Cuttlebug and plastic tablecloth

Pin It
Hi all, Ive have to show another little trick with the cuttlebug. While we were away i was looking around in spotlight and found some plastic embossed table cloth....well the light bulb goes on and i bought some to try in the cuttlebug. Go here to check out what layers i used to do these ...its the same as using plastic stencils....and these were the hey!

you may find something similar in your home ware shops, i bought 1/4 of a meter and that was plenty. These were a little thinner than a plastic stencil....I hope this can give you some more thrifty ideas....until next post...Valita

and a last thought

Come let us talk together says the Lord;
no matter how deep the stain of your sins,
I can take it out and make you as clean
and fresh as fallen snow. Even if
you are stained as red as crimson,
I can make you white as wool.
Isaiah 1:18

I too love your ideas on your blog. You inspired me to buy the Fiskars texture plates when I saw them on special (At the Reject shop in Miranda for $2 per set and I bought 4 sets ie 16 textures - not bad in anybody's book!. I played with them this morning and though I have a silicone mat, I thought I would try with the tan mat and some card shim. I ended up sticking with tan mat plus 4 card shims (200gsm thickness. I then was having so much fun that I thought that I would try my plastic stencils that I used to used eons ago. This time the (Kaiser) stencils are so thin, I ended up using the tan mat and 6 card as shim and the C plate instead of the B plate. So thanks for the initial idea. Now I am off to convert them into finished cards. I would love to meet up with you and thank you in person.
