'Sizzix Ink-It's'-Tutorial and Giveaway

Take a look at these Brand New Letter Press Die's
Scrapbookers Paradise on line STORE
regular $7.50 on for $5.99
I picked 'Plate Music Notes' to work  play with
First I tried several inks and used scraps of paper
to see how they went through my Cuttlebug
These plates are a lovely and thick one piece die

I was able to use it to imprint on molding paste as you can see by my last example on this photo.
They create a really deep pattern.
If I were to do that again, I would let the paste dry
a little longer so it doesn't lift the top layer off the paper.

For my project I used the emboss sample which is first on this sheet

The Sizzix Letter Press and carefully cut the top off of
 an empty American Craft Ribbon Spool

For the embossing, I ran it through the Cuttlebug

After much experimenting the sandwich that worked for me
'A' plate
Letter Press Die preinked with watermark
Paper Strip
Felt spacer

Run it through the machine, then emboss with your
choice of embossing powder
