I have a very simple, but valuable tip for you today. Heat embossing is a very fast way to make a big impression. And it's great when stamping on a dark cardstock layer, like I did here with the Merry Christmas sentiment from the Many Blessings Stamp Set.
I'm not a big fan of heat embossing because, if you aren't careful, that fine powder can get everywhere, leaving a very gritty work surface. I can't stand a gritty work surface and I have to stop everything and clean it up.
On a scale of 1-10, heat embossing is probably a 8 or 9 on the WoW! factor scale. However, it can make a downright mess and ruin your project if you don't turn your ceiling fan off first! (Ask me one day how I know this!) Trust me on this. You'll be glad you did!
