a Little bit disappointed Jul 11, 2011
I'm a beginner in heat embossing and I thought this set would be great for me...but I was wrong.
1.The clear stamp is beautiful and quite useful.
2.The stamp pad is OK. the Gold embossing powder is great, it give a very beautiful effect.
3.The green embossing powder is OK to me, but the effect is not as beautiful as the gold one.
4.The Black embossing powder it terrible, the effect is very ugly, it's bleed on my paper. and I will never use it on my work.
5.The embossing ink pad is terrible, it didn't hold the embossing and every time I use my heating gun on it, a lot of embossing powder was blow away. I use a pigment ink pad instead and turn out to be Great!
My suggestion: Don't pay more than $10 for it.

Embossing Kit Review Jan 16, 2011
By Elmer McKey
Photo is misleading; Of course it's my fault due to not reading the description better as the photo shows a heating device that is not included in the kit. Perhaps product should be labeled "Heat Embossing Items from Martha Stewart" (Heat Gun Not-Included).

Highly dissatisfied! Dec 25, 2010
By Sophia Grey
Very unhappy that the heat tool is shown in the picture but is not actually included. This is VERY misleading and disappointing to find out on Christmas eve that the gift the person wanted most of all is incomplete. It does say on the BOX that the heating tool is not included, LOL!

Martha Stewart Falls Short with the Embossing Starter Kit Apr 06, 2013
I completely agree with the review by "Kitty." My review might be very similar but I'll post anyway in hopes the team at MSLO will make an improvement. This kit has so much potential to be great but just falls short.
-all stamps included are very elegant.
-Antique Gold embossing powder is absolutely beautiful.
-includes an acrylic stamp mount(small)
-could have included "with sympathy" or "thinking of you" stamps.
-Embossing pad isn't liquid enough to hold the embossing powder from falling off. VersaMark embossing pads are 100% better at holding the powder.
-should have included an embossing essential.. an anti-static cloth.
-something needs to be done to tie this Kit with the Heat Tool (which works very well)but is sold separately ...that's another review.
To sum up; Purchase this kit specifically for: the gold powder, maybe the black and green, which work better with versamark, the nice stamps esp. the butterflies which almost match the new Layering Punch Garden Butterfly and the small stamp mount.
-To prevent the embossing powder from blowing away from the heating tool, heat from underneath the cardstock.

Would not recommend buying the kit since there are much better embossing products out there on the market. The heat wand works just fine but the embossing products are sub-par.
