Hi, Ellen:
Since you aren't using all of the components of the Wizard charm kit, may I suggest stocking up on only the tan polymer pad material? Spellbinders does sell it apart from the kit. The embossing plates by Ellison Design are the same thickness as Fiskars plates; so using an Ellison Design embossing starter kit would be the easiest way to do plate embossing in a Cuttlebug.

I still, however, would recommend using the tan polymer by Spellbinders even if you get an embossing starter kit simply because the tan polymer embosses better (my opinion) than the silicone pad that comes in the Ellison kit. You may need two layers of the tan polymer. The problem with plumber's gasket is the variable density of what is available in the market--and it can be very hard to find in many geographic locations.

Here's how it would go in a Cuttlebug:

Plate “A”
texture Plate (Big Shot/Fiskar) Cardstock (misted)
silicone or tan poly pad
Impressions Pad (Ellison kit)

It was nice meeting you at CHA (I was at Spellbinder's booth).

Ellen, I'm curious to know if plumbers gasket material (about $3 a sheet or maybe even less) at the hardware store will do just a good of job as the charm embossing kit. Care to check into it and do a review? Then instead of saying your an "enabler", you could actually be saving us some money! ;) What do you think- care to take on my challenge?
