How to make your own diecut embossing template

Last August, I showed you how to make your own template to emboss a diecut with fine details. Torrey and I have put together a video tutorial for this technique because so many of you have sent questions about how to do this. I have broken this down into more than one in order to get each one under you tube's 10 minute limit. So, one per blog. That will give you plenty of time to play and experiment!

You can double click on the video and it will take you to youtube. You might be able to see it a little better/bigger from there. I will also put in the direct link to youtube. We are having just a little too much fun making videos this week before she goes home to Texas!

You can purchase Wonder Goo from me ($4.95 plus shipping) or from After Midnight Stamps

Here is the basic quickutz die assembled:

Here it is compared to the one that we embossed from our template:
