I went on SCS and the Cricut Community forums for some tips and trick and tried different papers, mat stacks, even Kleenex! No luck. I was so frustrated I went that same night and returned it. Anywho, I was checking out the forums again today, and Lynn Phelps over at SCS posted that she spritzes her paper with rubbing alcohol because it works great to smooth out creases when embossing and gives a nice deep texture when using texture plates! (So at this point I was a little disappointed I returned the CB plates, because I wasn't able to try it out with the new product.) But I was totally excited about the texture plates! So this morning I filled up my spritzer with rubbing alcohol and ran it through, and WOW! What a difference. I took some pictures to show you the results.
Here is my mister and SU texture plate.
Thank you Lynne!

Well I am on Spring Break from school, and I have been LAZY! I think the only reason I made a card today was because I got my Stampin' Up order today. Not sure what has gotten into me. It certainly doesn't help that we are in the middle of a snow storm here is WI! I think I need to move! ENOUGH snow already! Anywho! I used the CAS challenge from SCS for this card. It was a sketch challenge. I love the new embossing folder from SU's summer mini coming out soon, it is larger than I had expected, but I know I'll be having some fun with it!
Thanks for stopping by!
