Default Cuttlebug and SU texture plates--Help!

Can someone out there in cyberland please tell me the correct stack for using the "bug" and SU texture plates? I am either having a "senior moment" or am doing something awfully wrong! Thanks!

I will look for the stack document here but I just do the A C plate B and a shim if I need too. However, If I remember the plates may be thicker and it sounds like it is breaking the Cuttlebug...it is not. Oh, and hold your tongue to the left.

Iactually use the silicone crease pad and also spritz the paper with a little alcohol. My sandwich is: A plate, texture plate, cardstock, crease pad, shim, B plate.

It is a tight fit, but embosses beautifully!

HTH!

Yup! What she said. Actually, there was a thread a couple days ago about this. I posted a pic of the results I get with the Fiskars texture plates. It seems a lot of people have problems getting a good impression from the plates, but I've always had really good results with the Fiskars. The Sizzix plates designs aren't as deep as the Fiskars, but if you use a silicone sheet and spritz your cardstock, you'll still get a decent impressions. Here's the link to the post with my picture of the impressions using the Fiskars texture plate:

Thanks for the suggestions....but...what is a crease plate or silicone sheet. And where would one get one? I'm feeling really "behind the times" as I struggle with this one! But...I'll get it!....eventually!

I got the SU one (pg. 205 in new catty, "Standard Texturz Silicone Rubber") *sorry, jut realized I said crease pad on my previous post when it's really a silicone pad!*, but I've heard people using craft foam or even a Plumber's gasket from the home improvement store. It's a more pliable material than the B or C plate, so when you place it on top of your card stock and run it through, it almost helps "smoosh" the paper into the plate and get a good impression...

Hope this makes sense!
