By | Product Tips | No Comments

Hairdryers do not get hot enough to melt the embossing powder and generally blow too hard. They may blow the embossing powder right off the paper! Stampin’ Up!’s high-quality heat tool makes embossing quick and easy. You can also use this handy tool to heat set pigment inks on chipboard, glass and cloth. To order the heat tool, visit My Online Stamping Store and click on ‘Shop Now’.  Enter code 100005 in the search the store box.
