Want to know why I LOVE the heat embossing tool by Stampin’ Up!? This video tutorial walks you through the versatility of this popular card making tool.

All throughout the month of March, I have been sharing My Favorite Things and today, I want to talk about the heat tool. For most crafters, it’s a tool used to heat emboss but guys, it does SO MUCH MORE than that! I have 8 fun and super cool ways you can use your heat tool… and one of them is delicious!
