  2. Well, after searching and searching I found thru google images the exact same plates. It's cuttlebug. And I need to go out and purchase some kind of grid case to use them. I love my cuttlebug, but I'm not impressed with no instructions nor tools needed, list inside. If the company put all this on the outer package that I've discarded months ago please take note that packages get thrown out. duhhhhh.The company is not even indicated on the plates so there was no way to easily find out any information on it. These beautiful plates are now useless until I can find this grided case....if I'm going to even bother now! :(

  4. looks like it would make an interesting embossing on a card front. glad someone sent you a link with the directions and info for using this new system
    what a shame to have to go through that just to use a new toy

    1. Ya, really eh! It's not the only company either that doesn't tell you what you need to buy to make it usable. It's buyer beware! Cause if you can't make anymore purchases, the item becomes a waste. Or the project can't be completed until you've gone back to the store to buy more...if the store carries it even. Anyways...I've calmed down a bit now...lol....thanks for dropping in! xox

  5. I bet you could use them to impress a sheet of polymer clay. That would be cool!

  6. It is a 10 second studio embossing plate, or at least is a rip off of one. This is how I make the "sandwich" in my sizzix BigShot Pro. Plastic cutting plate, embossing die, paper, rubber mat and 2nd plastic plate. Roll through the machine. There are video's on 10 second Studio website. You also can emboss metal with these plates.
