Anti Static Craft Pad for Heat Embossing Review & Giveaway

Happy Tuesday!

As you may know from past blog posts I am currently in love with embossing. It's like alchemy watching the powder turn into liquid. 

After having a play I remembered why I wasn't so keen on it the first time round. The embossed images weren't always perfect and I ended up with powder where I didn't want it. That's just the perfectionist in me!

I noticed on many tutorials that people used pads to wipe the surface.  I did a bit of research and found THIS pad on eBay which I bought.

I used it and found it to be very useful. All you do is wipe your surface with the pad and it absorbs any grease or finger prints. You then stamp your image using your embossing ink pad and use your embossing powder and heat as usual.  The results are great - no more embossing powder where you don't want it!

Here are a couple of cards I made using the pad:

I would like to offer TWO of these pads to TWO lucky people! All you have to do is follow my blog (if you're not already) and leave me a comment below by 13 February 2017.  I will pick TWO winners randomly on Valentines Day (14 February 2017).  This is open to all crafters in the UK.

I hope you'll join in!
