I love that idea, what sort of paint or ink would be suitable for metal?

I've used alcohol inks (the Tim Holtz brand) on metal - looks wonderful. Just make sure to apply the inks before embossing if you want a full cover of colour. The embossing is deep and distinct and you can't really apply the inks easily then.

I used soft drink cans that I washed & cut up with scissors (not my good paper scissors ). It tends to flatten out a lot after being run through the 'bug. And they are thin enough to also use with the cutting dies.

Do you prepare the edges in any way to avoid cuts, especially if you are applying to something others might handle?

Thanks for the advice...yes, I'm using the Sizzlits as directed...they just don't slice the SU cardstock very clean...I will try the extra CS for a shim and see how it goes...

Just so you know, the page inside the nestabilities has a sandwich listed for the CB. Makes it so much easier in case you forget. I got my first ones a few months ago. Love them!!

This is what works for me. It seems that the tension for each Cuttlebug is different so you may have to play with it ( 1 or 2 shims) and see what works best for you.

* Stack from bottom up

1. "A" plate
2. Sheet of card stock (shim) cut to fit size of "A" plate (You may not need this at all or you may need 1 or 2 sheets to get a good embossed edge. I used 1 but I guess it also depends on the weight of the paper)
3. "C" plate
4. Nestibilitie face up
5. Card stock over nestie.
6. "B" plate

Run through Cuttlebug.


According to what I read if you just want to cut the shape don't use a shim. If you want the embossed edge then use a shim.

I just bought a Cuttlebug and am having a heck of a time to get the die to go thru the machine. I have switched directions of the plates which helped a little. Does anyone have suggestions? I can't turn the handle, steady the machine and push the plate through at the same time!:

What type of surface is under your machine? The smoother the surface, the better the suction works. Since you need a hand to steady your machine, that suggests that the suction isn't holding well enough where you've placed it.

Do you have another area that you could try? Something like a glass-topped table or a smooth kitchen counter? When it's on the right surface, the suction should attach firmly. You also shouldn't need to push the plates through after you get them started, since turning the handle will pull the plates through on its own. When I'm using my Cuttlebug, I tend to keep my left hand on top of the machine while I'm turning the handle with my right hand.

If you are still having problems, post back again. Lots of experienced Cuttlebug users have subscribed to this thread and should be able to help you.

Try my formula above. I find that almost every tool I have purchased has to be played around with before I am able to work comfortably with it. As I mentioned above it may be that the tension on your CB is tighter then usual. Good luck and let us know what works for you.

Whever you do, don't force it! Are you sure you are using the right stacks? You shouldn't have to push the plates through. Remember that the C plate is thicker than the B plates. C is for cutting, like with nesties and B is for embossing, like with the embossing folders. Good luck!

Thanks for responding! I am using the B plates and the rollers have rolled hard enough without pushing the plates through that they have left marks on the top B plate. I will give it another try. The top B plate is now bent and sits like a bowl on the table. Don't think this is what is supposed to happen.

I have some B plates that bowed. If your stack is that tight with A plate, and two B plates. Try only using one B plate, and some cardstock or chipboard shims. The die should be facing up, so I would stack from bottom up A plate, shims, die, cardstock and a B plate.

You may want to call Provo Craft. Good luck!

Mine was like that when it was new. I just flip the b plate over and use it until it straightens out and keep flipping it to try and keep it straight. It stays pretty straight these days. When you run your sandwich do you put your top plate over the front edge an inch or so to get things started? I have to do this with mine a lot.
There are lots of video out there on using the bug so check those out too. It always helps to see it in action.

I also keep one of my b plates as a cutting plate always. If you switch back and forth you can get cut mark impressions where you don't want them on your card stock.

Are the cut edges something to be concerned about.

Yes, but there are some things to take note of. The bigz dies will fit through the bug using a B plate on top and bottom for the sandwich. The problem is this, you need to use 4 B plates to make the sandwich long enough. Using 4 B plates will place a crease on your paper where the two plates butt together. Sometimes this is fine and other times not. The other thing you can do is purchase the XL extender plates and cut the long side down. These plates are just a bit too wide to fit the bug so if you know someone with a bandsaw your'e in luck. You can also try and locate a plastics distributor and show them your B plate and tell how wide and long it needed to be and see if they can cut some for you or cut down the premade plates. The die itself fits fine, the plates for the sandwich is the problem.

Thanks it seems to be working better now. Next problem, I ordered texture plates from SU and use them with the rubber mat and testure pad. Now it is alomost too thins to wind thru. do I need to just shim this? I will try putting the top plate an inch ahead of the stack and see how that goes.

Thanks
Vic

It has been a while since I have run a texture plate through mine. I usually run it through most of the way and then back the opposite direction to get a sharper impression. Mone doesn't feel that tight but still does the job. If that isn't working for you, start with a piece of CStock to shim and work your way thicker if it needs it.
When I get a sandwich that works well, I write it down and keep it with my folders and dies so I have it to refer back to.

I apologize if this has been answered before, I've been through many pages and have done a search but didn't find anything. My problem is with the fancy tags dies. They cut just fine going through the cb but the problem becomes getting them out of the die. The small swirls stick in the die and I have ripped many trying to get them out. I very carefully use a paper piercer or an xcato knife to try getting them out of the die but I usually wrinkle them or rip them completely... I've used the static pillow thingy on the die before putting on the cs thinking that might help release the paper but nothing seems to work. Thanks for any help!!

Could it be the glue that the foam was stuck down with? I had to use goo gone one time on one, and only one, in a set. psst--a little goo gone goes a long long way I found out the hard way!!!!

I think I saw somewhere that if you use waxed paper/freezer paper it will help with this problem; pit it against the die before your cardstock/paper you are trying to die cut.

The wax paper worked like a champ!!! Thank you Sharri!!!!!!

Linda, thanks for the tip with goo gone.... The dies I was having problems with were the spellbinders but I will remember that for the cb dies.

Linda, thanks for the tip with goo gone.... The dies I was having problems with were the spellbinders but I will remember that for the cb dies.
You are most welcome. So glad it helped....nothing worse than wasting paper and TIME!!!

Has anyone had trouble using the "flourish" quickutz in their cuttlebug? Yesterday I bought the revolution die and I can't get it to cut the cardstock I watched a You Tube tutorial and used the same sandwich, A,B,cs,die,C and it will not cut! Any ideas?

Didn't it come with a shim sheet of white paper? I've only had this problem once and putting that shim under the die fixed the problem. I would imagine almost any piece of paper that isn't too thick would work.
