Embossing Challenge @ Practical Scrappers

This is my absolute favorite challenge we have at Practical Scrappers. There is not a machine out there that I enjoy more than my Cuttlebug. Don't get me wrong, I love my Cricut but, it is in a definite second place finish in my book. For this week's challenge I decided I'd share with everyone at Practical one of my favorite techniques to do with my Cuttlebug and Nestabilities that DT leader Nilda at The Cuttlebug Spot came up with and created this fabulous tutorial on how to do that you can check out here.

Here's my project:

The only thing that I do differently from the video is that I do not use the tan mat by Spellbinders. I use what they call Plumbers's Pack that I got from my Lowes (in the plumbing department). I comes in a few different thicknesses I have both 1/8" and 1/16" and it's a 6x6 square. You can buy them individually which only cost me $1.44 for the one piece and $1.19 for the other. Much more cost effective than the $8-$10 on the Spelldinders tan mat. I bought both thicknesses due the different thicknesses of chipboard there are. You have to play around a little bit to figure out which size works best, but once you get familar with it which to use --it's a piece of cake!

Thanks for stopping in! Don't forget to enter your project by Saturday July 17th @ 5pm EST for a chance to win our prize pack of three digi stamps from our sponsor this month Digi Doodle.

Happy Scrappin!
