Renew Embossing Plate by Baking - by Chrissy. When your embossing plate looks like the one on the left, wrap it in a single layer of foil, place in an oven-proof flat dish, and place another dish (the heavier the better) on top. Preheat oven to 170C (about 325F) and bake for 30 minutes. Carefully remove it from the oven & unwrap, using hot pad mitts (It will be VERY hot!). Let cool. Wash the plate to remove any debris. Then it should look like the one on the right. I tried this, & it works!

Embossed Ribbon - "I used "Stiffen Stuff" (found at your local craft store) and it worked beautifully. You simply spray the ribbon, pop it in the microwave for 30-40 seconds and you'll have nice crisp ribbon. Then you're ready to run it through your Big Shot using the embossing folder of your choice."

Partial Embossing- This is brillant and so much easier than dealing with cardboard shims. The triangle is taped to the outside of the plate and that is the ONLY portion that is embossed!
