Heat Tool Review and Heat Embossing how to

Hello Everyone,
First of all, thank you so much for the amazing response to my Dream cut review. All of your comments just kept making me smile...Thank you everyone..

Today is review from me, this time its again for the Itsy Bitsy store. Today I am checking out their newly launched Heat Tool.

As I have done in my Dream Cut video...I have used this tool, first time on camera. So whatever you see, is exactly what I feel.
The video looks long, but its only 15 mins long. The rest of it is a sneak peek of all the new Cardstocks that Itsy bitsy has come out with, and were kind enough to send to me for review.

To give you a brief idea, I am showing you how to get started with Heat embossing, and what kind of embossing powders to use with what kind of images. And small tips and tricks to getting colored embossed images and How to emboss on Vellum without warping or burning the Vellum.

So without further ado, lets get on to the video.

Unboxing and First Impression of the Dream Cut Machine andddd a Surprise!

Sooo, Hello again

And lets get started, because it is going to be an insanely long post to read and watch!! Hehe Yes..I have got two videos lined up for you today! and some surprises in the end!

So Rashmi Harish, owner of Itsy Bitsy calls me up and asks, Have you seen our latest release? Would you like to try out one for a review.. I have to admit, I had no idea what she was talking about.
Because, during the release, I was abroad on vacation and kept off social media (well, almost did)
When I found out, she was talking about a die cut machine...I was like WHATTT?? Hell yeah! 😍 well not those words, but I was immediately on board to check out the new Dream Cut machine.

It arrived in 3 days, and they generously sent me loads of materials that the machine could cut, so I could try out everything. So I was very excited to check it out and I did an unboxing video. I show everything that comes in the machine, as well as how to assemble it.  You can also watch it on my Youtube Channel in HD here

Then I went to town experimenting and playing with it.
In the descrption box on Youtube, I have listed the time stops, if you want to just watch a particular aspect of the just die cutting or just embossing etc..Do check the description box on the following video on Youtube here

ETA: I ended up cutting the acetate, felt, fabric, and canvas with my Bigz dies, and they cut flawlessly! So you can rest assured, these all these materials can be cut with the Dream Cut and the Bigz dies.

Also let me show you how Dream Cut compares in size to my current die machine, the Cuttlebug. Isn't it cute and compact? I will totally enjoy its addition to my craft room!

Now a little bit of technical specifications

Body is made up of high impact Polymer with smooth edges for easy handling.
1.       The platform & the frame is made of high quality, non – corrosive Alloy.
2.       The cog wheels ( gears ) are made of high speed steel for durability & rough use.
3.       The gear tips are smoothened to give excellent user experience.
4.       The Roller diameter is larger than many other standard machines to increase the point of contact with the cutting die which enables to get a superior cut quality.

5.       Roller mounts are designed to give a bit of cushion which helps in proper pressure distribution on the cutting die.
6.       High precision in the Casting and Assembly of this unit will last a long time compared to other machines.
7.       The cutting plates are made of moulded Acrylic which has self-healing properties compared to Acrylic sheets which are used in other machines.
8.       The Bevelled edges of the cutting plates is a great feature which puts slow pressure on the Rollers and really gives you a Dream Cut experience!
9.   Spare parts  and support from Itsy Bitsy will be made available.

Thank you Team Itsy Bitsy for this amazing machine and an opportunity to review it. I would definitely recommend it to all crafters especially Beginners who want to jump into this awesome hobby of cardmaking and scrapbooking! 

The Dream Cut is available online (remember it comes with free shipping) and can be purchased Here or visit your nearest store.

 So if you have made it this far, THANK YOU!! Now the 2nd most exciting part of the post!

My Facebook page crossed 10K likes a few months ago, and I had been looking for a perfect giveaway. So this will be the first of a series of giveaways. I plan to have random, unscheduled and out of the blue giveaways in the next 6 months 😃

So If you watched the Video , you know what is up for grabs..So I will not mention it here!! (Insert Evil have to watch the video for it! )

I am back to blogging after almost a year..and I am so glad to blog for a Celebration! I am guest posting for the Mudra Birthday Blog hop today!


Hello and welcome to our “First Birthday Blog Hop”!

 You should have arrived at my blog from the most talented Rhizwana's blog..if not, please start your hop from Mudra's Main post and follow along the hop

I'm sharing some cards made with the amazing "Let's Party" set from Mudra. What better than a birthday cake for a Birthday party eh??

I repeatedly stamped the cake slice stamp and heat embossed in white.
Colored with my Zig Markers..
The sentiment is popped up on foam and a layer of vellum for added interest. 

I absolutely loved stamping and coloring this card...
Finished off with some sequins.

Now I want you to wear your goggles..I wanted to bring PARTY, RAINBOW and CAKE all in one card..and also try something new..

 I tried my hands on a Diorama card, but with all funky colors of the rainbow! 
Stamped and colored the images with my zig markers.
Dug into my stash for scraps of pattern paper..added ribbons to make it look like presents..
Added hand cut banners in the background and on the top..
some clear wink of stella over the cake (not too visible in the photos as such)

Look at the dimension..its faaabulous!

I had sooo much fun making this card...want a tutorial or more detailed post..Ask me for one..and I shall put it up! Thank you for stopping by my blog today!
