Video Tutorial Monday #5 - Heat Embossing

Hey y'all! Glad you're back for another week of some tutorial fun. :) This week, I finally picked up the Cling Dots background stamp from Hero Arts, and I've been going a little crazy around here stamping everything with it. This card is no exception. I realized that over the years, heat embossing is one of the things that has the most little tips and tricks I use every time to make the best image possible. They all work together to get a great stamped and embossed image every time. Here's the card for this week:
 And a close-up of the beautiful, embossed butterflies:
Now that you've seen what we're making this week, here's the video. As always, you can also view it over at youtube, and make sure to subscribe to my channel so you don't miss a video. :)


Supplies: Cardstock- Papertrey Ink (Berry Sorbet and Kraft), Stamps- Hero Arts (CG139 Cling Dots and CL447 Beautiful Peacocks) and Studio Calico (Butterflies from the Fresh Cut September Add On), Ink- Tsukineko (Versamark and Black Memento), and Embossing Powder- Ranger, Black Pen- Copic, Gemstones- Hero Arts, Ribbon- Papertrey Ink, Washi Tape- PrettyTape on etsy, Corner Rounder- WRMK.

Thank you for video tutorial. I love the butterfly stamp that coordinates with the Martha Stewart punch. I already own the punch but want to purchase the stamps and can not seem to locate them even with the information you provided. Would you be so kind as to either give me a direct link or a little more information. I would really appreciate it. Thank you again. -- Susan
