Totally awesome Betsy, beautiful and fun projects!
I am also here to tell you that I make my first card using the Market kit, I just LOVE it, especially the super fine gold tape and the gold paper, they are awesome, thanks so much for putting together this kit and now I am looking forward to the next one!!!! (happy happy me!)

Thanks, Betsy! I was wondering how to use my dies to create impressions instead of cuts. Your cards are beautiful, as always!

love the card with your Market kit supplies and need to take another look at Ikat now! Thanks for sharing Betsy!

Kathy Stacy

I'd heard of using these as embossing folders so to speak, but hadn't thought to stamp through them to make cool patterns. Thanks for your great ideas!


Awesome . I have some of the cover plates but I have never used them that way. The cards are beautiful. Thank you

Nancy Penir

Wonderful information and samples. Can't wait for my Market kit arrives with that beautiful foil! Thanks Betsy!

maria f.

You never cease to amaze with your creativity!


Just beautiful! I love the colors and this most definitely inspires me to get my cover plates out and emboss them on my cards. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!

Jackie Lic

These are beautiful! Thanks for sharing.

Leigh Penner

Wow, these all look amazing, Betsy!

Anne Hartschlag

Thanks Betsy. I wondered what I was doing wrong, now I know I had my sandwich wrong. I am going to try that today before I forget. I particularly like the card with the hexagon cover plate.


Beautiful cards, I just love this technique, thanks for sharing the cuttlebug plate system too!

Hi Betsy, I received my kit yesterday. But I did not get the gold foil. And there was supposed to be some sort of labels also according to my understanding.
Can you tell me why or where this stuff is. Thanks.


Thanks so much for this great tutorial! Now I *finally* understand how to do it!


Thank you!!!!!!! ;-)


Gorgeous! Great idea. TFS


These cards are gorgeous. I had impressed my cover plates before but totally forgot about that technique. I love the addition of the stamped hexagons and the gold foil triangles.

Great tutorial!

Betsy, thank you for the wonderful ideas. I can't decide which one I like the best. They are all so fun. I am going to definitely try one or all of them this weekend.

What a great post. I love the look of all of these! Just beautiful.


Thx for the tutorial. I forget to "impress" with the cover plates, which I adore. :) Love your hexagon card! The others are nice, as well. :)
