Default quic kutz with cuttlebug

ok, i just got my first quic kutz today and i think i already have to return it. i followed directions and even you tubed how to do it correctly. i think the problem is that the die with the detail (i have the butterfly one) is a bit squished. the solid die worked fabulous but the one with the detail of the butterfly didnt cut all the way through...so thankfully i kept the receipt cause i know it works....just prob a defective item ....too bad hobby lobby isnt open right now, lol

My nearest Michaels is an hour and half away! We do have Joanns closer; but they have the cuttlebug on sale; so they wont accept my coupons...

This may have already been asked (I haven't gone through all of the posts yet) but I know you can use the SU Texturz plates in the CB - but what type of impression do they leave? I thinking of ordering the SU Perfect Details but want it to leave a nice impression and at least one you can see! Any thoughts on this?

I have a set of the texturz plates and like them. The impression is just not quite as crisp as a CB folder but it is still good. Just remember to use the black plate and black silicone mat with them from SU! Here are a few things I have made using these plates.

Thanks so much! I just looked up your blog - wonderful! You have so much pretty art work on it!!!!
I think the texturz plates will be good. Now, I thought I could use like the A, B, or C plates that I use the rest of my folders, etc. on.
Which black plate do you mean? I have the tan polymer mat - is that ok to use or do I need to get the black silicone mat?

It's a black plastic plate called an impressions pad and it goes on top of the silicone mat. It is not as brittle as the cutting plates. It is for the Big Shot, so I don't know if it will work in the CB without trimming.

With my BS, from bottom to top, I use my Mulit-purpose platform (tab 1), texturz plate, paper, silicone rubber mat, a piece of fun foam, and the impressions pad. I don't know what an equivalent CB sandwich would be.

I add the fun foam because it gives me a deeper impression, but you have to be careful if it's a finely detailed plate. I just bought my BS this summer, so some of those plates I've only done a paper sample for my duotang and it's split/torn my printer paper on the really skinny lines; I don't know if they would damage cardstock with the added layer of fun foam, but if it does, I'll try misting it with water first.

there isn't a black plate for the Cuttlebug. I read on a thread from the UK, not to use the black plate in your Cuttlebug because it will break the CB. They said that it is too thick to use. This is just a little note that I saw.....

I have used the Fiskars Texture plates in my Cuttlebug before. It doesn't make a deep embossing design like the Cuttlebug.....but, it does add a bit of texture. There is a sandwich recipe I used......

Plate A
Fiskars texture Plate,
Cardstock to emboss
tan Wizard pad,
cardstock shim
Plate B

Remember each Cuttlebug is different....so, think "thin" when doing your recipe. Try it first without the shim. Add the cardstock shim if needed.

I'll have to look and see if I had another one....

Here is another recipe for the Fiskars texture plates using the Cuttlebug.....I used this one too.

A plate
1st embossing tan mat
card stock
Fiskars texture plate---design face down that you are using
2nd embossing tan mat
B plate

Just a side note......I did have to run it through the Cuttlebug a couple of times to get the impression I wanted.....

Have fun exploring all the possibilities, Sue. It's smart not to start off with too many dies, Nesties, and embossing folders until you experiment and decide exactly what you want to do with it.

Your tan mat should work the same as the black silicone mat. This is how a crisp impression is achieved without using an actual folder. The black plate is from SU! and it is a bit thinner than a B plate and allows it to be used with the embossing mats and the extra thickness of the texturz plate. It is also more flexible than a B plate. These do not need to be cut down for use in the bug. I have used them for months and have not had any problems with the plates or the bug itself. Each bug is a bit different and you should never have to force the sandwich through the machine. I don't know of any other sandwich to build with the bug if you use the texturz plates. Two B plates will be too thick. One B plates and a bunch of chipboard shims may work if you make the sandwich between the A and B plate.

Okay I know I have tried a bunch of different sandwiches before with the texturz plates and had trouble so I just did a search and there are two ways to make the sandwich for the Bug with the texturz plate. This is the sandwich I use.
CB A plate
Texturz plate with the side you want to use facing up
Card Stock
Black Silicone Mat or tan wizard mat
SU! Black impression Pad

The second sandwich is this:
CB A Plate
Texturz plate
Card Stock
black silicone mat/tan wizard mat
B plate
several card stock shims

I have tried the second sandwich before and it did not work that well for me. The impression was not as pronounced and I had to fiddle with it a lot. I have tried using the C plate instead of the B plate and it is too thick.
I also have the rubber plumbers gasket but prefer using the black/tan mat.

