Can anyone help me please?

Evening all. Hope you've had a good day. No cards to show today but I'm hoping that someone out there might be able to give me some advice! I have taken delivery of some tan spellbinders embossing mats today with my nestabilities from the states. However, I'm not really sure how to emboss my nestabilitie die shapes with these mats. I have a cuttlebug and I'm not sure what sandwich combination to do! So if anyone can help me with my conundrum please leave me a message!

Thanks in advance, Vicky x

UPDATE - Thanks to everyone who has left me messages / links with tips on how to emboss with my nestabilities. I am very grateful. I have been practising and think I have got the hang of it now!

Thanks again, Vicky x

Hi Vicky
I have a cuttlebug and how I use the nesties to emboss is have mat A, then B then place 2-3 pieces of card as a shim then your embossing mat, then your die with the ridge facing down and then place your second B mat on top and run it through. There are some videos on youtube which is how I found out how to make them work. Good luck!
Hugs Lynsey :)

Sorry Vicky, I play with my Nesties in a BigShot and don't need embossing mats. I do hope you get to grips with it, have fun! xx

I just bought a cuttlebug and emailed Kate from Scrap and Stamp (an online and brick and mortar scrapbooking store in BC) and she sent me this link:
