Question Has Anyone Tried This Technique Using The Cuttlebug?

Has anyone tried the "frame with embossing folder" technique using the Cuttlebug instead of the Big Shot? If so, what is the correct 'sandwich'?

See link: Stamp & Scrap with Frenchie: Stampin'Up! Embossing Floder/ Frame.

Thanks for letting me know.

Default I Found the IndigoInkling version of this, but a few extra steps

Here is what I found on the Indigo Inklings website using the 'bug; she includes a few extra steps, but I'll have to play around to get this right.

I was hoping to find someone who has done this with the bug using Frenchie's technique.

I tried this in a class with a cuttlebug. We used chipboard as the frame and the sandwich (from bottom up) was A plate, emboss folder, chipboard frame, C plate. Hope that works for you.

If you use a thinner frame, you might have to stick a few pieces of cardstock to use as shims.

Did you make the chipboard frame?

After watching the You Tube video, I found two frames at M's. They were packaged in the wood working type area on pegs. I bought a rectangle opening for $1.29 and the oval for .99. I used my big shot and the result was awesome. I have already started Christmas cards using this technique.

The woman who taught the class made the frames. She said used a heavy duty die cut machine at Ben Franklin to punch them out of chipboard.

I also saw a video where a woman cut 2 or 3 of the same design from cardstock on her Cricut and then glued them together so they were thick enough to use as a frame.

Default Found a better way for this

Hi Ladies
I been playing with this for a few day and I found a better way to do it and easier. I'm Frenchie the one that posted the video here but I will have another video done this weekend and it will be on my blog Wednesday October 20/10 at Stamp & Scrap with Frenchie so come check it out Wed. I'm telling you it is way easier and it will be easy to apply it with the Cuttlebug.

I just stumbled across this thread and watched the video. I do not own the Big Shot or Cuttlebug but I do own the original red Sizzix. I have always wanted to try this idea. So I went to the craft counter, cut my template out of thick cardstock, ran it through my machine and viola it worked.

Thanks Frenchie for sharing your video with us.

Hi Frenchie,

Thanks for the heads up about the new updated version of this technique. I can't wait to see it. Boy, Wednesday Oct 20th seems like a long time...

I found this video tutorial using nestabilities and you can make your own frames from chipboard:

Super, super cool! I just made my own template using 2 layers of cardboard from a cereal box. You can see the card I made here. I then added glitter around the "frame" which hides the transition from embossed to smooth cardstock. The glitter version is here. The sandwich I used (from top to bottom) is 1 cutting plate, embossing folder with cardstock in it, my cardboard template, then the multipurpose platform on tab 2.

I also just made a frame card using the Cuttlebug. I found the wooden oval and rectangle frame at Michaels, each 99 cents.

My sandwich from bottom up was: A plate, embossing folder, wood frame, B plate, 2 SU cardstock shims.

You should experiment with the shims because too much or too little pressure will affect your framed image!

I have used this method for quite a while. I have used Popsicle sticks, cereal box cardboard, wooden shapes from mikes (bears, flowers etc). They all work pretty good but the sandwich is different with every form or shape. Adding or taking away shims can be time consuming but once I find the key I make sure I write it down. There are a few card samples in my gallery if anyone wants to take a look.

I would suggest after finding your center, take a pencil and draw around your embossing folder, that way in the future all you need to do is make sure it is in the pencil lines.

She also has a video on using other materials, so you don't have to cut up your embossing folder.

Just a thought, haven't tried it out because I am not a home with my supplies for another 10 days....
Photo mats might work in place of the frames....They come oval, square and round in a variety of sizes....wouldn't break as wood might. I am going to try this technique when I return home as I have a huge stockpile of photo mats from my other passion Photography.

Here's the site June was referring to:
The Stamp Pad

June, your shop looks like it would be so much fun to visit. I will have to try this technique as I have so many embossing folders and this is another way of using them. Thanks so much. Will be back later to visit your website.

WOW, I guess all of June's posts were removed as I was replying. hmmm

QUESTION: How do I post the solution to this embossing folder frames without using my web site? I have figured out the perfect easy solution that we all use here in OHIObut each time I post my web site it doesn't allow me to post it. How can they contact me?

Good morning! Welcome to Splitcoaststampers!

I sent you a private message on 6/29/11 explaining why we deleted some of your posts from this thread. If you need help navigating and finding the message box, let us know.

We'd love to have you share your helpful tips here. I know it sounds simple enough to insert a link to your own tutorial, but if we didn't have some kinds of guidelines set up, our forums and gallery would be filled with 'go here and see this' or 'check this out'. Being sent on a chase for information becomes frustrating for our site members and visitors, and it's disrespectful to the advertisers who support the site, so we don't allow it.

You can find the Splitcoaststampers Site Posting Rules linked at the bottom of each page of the site. The specific section that applies here is advertising/solicitation. If you have questions, let us know. We love friendly new faces, and we're happy to help!

Thank you for the note...I am not familiar with using the site but saw so many asking for information with regards to this technique and had no way to give so many the solution. Am I permitted to put my email address so they can get the solution? I am sorry for not knowing the rules, just seems there should be some way when so many users have a technique question to get the answer to them. Thank you for being able to reply directly to you.

Why don't you post your tutorial here: Techniques .

The Technique forum is full of great ideas, and it's an easy way to direct people to see your idea with full credit to you and still be within our posting rules.

If you would like to share your technique here, you are welcome to show photos and instructions. Just be sure to checkout the Tutorial Guidelines first. However, if you are trying to promote your product, that is not allowed by the site posting rules (posted at the bottom of the page). I have tried the method (see a few posts above) with chipboard and it works pretty well for making frames. You just have to play with the thicknesses of your frame and sandwich.