I just bought a Cuttlebug second hand from a friend of mine. (She bought the Big Shot from Stampin' Up). I have picked up a couple of folders at Walmart, and a large pack of them at Heather's Stamping Haven in Ottawa, Ontario (Canada). I think I am going to have a lot of fun with this tool. I love my cricut, and use it all the time too. The only problem is that the closest scrapbooking store to me (Michael's) is about an hour or so drive, and I find them insanely expensive. (Cricut cartridges are around $120) I have begun the process of applying for my passport. I used to love going across into New York State and going to Joann's, they always have such great paper, etc. (I love the DCWV paper that I can often get for $9.99 a pack there, whereas here it is $39.99). Does anyone know if Joann's carries a lot of Cuttlebug stuff?

Yes, Joann will stock enough to keep you busy for a while. I usually buy my embossing folders through them. I also don't have a craft store near my home and travel 1 1/2 hours to go there. In fact, I buy most of my supplies on line or from Joann's. Have fun! I use my bug for nearly every project I create.

Hello, I'm new here and I hope someone can help. I have a Cuttlebug and know how to use it (that sounds dangerous!) but I'm stumped on how to use the "Formal Squares". This is a small embossing folder with two swirly corners next to each other. Is there any way to use one of the corners in the upper left of my cardstock and the other in the lower right? Or do I emboss and then try to cut out around the swirls? Or do I take the embossing folder and use my hubby's bandsaw to cut it in half? Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

Thanks! I think I'll go ahead and order one of the SU texturz plates and the Black Impressions pad. This was a very big help since I really like the Perfect Details from SU and wanted to order it. (I'm like you - live about an hour from the nearest craft store, so I also order on-line quite a lot)

Emboss and then cut. I wouldn't cut the folder. It is already small enough. I think I have this one and will have to check my supplies. You can cut it out as a triangle if it is the one I am thinking of and don't need to cut around the swirls if you don't want to take the time.

Default QuicKutz embossing folders?

Does anyone know if the QuicKutz Embossing Folders can be used in the Cuttlebug? I just found the QuicKutz folders recently.

I have personally never used QuicKutz, although I do want some, which is why I did not give a yes or no answer.

Is there a secret for getting a clean cut using the SU Sizzlits with my Cuttlebug? It cuts through DP like butter...but I'm always left having to use my craft knife when it's cardstock I'm trying to cut. Or it leaves fuzzies on the edges of the die-cut...

My sizzlits work pretty well but there are slight differences from one machine to another. Sounds like you need to add a piece of card stock as a shim. Are you placing the sizzlit with the cutting side up as directed?

Default stencils in the cuttlebug

Can I put my ? Creative Impressions ? stencils through the cuttle bug to emboss them?

Did I get the name right? these are the ones usually dry embossed with a light table or now used with a paste

do you know the ones I mean? they are the brass stencils

I have the cuttlebug and cricut expression and to me they are very different. I don't cut with the cuttlebug, just emboss, but love them for different reasons. The little bug is affordable and you can use with variety of products, the cricut costs a lot more and then always wanting more carts and of course the gypsy....I am happy we have options to meet our different needs and budgets!

Hi all.
I hope it's ok to ask here...
I am looking for the "how to's" of embossing with the Nesties using the Cuttlebug?
How do you stack the plates/mats in order to emboss?

I'm not very good at that.... lol

stampinem,

I use plumber's gasket to emboss Nesties in my CB, but if you have the tan mat (I think) from Spellbinder's, use that instead. I use:

A plate
B plate
paper to be embossed (inside the Nestie on top of it - see next layer)
Nestie (facedown)
plumber's gasket
B plate

If you're just wanting to emboss (not having cut first), I have no idea how to help you! HTH!

Hi stampinem...

After I cut out a shape with Nesties in my Cuttlebug, I run it through one more time with a piece of craft foam. It's those little squares of bright colored soft foam meant for children. But we're all children at heart. Right?
That makes an embossed edge on the cut out piece.

I recently read Julie Ebersole's post about embossing without cutting. It looks so cute to make an embossed circle or oval around an image. Wish I could find her post for you. But here is how I did it... (the "sandwich")

... A plate
... C plate
... Foam mat
... Cardstock (image side up)
... Nestie (sharp side up)
... scratch paper *
... B plate
You might need to play with the "sandwich" depending on what thickness of foam and cardstock you use.

* The piece of scratch paper is just in there so you can remove the Nestie from the B plate more easily.

Nicole Heady also has a Cuttlebug tutorial on embossing a card front without cutting: http://nicholeheady.typepad.com/capt...07/07/5-1.html

Default Foil for embossing

What foil have you used for the embossing folders? I have the Christmas Tree folder and the one with Christmas bulbs. I've seen some beautiful cards made with foil.
