I rarely heat emboss. Used to do it when I first started stamping many moons ago. Now, I probably use it 1 out of every 20 projects.

Like many others here, I love to heat emboss. I'd say that 75-90% of my cards are heat embossed. I just love the shiny, raised look. If you are going to heat emboss, I would recommend the embossing buddy to take care of static and anything else that might make the EP stick to the card anywhere other than the stamped image.

I only occasionally dry emboss with the Fiskars embossing plates. I like the result, but it's a lot of work.

I like to dry emboss and do that quite often.
I don't heat emboss at all - I can't do it well, I'm not bothered about practising to improve, so I don't do it.
Sometimes I use embossing pens (sakura glaze pens). I like those.

Yes, I know you can use a V upside down with a little piece across it and all those clever tricks but there are only 2 Vs in the thing anyway.

I couldn't do without it. Use the clear embossing stuff most often and seldom the jars of the coloured stuff.

I, too, heat emboss often. Especially on cards, because it is such a lovely effect. But my big scrapbooking tip is that I do my journalling on the computer and prnt it on vellum. While the printer ink is still wet, I heat emboss it with clear ep. That makes it water resistent, while unembossed printer ink will run like crazy if a drop of water gets on it.
