Well for those of you that have not seen a cuttlebug or tried one out they are great...
You take card or ........ fill in the blank yourself and run it through the machine and tada
you piece of card is embossed.. you can do all kinds of things with it ... I KNOW I KNOW
like I needed one more thing to add to my collection but they are LOVELY.
Some of these embossing plates are from Tim HOltz collection they are called textured folders and he has some great designs... I am sure this is just the tip of the iceberg. Carol McFee of Textiles Tales and I decided to do a virtual playday together with the machines we both have... of course I much like hers better. As I have put my card through the machines but have not painted them all yet .. but keep a watch out here and you can see them in my work
I am even recycling old coloured envelopes that I have kept .. (secretly I am a magpie ;) )
I have also made some cards with the embossing folder made of angelina fibres.

Here is some different weights of metal that I put through the cuttlebug , metal from tomato paste tube, other metal shim that I had as well as put some felt and organza in one hit and it came out great there is the piece I cut it out from as well.
The second picture is hand made paper and card that I had hanging around as well as an old silver card back .. that goes through really nicely ... as well as some vellum turns out well.. I keep all kinds of cards from christmas and recycle them.
The next two are pelmet vilene one plain white and I cut out some of the die cuts ... I really like this die cut .
