    Since I'm new, I have seen and heard about embossing. I do have a Cricut, but I see on QVC and HSN that there are machines out that also emboss.

    I just wondered would recommendations you would have if I wanted to get into embossing and what to buy. I see there are also light boxes with the tool (not sure of the name) for embossing as well.

    Just wondered what you'd recommend and if it's a machine, which one.

    I don't do much dry embossing, but when I do I just use a brass stencil and stylus. I don't use a light box either. I just tape my stencil to my sizzix pad or cutting mat, go around the outline first and then fill it in. If I had all the pieces and dies for my sizzix I'm sure I would do more of it.

    A lot of the girls have gotten the Cuttlebug. I will be getting one this weekend. It has embossing plates and is one of the reasons I'm getting it.

    I use the cuttlebug embossing folders on my sizzix and sidekick and they work great. I really like them a lot.

    Also, is the Cuddlebug the machine that uses other machines (like the sizzix and sidekick) "plates" (not sure if that is the correct term or not)?

    Wet embossing is using pigment ink and then adding your embossing powder to it. after that you use your heating gun and heat it up and it heats dry and raised (I GUESS i should've said HEAT embossing, not wet? sorry about that)

    Dry embossing is when you use your stylus pen or a machine to emboss an image on your paper or whatever you're working - it gives your paper or item that you're working on texture. Very cool!

    I've got the fiskars thing for embossing but I haven't used it in a while. You sandwich your paper between your design and there are pegs to hold it down. You take your stylus and go along the outside edge several times and when you take it out you have a raised image on the other side. If you want to add chalk or ink it you can put it back in right side up with the template reveresd so it fits over it and color it in that way so you don't get whatever you're using where you don't want it.
