Embossing with Fiskars plates and cuttlebug

  1. Thanks for the video & the instruction.
    Can anything else be used instead of the embossing folder from Spellbinders? Do you know if fun foam or anything else can be used?
    Thanks,
    Lori

    from bottom up

    A plate
    Fiskars plate
    cardstock
    rubber
    chipboard .. I used the packaging cardboard that somes with one of the cuttlebug plates
    B plate


    the impression is not as deep as with the embossing mat.

  8. I have owned these Fiskars plates for a couple of years and never used them. I am so excited to find out that they will work in my Cuttlebug. I tried it right away and it works great! Thanks for the cool tip.

  10. I've used a cut silicone cooking mat. works perfectly. Fun foam compacts in time and does not have a crisp embossing image a the end.

  12. I bought some of the Sizzix Texturz embossing plates this weekend hoping they would work in my Cuttlebug. Do you know if they will? Are there any special instructions (like sandwich layers) to make them work? A video tutorial would be great!! Thanks in advance...I love your blog!

  18. Hi,
    I need some help. How can I emboss different size envelopes ? I have tired a couple ways, but it does not look right. Also, any ideas for just embossing the flap of the envelope ?
    Thanks,
    Ellen

    A hundred thanks for this. I have been putting off buying a die cutter and embosser for quite some time now. I also have some Fiskars plates but didn't realise they went through the Cuttlebug. From what I have seen available I have always thought the Cuttlebug the best due to it's size, capabilities and the convenience of being able to store it. Nothing will hold me back now from going out to buy my very own Cuttlebug!!!!
