sad face*. People on the Cricut message board would talk about an embossing buddy and how wonderful it was. I got to make my first ever Stampin Up order and one of the things I ordered was an embossing buddy.....MAN OH MAN I AM IN LUV!!!
Tonight was the first night I have gotten to try the embossing buddy. I decided to play around with the stamp set I got and try some embossing. Let me tell you that little pillow of white dust stuff sure made a HUGE HUGE difference! For the first time ever I got a clean crisp embossed image! You can click on the picture for a close up shot and see for yourself.
So the embossing buddy is my tool of the month recommendation!!
I didn't do any embossing on the envies but I did use one of the stamps that came with the set to jazz the envies up a bit. I think the leaves gave the envies just the little bit of extra to tie them to the cards.
I do have to say I am really liking the Stampin Up stamps. They stamp wonderfully!! *okie sighs deeply as she realizes her first order will not be her last*
