No More Shims Embossing Mat

We have a brand new product in the shop! It’s the No More Shims Embossing Mat from Scor-Pal.

no more shims

The Top Selling No More Shims Mat has taken embossing with the Cuttlebug and the Big Shot to a new dimension.

In addition to using it with the Spellbinders dies, you can now emboss things such as leaves, sequins, lace, and lots more ordinary household materials to make great embossed backgrounds. When putting one of your Nestabilities through, and even your Impressabilities, you will see the huge difference it makes. You can run coins and charms through and make your own embellishments by embossing them on to craft foil (up to the thickness of a quarter). You can flatten bottle caps with the mat in both the Cuttlebug and the Big Shot. You can flatten up to 6 aluminum caps at a time. All instructions included with the mat for the Cuttlebug and the Big Shot. Please note you cannot run coins, bottle caps, etc. through an electric machine, but you will be able to emboss lace, leaves, etc.  This truly is the only embossing mat you will ever need! NOTHING ELSE COMPARES!!!

Here are some links to YouTube videos for using this fantastic mat with the different machines:

Tim Holtz® Distress Stains™

We have all 37 colors of the new Tim Holtz Distress Stains!

Distress Stains are fluid water-based dyes for papers and other porous surfaces. Use for quick and easy ink coverage for backgrounds and larger areas. Mist with water to lighten color and create mottled effects. Apply layers of stain to achieve more saturated color. Available in the entire Distress color palette. 

The brushed nylon dabber top has a built-in spring valve. This allows for controlling the release of Distress Stains from the bottle. By pressing the dabber top down onto surface, the valve opens and fluid releases. Lift dabber away from surface to stop fluid flow. Spread Distress Stains by swiping the dabber top lightly as a brush across the surface.

The Distress Stains coordinate with the all of the other Distress products including the embossing powders, Crackle Paint, Stickles and most importantly, Distress Ink Pads.
