Question Fiskars Texture Plates~ HELP!!~

I bought two of these in a package, and the little round rolling tool. I tried it and it makes lines on the one side of the cardstock. What am I doing wrong?? How do you use these, for embossed look???

Yuppers. I bought 2 six-packs with 12 total images per pack with that little rolling tool and I am having a terrible time with it. I get lines all over the back and the image isn't very clear. I could use some help too.

I use my templates in my cuttlebug. I tried that rolly tool but I couldn't figure it out and someone said to use it with the CB...

If you don't have one, hopefully someone has a helpful hint!

I didnt think the fiskars templates fit in the Cuttlebug, I thought they were too big..Now I cant wait til I get my bug ( for my BD I found out). I am not crazy about using that round thingy to emboss those templates.

Could you use a rolling pin like they say you can with the CB? I actually just got the CB and look forward to trying the Fiskars stuff...

I'm in the same boat!! I just got my cuttlebug though and I think the textured Fiskars plates are too thick. I don't wanna try it because I don't want to crack a plate or something. The little rolly thing does a crummy job though!

I have those fiskars plates, and I used wax paper between the paper and the rolling tool. You will still get those funny lines in the back, but your roller bob thingee will move smoother. I tried using it with a regular brass template but it wasn't as nice!

I hope this helps!

I think I have every one of those texture plates they've made. Far and away the best tool to use with them (other than a Big Shot or Cuttlebug, which I haven't tried) is the EK Success Empressor, which has a rolling ball on one end.

The lines on the back of the cardstock aren't nearly as noticeable when using this, you get a clearer impression and you don't subject your wrist and hand to nearly as much wear and tear.

Also, and I almost hate to say it, they work better with the cheap cardstock from the value packs at Mike's. The cardstock is thinner, it impresses more easily.

Another thing to try (which I haven't yet) would be to spritz the back of your cardstock with water to dampen it just a bit. I know someone posted on a blog that they did this when using the texture plates in the diecut machines; I would think it would work when doing it by hand as well.

The Fiskars Texture Plates DO fit in the "Bug"! Your impression will not be as deep as with the CB Folders, though.

I'm going to try this - I got these as a Christmas gift and have not had any luck with them at all.

I've found that by lightly spritzing both sides of your cardstock before inserting your "sandwich" and then adding cardstock shims on top of the "sandwich", the Fiskars Texture Plates come out pretty deeply embossed. I hated the little round Fiskar tool, so I was pretty pleased that I could finally use the 12 Texture Plates I had purchased two years ago.

When I bought my textured plates, they were out of the "little round thingy tool." So, when I brought them home, I used my bone paper folder. Sometimes, I used the pointed end, and sometimes I just used the side of the bone folder. You do need to press hard; not too hard or you can rip the paper. But, you can always stop, pick up the paper and look how things are going. You do need to go slower this way, but I did get a much deeper imprint. I did go back and buy the round thing, but, again....I do get a much deeper impression using the bone folder; although, I do used the round thing sometimes. I just love the impression, though. A beautiful background without too much work!

I have several of these templates and I love them. They did take a while to get the hang of though. I also had that round 3 prong thingy for making the impressions. I find that you have to apply quite a bit of pressure and you move the round 3-prong thing in circles but if you do that, you get a very good impression. Yes, there are lines on the back but since I'm always layering, that hasn't been a problem for me. I think I will try lightly misting the cardstock with water to see if that works, but really, as long as I put some muscle into it and do circles, it seems to work.

Has anyone tried using the texture plates in the BIG SHOT? I got it to go through, but the texture doesn't come out onto the cardstock. I can't figure out what to do. Any suggestions?

The owner at my local stamp store showed me how to use the Empressor to scribble on the reverse side with a lot of pressure and you will get a nice textured look on the front.

I use mine with my Big Shot, BISK and the MPP. The BISK stands for Big Impressions Starter Kit and MPP is MultiPurposr Platform. I had to purchase mine seperately. I lightly mist my Cs with H20 before runing it through the Big Shot.
the sandwich needed is listed on the BISK package and also on the MPP. Best of all the BISK comes with 3 double-sided texture plates. One is paisley and I forget what the rest are. I have posted this info before in a similar thread on the Big Shot. Do a search and you should be able to find it. Good Luck!!

I have found that if I am doing the embossing by hand (with a bone folder or the rolly thing) that the cheaper the paper the better as the heavy SU cardstock has not taken the image very well. I haven't tried moistening the paper, but I will try that next time.

Default Fiskar texture plates and 65lb paper

I have tried embossing the SU paper with the fiskar plates and the results are not too good. I tried misting the paper a little and also soaking the paper wet as well. The paper would curl up if I soak it or the image would not be too good if I mist it.

Finally........ Office depot came to the rescue. I found a pack of 65lb Wausau Stardust paper on sale for $9/250 sheets. I cut it into 4+3/4" x 5" and emboss it using fiskar 'lace' plate in the CB. Beautiful result without the water bottle. Very elegent if I must say so myself.

The sandwich goes like this ( from the bottom ):

plate A
another fiskar plate that you are not trying to emboss with
a piece of foam sheet
the fiskar plate that you WANT to emboss with
your paper
plate B

I hope this will help. I have tried all sorts of combo for the past 2 weeks since I got my beloved CB. I am now using this cheaper 65lb embossed paper as my first layer on top of my regular sturdy 80lb SU paper.

I have learnt so much from all of you nice and intelligent ladies for the past 2 years. I hope this time I have something good to contribute back to the community. God bless you all.

Default one more layer in the sandwich

Sorry, there should be 1 piece of 65lb paper, slightly larger than the one you are trying to emboss, on top before you put the plate B on. The correct sandwich is like this


plate A
another fiskar plate that you are not trying to emboss with
a piece of foam sheet
the fiskar plate that you WANT to emboss with
the 65 lb paper you are trying to emboss
another piece of 65 lb paper
plate B
