Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
Q: Joan asked: "Where can I find some info on Impressabilities? I got one quite a while ago and tried to see if I could use it but no luck - it wouldn't impress onto cardstock. I used the Cuttlebug plates recommended for Spellbinders. Any help you can steer me to would be greatly appreciated."
A: We did a product focus on Impressabilities back in April of 2009. On the right side of that review you will find a couple of tutorials for Impressabilities. In the tutorial the sandwich layers for Cuttlebug and Big Shot are mentioned under the Variation.
 
Feedback From Past Tutorials
Minnie has a suggestion for the Shaving Cream Technique: "I tried it a long time ago and used drops of food coloring which also worked very well. I didn't have reinkers back then."
