Ok....so I'm kinda new to the card making and embossing technique. I had made some cards and thought I had bought the right materials for the stamping and glitter. My glitter wasn't sticking and it just turned into a HUGE mess. I looked at some posts on here regarding this tool. I ended up buying the Marvy Heat Tool this weekend and fell in love with it! It also helped that I bought the correct glitter or should I say embossing powder...lol! This tool is so easy to use. I wish I would have bought it along time ago. Not only did I use it to emboss but I also used it to remove some paper that I had adhered to a card previously and decided not to use. I just held the heat tool over the corners where the paper had been adhered with adhesive squares. The paper lifted right up with no problem. All I can say is this is one of the best tools I've bought.
So... you say you have NEVER heat embossed?! What! I just can't believe it! If you love to stamp you will marvel at the Marvy heat embossing tool!! You want a way to heat up your layouts? Your Cards? Your Crafting? This tool will help you add dimension to all of that and you will marvel at this tool also! So, you ask.. how is it done? You stamp your image onto what ever you are working on.. throw on some embossing powder, shake it off.. flip the switch, heat it up and there you go... hot lo's, hot cards and hot crafting.. yes it is that easy! Just flip the switch on and heat it up! Embossing powders come in all colors, some with sparkle, some with peral.. open up a new avenue to your crafting... I guarante you will not only just marvel at this technique, but at this Marvy Embossing Heat Tool too!!
Oh Marvy heat tool, how I love thee. After struggling unsuccessfully to emboss for the first time with Carolee's Creations Hot Boss (which is apparently good for special effects but horribly ineffective for regular embossing), I bought this, used it and breathed a sigh of relief. Embossing is quick and effective with this tool, producing lovely results in record time. You can also use this to dry certain inks on certain materials, for shrinking shrink plastic & to impress patterns onto moldable stylus tips (heat the tip, press a stamp on it). Has a little stand so you can prop this up. Reasonably priced. This is such a great and reliable tool!
