    I love the idea of debossing and love that I can see the technique on video. Thanks for another great idea. A Cuttlebug is just what I need to play around and create with this new technique! I’d love to give it a try with your awesome paper and see what I can come up with to share with you.

  2. Marla H. says:

    I have debossed on a few projects. I really like the look better of embossing but sometimes I will turn it over and use the debossed side. I LOVE your papers and look of sanding them to enhance the depth and dimension on them.!!

  3. Tina M says:

    I have embossed the old way, a lightbox and stylus but oooohhh after seeing these cards and the video I would love to win this one. Thank you for the chance. And how fun it would be to use the core’dinations paper for a creation all my own!!!!

  4. LaRayne S says:

    I took a class that had some debossing projects and it was very easy and looked great. A Cuddlebug would be the ideal thing to pratice this fun technique.

  5. Ying says:

    I’d love both embossing and debossing by hand. Too bad most word ones are emboss only. I’m glad at least there’s letter press but it would be soooo cool to have more debossing options with words. There’s so many cool folders but I do still love my brass stencils.

  6. Patchi says:

    I never tried debossing… maybe I should add it to my New Year resolutions!

    And I would love to have that little green cutie!

  7. Elizabeth P says:

    I’ve not debossed before, but after watching the video, I think it will be perfect for my son’s birthday card. I love my Bug, and if I win this, I have a friend who would really enjoy it. Today’s sponsor is Provocraft !

  8. michelle says:

    i love debossing..and am always amazed at how embossing and debossing from the same folder can have 2 totally different looks when sanded…
    i think that debossing with core’dinations card stock is THE way to emboss….the finished look is fantastic!

  9. Judy says:

    I have debossed before. I like the looks of both. They look so different and can both be used to enhance your project.

  10. Ann says:

    What a great wintery card! I love my Cuttlebug and if I won today’s draw, I’d save this one to put up as a doorprize at the crop I host annually.

  11. Sheree Delaney says:

    Cuttlebug, my favorite tool! I love all the things that you can do.

  12. Barbara says:

    My favorite machine I own is the Cuttlebug. It is compact and easy to use.
    The debossing with core’dinations card stock looks like something I want to try. I love this line of paper you can be so creative!

  13. Thanks for the video… I love to learn new things
    You guys have a great product indeed

  14. auntie ang says:

    If I won this would give it to my sister who works with a group to do cards for soldiers. (and she makes cards for me too) (heehehe)
    Loving the paper it’s sooooo cool and the technic is great thanks for the share

  15. Tona says:

    I do both embossing & debossing. It’s kind of interesting how you can get different looks with the same cardstock depending on if you’ve embossed or debossed.
    Since I won yesterday, (thank you very much), please don’t include me in today’s drawing.

  16. Charlie Osborne says:

    I love the look of debossing. This is another technique I can use with my scrapbooking and cardmaking. Thank you for all the great ideas!

  17. Yes, I have made several cards that I have debossed and do that when I get tired of embossing look. I have never used the beige color, think I will try that next time. Love your video.

  18. Jessie G. says:

    I love watching the video tutorials in the learn section. I also have saved the episode of Scrapbook Memories (on DVR) where core’dinations cardstock is used to create all sorts of different fun effects.
    I have never tried to debossing on my projects. I have tried to emboss with a stylus and a stencil but with not a lot of success.
    I would love to share my project if I win the green awesome goodness. Thank you for giving this opportunity to be the proud owner of the cuttlebug.
