Close To MY Heart Embossing Pens and the Glue Quill Pen used with the Silhouette Cameo 4
Come Craft With Me!
We are going to play with the CTMH Embossing Pens and the Glue Quill Pen.
I am eager to find out how the Glue Quill Pen holds up to the Heidi Swap Pen that I did a post on previously. I cannot wait to get some embellishments ready to use.
You can use these pens without an electronic cutting machine, but my handwriting is TERRIBLE, so I used my machine to create the images. If you have good handwriting the same techniques could be used freehand or even with a stencil.

I have had the Close to my Heart embossing pens laying around outside of their packaging for at least a year and a half and never have used them. I got concerned of them drying up but guess what, they are not dry at all!
I have also had the Glue Quill pens for around 6 months but they are in the original packaging and unopened.
CTMH embossing pens
The pens come in a pack of 3 different widths. I used the fine tip for this project.
I used the embossing pens in my Cameo 4 machine with the pen holder to draw out the images I wanted to emboss with the Pen.
The embossing ink came out steadily without any additional pressure. I simply put them into my pen holder and they drew perfectly the very first time!
