NPOTW – Sizzix Texturz!

Sizzix™ Texturz Texture Plates

Welcome to the next dimension in creativity. Texturz instantly add remarkable textured patterns and designs to thin surfaces such as paper, cardstock and metallic foil. Breathtaking gift wraps, tags, boxes, bags and frames are only the surface of what’s possible! With a texturizing area measuring 5 5/8″ x 7 1/4″, Texturz Texture Plates feature double-sided patterns.
Texturz Texture Plates work in the Big Shot and BIGkick machines only.

Last year I was on the hunt for the Big Impressions Starter Kit (or BISK) for my Big Shot. I had heard that this item was great for embossing cardstock. But it was so popular that it was sold out everywhere! Then I was in AC Moore and saw the Sizzix™ Texturz Starter Kit which was basically the same thing. You get 3 different plates (double sided) for a total of 6 designs, the silicone pad, and the Impressions Pad. The Starter Kit retails for $20. The impressions are not quite as deep as the Cuttlebug™ Embossing Folders, but they still emboss very nicely (as shown in my most recent card). It is a great value since you get 6 designs for only $10. I recently purchased the Winter/Holiday set and it has some very cool designs! Even though the website says that you need the multipurpose platform, I use my regular platform (that came with the Big Shot) and it still works very well. The Fiskars™ Texture Plates and just about any brass stencil will also work with the Starter Kit.
